Rhodes College will be getting a new residential space soon.

Memphis-based general contractor Grinder, Taber & Grinder Inc. filed a $13 million building permit to construct a 52,499-square- foot dormitory at 2000 N. Parkway.

Construction should begin in March on the project, called the West Village Dormitory.

Norfolk, Va.-based Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Co. is listed as architect on the project, while OCGB Inc. in Memphis is listed as engineer.

The building will be located near the college’s main entrance, just south of Bailey Lane.
