Austin, Texas—Austin‐based developer Lincoln Ventures is moving forward with development plans for a 160-bed student housing community near the University of Texas at Austin campus. The company plans to break ground on The Ruckus this summer and open the seven-story building by August 2017.
Located at 2502 Nueces St., The Ruckus will feature 45 units with two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom floorplans. Amenities include a sky gym/fitness center and terrace, cyber café, gaming area, 24‐hour study lounges and conference rooms, around‐the‐clock package concierge, secure access and parking, as well as a coffee bar.
“My vision for The Ruckus is to be disruptive and trend-setting in the student-housing industry,” David Kanne, president of Lincoln Ventures, said in prepared remarks. “We want to create a unique living experience for college students, unlike what is typically offered by other institutional developments. We want The Ruckus to have attitude and reflect the personality of today’s students.”
The team working on The Ruckus project is formed by developer Lincoln Ventures, architecture company Mark Hart Architecture and engineering consultant Wuest Group.
