Construction is nearing completion on the new student housing project for Boston University in Regent Street, Sydney. The project for Ceerose Developments and ZVI Constructions will provide student accommodation for 175 students. The project was designed in association with SylvesterFuller Architects and It includes 2 theatres, cafe, administration and laundromat.
