Always a demand in West Campus. $70+/SF.

Now, what you build will determine the demand. Are you building something janky, but with all the modern amenities students enjoy, and at a monthly rental rate lower than currently offered?

Or, are you building the Taj Mahal and charging exorbitant rates?

Is it east of San Gabriel, or west of Leon?

The WC market is saturated with new builds, as is. When The Block starts offering 100% commission structures, you know the competition is stiff. What will you be offering that sets your build apart from the others?

The cost will vary depending on what your looking to build and the quality of the materials you build with.
