COLUMBIA - Over the past decade, the landscape of Columbia has evolved dramatically. With the introduction of student-only apartment complexes, much of the city, particularly areas in southern Columbia, has seen the introduction of large "luxury" accommodation for MU students. (See timeline.)

The large-scale development of these student housing sites began in 2008 with complexes like Campus View Apartments and Campus Lodge, which MU has also leased to freshmen without on-campus housing as "Tiger Diggs" and "Mizzou Quads," respectively.

Around this time, several other development companies built complexes like Copper Beech Townhomes, The Reserve at Columbia and Brookside Townhomes.

Development tapered off between 2009 and 2011 and resumed in 2011 with The Grove apartment complex, located on the corner of Rock Quarry Road and Grindstone Parkway.

The Google Maps images below show how much the landscape has changed in these construction spots. (Read more.)

Here is the site of the Brookside development.

Brookside expanded its presence in Columbia, expanding from south Columbia to the downtown area with Brookside on College and Brookside Downtown in 2012 and 2013.

Brookside on College burned down in 2012 and displaced hundreds of students set to live there.

In 2013, construction of these student apartment complexes came back with a force with several new student housing developments, with some plagued by controversy - like Aspen Heights.

2013 saw construction of Aspen Heights on Nifong Boulevard, The Domain at the corner of Stadium Boulevard and Highway 63, Brookside Downtown and The Lofts at 308 Ninth Street. The Den is set to open in 2014.

Here is a timeline of student housing developments in Columbia from 2008 to 2014:
