Under the terms of the 40-year partnership, Corvias is financing, renovating, managing, operating, and maintaining four residential facilities on the Central Campus of Howard University, in the heart of Washington, DC. Corvias and Howard worked together to create a partnership structure that addressed both the short- and long-term housing needs. The initial scope of the program included the renovation and management of Howard Plaza Towers (East and West), two 11-story apartment-style residence halls designated for upperclassmen and graduate students with a total of 777 units, 1,753 end-state beds, and a basement with 368 parking spaces. The total estimated cost of renovation is $73 million.
