Coming Soon: Groundbreaking for South Kensington’s Oxford Mills

It’s going to be an educational paradise, with a headquarters for Teach for America, discounted apartments for teachers, a cafe where intellectual ideas are discussed, offices for educational nonprofits and a fitness center, among other things. The project, headed up by D3 Real Estate Development, will be called the Center for Educational Excellence, and open next spring.

The details for the groundbreaking have been announced, and the mayor, Darrell Clarke and Superintendent Hite will celebrate the $35 million project not only with some dirt and a shovel but with festivities that include music, performance and food and drink. It will all be happening between Oxford and Jefferson Street in South Kensington. We’ll have more from the event itself, but until then, all we can say is, Wow. This city is really changing.
