Various shopping, entertainment and dining venues including El Patron Supermarket, Jamos Café, UAH University Park and Burger King are nearby.
The four-story community will include a mix of one-, two- and four-bedroom units and is slated to house undergraduate and graduate students, as well as UAH faculty and staff. Students at Nexus on Holmes will make use of outdoor amenities including two courtyards, outdoor pool and barbecue grilling area, as well as indoor amenities such as community kitchen, TV lounge, multi-purpose room and quiet study lounges. Additionally, parking will be available in surface lots adjacent to the new community.
