LAKE FOREST, IL—Lake Forest College here will receive a new 233-bed student housing facility the next school year, thanks to a new development agreement the school has struck with Balfour Beatty Campus Solutions LLC. The Newtown Square, PA-based student housing developer and operator has teamed up with Chicago-based architect Solomon Cordwell Buenz and Walsh Construction, a construction contractor also based in Chicago, on the $15-million project.

Located on the College’s South Campus, the development calls for the demolition of Moore Hall, one of Lake Forest’s existing student housing facilities. The new 62,000-square-foot community is slated for delivery in time for the 2013-2014 school year.
