Knox Road just got a lot quieter.
All but seven of the 29 original Knox Boxes—the grubby three-story apartment houses that attracted upperclassmen on a budget (as well as countless tiny critters)—are gone.
Toll Brothers Apartment Living in November demolished most of the original homes just off campus to make way for 1,493 beds in traditional double, suite-style and townhouse layouts, along with retail stores and restaurants.
Project Manager Dustin Kinney says the development is a big step in transforming College Park into a top 10 college town. Terrapin Row is scheduled to open in summer 2016.
