GEORGETOWN, KY (04/25/2012 ) – To coincide with the celebration of its 225th year as an institution of higher learning, Georgetown College officials have announced that construction of a new $1.7 million, 85-bed townhouse complex will soon be underway on Military Street, between College and Jackson streets in Georgetown. The new complex hopefully will be completed and ready for occupancy for the Fall ’12 semester.

This new facility, being built by Barlow Homes (whose CEO is Jim Barlow, a Georgetown alumnus and current trustee) will feature a series of joined townhouses, each with three bedrooms and three baths. Exteriors will be brick, and the new complex will closely resemble Rucker Village, the new residential townhouses (previously built, at cost, by Barlow Homes) that were dedicated at Homecoming 2011 in September on Dudley Avenue in Georgetown.

According to Dr. Todd Gambill, VP/Student Life at the College: “We are blessed to have Jim Barlow and his amazing organization as part of our College family. This new project, when completed, will be very similar to the very popular, nearby facility also built by Jim’s team – and we’re excited about giving even more Georgetown students an opportunity to live in such outstanding accommodations.”
