COLLEGE TOWN - KENT

Phase I - Kent, OH

In August 2012, Fairmount Properties celebrated the grand opening for College Town Kent. Located in historic Downtown Kent, this new district is less than a five minute walk to the KSU campus and their ever-growing student population. This exciting, $100+ million pedestrian-scaled development is anchored by the KSU hotel and office space for hundreds of professionals.

College Town includes 200,000+ sq. ft. of street- level retail including apparel, home and specialty stores as well as restaurants with outdoor patio seating. Class A office space and residences geared to young professionals complement the development, adding additional built-in customers for the ground floor restaurants and retail. College Town Kent is providing KSU and surrounding communities a vibrant, engaging place to live, work, shop, and recreate.

The new office, retail, entertainment and residential spaces under construction are seen here as essential ingredients in a civic formula for attracting students and educated professionals, defining spending habits and rebranding Kent as a flourishing 21st-century college town.
