On the subject of economic development - particularly in Michigan's urban centers - the state's biggest research universities (Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, and Wayne State University) published their 10th economic impact report that illustrates the power our own nationally-ranked research cluster has on the state. From the press release:
"Michigan’s University Research Corridor was responsible for $2.15 billion in research and development (R&D) spending in fiscal year 2015, an increase of 53 percent since 2007, according to the 10th Annual Economic Impact & Benchmark Report released Tuesday. The report also notes the URC contributed $16.5 billion to Michigan’s economy, an increase of $3.7 billion since 2007, the year the URC was formed and began benchmarking its impact on the state of Michigan."

Disclosure: The University Research Corridor is a client.
Two new downtown housing projects are in the works. Both will be aimed at students and have internal parking structures. They are also in great locations and within walking distance to Dickson and the University.
Project Columbia will be located where the University Baptist Church's SAC building is currently located on the NW corner of Watson and Campbell. This building will have a 6 level parking structure surrounded by 137 unit housing complex. This is what I can tell from the plans (see link below). The 1-4 bedroom units will have close to 500 bedrooms total. (This complex may be closer to 200 units according to the Fayetteville Flyer). I do know that UBC has been looking to sell the SAC building and may have it under contract currently.
Project Canada will be located on the lot to the west of UBC on the corner of West and Lafayette. I believe there are a couple of older houses and a small apartment building currently there as well as a parking lot. This building will also an interior parking structure but will be larger with 183 proposed units
