Tom Winkopp, Core Spaces to Develop Clemson Student Village at The Pier

Chicago-based Core Spaces (“Core”), a residential real estate developer, owner/operator, and Tom Winkopp Development (“Winkopp”) of Clemson have announced a joint venture to create one of the country’s largest off-campus student housing development projects into a 140-acre, walkable student village located near Clemson University.

Tom Winkopp is a 1988 graduate of Clemson and is also former president of the Clemson Chamber of Commerce. He, along with partners, has owned the property since 2007…

The student village will include 4,000 beds, expanding upon the development known as The Pier, as well as athletic and fitness facilities, pools, outdoor grills, student clubhouses, beachfront access, and waterfront trails.

Once fully constructed, the site will feature a new downtown locale that is walkable and accessible to all students and the local community. The student village is one piece of a larger master-planned, mixed-use project on the entire 325-acre site to be completed during the next three to five years.
