Developer To Build Student Apartments On Innovation Campus

A private developer plans to build a student apartment complex on Wichita State University’s Innovation Campus.

MWCB LLC will finance and build the new facility, which will include 112 apartment units for graduate and undergraduate students who are at least in their sophomore year. WSU staff and employees who work for companies on the Innovation Campus can also live in the building.

MWCB is a development firm run by Wichita businessmen David Murfin, Nestor Weigand, Ivan Crossland and Steven Barrett. The group is also involved in building a joint law enforcement training center for Sedgwick County and the City of Wichita.

The school says no public or university funds will be used to finance the apartment complex. The project is expected to be complete by August 2017.
