Cochran will lead McKinley's new Purpose Built Student Housing division.

While this is a new addition to McKinley's real estate platform, the company has a long history in student housing, tracing its start as an operator of such housing to 1968. McKinley has also followed an acquisition strategy of buying quality garden apartments in tertiary college student markets like Ann Arbor; Champaign, Ill.; and Gainesville, Fla., throughout its history.
