The country’s largest dormitory developer has proposed a 95-unit dorm for the University of Southern California’s medical center in Boyle Heights.

American Campus Communities filed plans for the 134,000-square-foot structure, which would include some leasing space and open outdoor space. It would serve the school’s graduate students.

The plans include a handful of addresses at the corner of Valley Boulevard and San Pablo Street. If approved, the building will rise just south of Lincoln Park, near the USC Health Sciences campus.

The land is owned by USC. American Campus purchased the ground lease in 2016 for $2 million. It consists of two parking lots and a parking structure, near the Currie Hall dorm. American Campus owns and manages Curry Hall and has a ground lease on the lots. The company also has the ground lease for two other USC dorms.

While there are few details on the new project, the amenity package for Currie Hall includes fully furnished apartments, a fitness center, swimming pool, and a recreation center.
