Out with the Old, In with the New: University Arbors Coming Down

Over the years, Oxford has seen many new buildings come up where old ones once were. With the growth of the school and the town, new businesses and homes are underway all along College Hill Road and a new apartment complex will replace an outdated one soon.

The Oxford Planning Commission has approved of the plans to build the new development, which will simply be called The Arbors. The new development is said to include 10 buildings with 98 units as well as amenities such as a variety of spaces for social gatherings, a pool and a dog park.
When The Arbors open, they will be available to rent so students as well as families can reside there without having to purchase one as a condo. But resell may become available in the future for those looking for a more permanent arrangement.

The Arbors structure is going to be built in The Davidson Creek Floodway, which is a flood zone area. To avoid the properties being flooded out the units will have parking on the bottom floor and everything else built above.
It is unclear when the construction for this new project will take place, but the 100 residents currently living in the University Arbor apartments have been notified of the coming demolition. Oxford residents and students can prepare for the new apartment complex with excitement.
