With new luxury dorm, Orlando philanthropists offer local Jewish campus group a permanent funding stream.
Orlando, Fla. — Real estate developer Hank Katzen has a conviction: If you build it, they will come.
Except this is no baseball field in an Iowa cornfield. It’s a $60 million, 600,000-square-foot luxury dormitory at the nation’s second-largest college campus, the University of Central Florida in this city.
When it opens in August, the new dorm will push the bounds of cushiness. Every room has en-suite bathrooms and flat-screen TVs.
