With all the new off campus purpose built student housing built over the last 10 years, I really question why this is needed.

More importantly, University rankings depend critically on offering residence space to 100% of the incoming freshman class.

Yeah, for that 10 year gap, they've been steadily reducing the amount of Rez space for upper years to make space for frosh.

In addition, UW can offer secure, clean, habitable residence space that is built well vs. some of the student-geared warehouses...er...apartments that have been built in the last few years.

Ok, I'll bite. In what way are more "warehouse"ish than a standard residence building on campus?

Or is that part of the RoW tradition for using inflammatory language when referring to Town-Gown urban aspects?

Haven't you ever heard of respecting the existing historical built environment? Gotta blend in with UW Place.
