Luxury Student Housing Opens at Arizona State University
- Nov 20, 2015
University House Communities recently opened the second phase of University House, a private luxury student housing development located on Arizona State University’s campus in Tempe. The new 16-story, 148,680-square-foot building has 242 beds with two-, three- and four-bedroom options.
University House offers units sized between 716 to 1,289 square feet for nine- and 12-month leases. The new apartments are move-in ready, with platform beds, kitchen and living room furniture. Amenities include resort-style pool and hot tub, a scoreboard-sized LED outdoor TV screen, a clubroom with gaming systems, a yoga and steam room, fitness center, outdoor grilling stations as well as indoor/outdoor study areas and conference rooms.
“University House represents a new trend in luxury student housing, with top-of-the-line features including nine-foot exposed concrete ceilings, porcelain tile bathrooms, and full-sized washers and dryers,” David Pierce, executive vice president of development, University House Communities, said in prepared remarks.
Dallas-based architecture firm BOKA Powell designed University House to complement the existing adjacent first phase. Sixthriver Architects was in charge of handling the interior design for the new tower.
“We successfully utilized the traditional design elements already present in the existing building, but upgraded the new building to give it more dynamism and visual appeal as the most prominent student housing development on campus,” added John Orfield, principal, BOKA Powell.
