Residential Real Estate: With Tuscany Village dorms, SSU can house 3,200 students

Also: $310 million in 'stimulus' available for affordable housingConstruction of Sonoma State University's newest campus housing facility, Tuscany Village, continues on schedule with a planned August opening date.

Tuscany Village consists of eight, two-story townhome clusters with a community building in the center of the 12-acre site on the southeast corner of the campus. Each of the 1,500-square-foot townhomes has four bedrooms (two singles and two doubles), four baths, a kitchen with breakfast bar, dining and living rooms. The townhomes are furnished and have radiant floor heating, wireless and direct wire Internet connections, cable television and local phone service.

With the addition of Tuscany's 700 beds, the university will be able to accommodate 3,200 students living on the campus, nearly 40 percent of the student population.

The $46 million project was funded by the sale of California State University Systemwide Revenue Bonds with the rental income paid by students paying for the mortgage and operating costs.

Wright Contracting of Santa Rosa is the general contractor.
