Plans to spiff up the Samish Way corridor are taking shape near Western Washington University in Bellingham with one of two new five-story student residential buildings tentatively set to open in fall 2019.
Hardwood-style floors, a multimedia area with gaming systems, and rooftop lounges are just some of the things students can look forward to at Samish Station, the new student-housing complex of 58 studio, one- and two-bedroom units.
The privately owned complex is located just north of the Walgreen’s pharmacy on Samish Way. It will serve as a benchmark for further construction and become a landmark for the Samish Way Urban Village, according to its design review permit. The urban village plan for Samish Way, aimed at upgrading the area, was originally approved by the city in 2009.
The new apartments will offer another option for college students looking to live off-campus.
Samish Station joins Gather Bellingham and Lark Bellingham as premium student-housing options near Western Washington University.
