Boca Raton, Fla.—A joint venture between Rosemurgy Properties, Giles Capital Group and Lewis Rental Properties have developed University Park, a 279,097-square-foot, off-campus student housing community in Boca Raton, Fla.

This is the first, purpose-built student housing project in the area. The community consists of eight four-story buildings on 10.89 acres and includes accommodations for 598 beds in 159 units.

“It’s all about creating an experience. We’ve created a world-class experience for the students as well as their parents, with customer service, amenities and unit finishes comparable to a five-star hotel or resort,” Rick Giles, managing partner of Park Partners Residential and founder of Giles Capital Group, told MHN. “We are in the retail and hospitality business, so we design our communities with top retailers and hotels in mind, such as: Apple, Starbucks, Urban Outfitters, The Breakers, Four Seasons and W Hotels.”

Located at 135 N. W. 20th St., the luxury student living community offers fully furnished two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments with modern furnishings, energy efficient appliances, flat screen TV’s, in-unit washer/dryers, kitchens, living areas, bedrooms and private bathrooms.

“The property is located in Boca Raton, one of the most upscale and desirable cities in America, and within a half mile of the Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College campuses, and within 1 mile of Lynn University, as well as minutes from some of the world’s best beaches, restaurants, retail, and entertainment venues,” Giles said.

Amenities at University Park include a state-of-the-art 13,500 square foot, two-story clubhouse with student lounge, 24-hour fitness facilities with a cross fit room and yoga studio, hi-tech video gaming room, computer lab, study and conference rooms, and a mini-store with fresh and frozen foods and snacks, beverages and sundries.

Outdoor features incorporate a resort-style pool area with green space for lounging, barbecue grills, and study hammocks. Additionally, the complex will offer 1GB Internet speed and wireless Internet throughout the property, a cell phone boost system, secured indoor bicycle storage, on-site property management and limited-access gated entrance.

Free transportation will be provided in the form of a private shuttle bus to transport residents to and from Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College in Boca Raton.
