The School at Spring Garden Changing With the Times

PTAA board member Amanda Williams was recently interviewed about her company’s planned upgrades for its The School at Spring Garden property. From the article:

BSC Holdings has operated The School at Spring Garden since 1995, when college students typically wanted apartments with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Students now want private space in smaller apartments, often a one-bedroom, one-bath place or at most, two bedrooms with two bathrooms, said Amanda Williams, vice president of BSC Holdings.

So the company will soon begin gutting original four-bedroom units and reconfiguring the apartments in the historic Pomona High School so it can keep attracting students from UNC-Greensboro…

The plan is to break up 59 apartments and increase the number to 80 smaller units when the process is complete over several years.

The proposed project requires a rezoning so BSC Holdings is currently working with the city planning department and meeting with the Lindley Park Neighborhood Association to make sure they support the rezoning when it goes before the zoning commission and city council.
