HOUGHTON ON THE GRID will be the second building available in The Grid District for master lease to a local college or university. MG2’s renovation will marry the historic exterior of The Houghton Building with modern interiors, resulting in a much sought after living experience for those students in search of something more than standard student housing. A host of amenities such as a 24 hour gym, concierge / security and study area will ensure that all the residents’ housing needs are satisfied.
