CHARLESTON, SC—CampusWorks Development is kicking off an urban, off-campus student housing community that may turn student heads. The Charlotte-based student housing developer just kicked off construction on a 430 bed project serving College of Charleston.
Dubbed 930 NoMo, the student housing project is a joint venture partnership with Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors and Kaplan Residential. PNC Real Estate is the senior lender. The project is set to open its doors in time for the fall 2015 academic school year.
Located in the North Morrison District on the Charleston peninsula, 930 NoMo is rising from 2.5 acres of dirt next to the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge on the Cooper River. The student housing project will include a 6,500-square-foot clubhouse, 10,000-square-foot pool terrace, 9,000-square-foot elevated courtyards, waterfront views, and community balconies with a rooftop terrace.
When finished the urban student housing community will be an elevator-served five-story wood-framed building with one-story over podium parking. A cycle center, sound proof music room and large reception lobby will greet students and guests on the first floor.
930 NoMo will also include resort style outdoor features with a large swimming pool including a tanning ledge, sundeck, fire pits, and grilling areas. On top of all this, two service bars, a built-in ice machine, a DJ booth, cabanas, retractable FUNbrellas, and a bocce court are n the plans.
Practically speaking, 930 NoMo has bus line access. The student housing community also plans to provide a shuttle for students to and from campus, and will service social hours throughout the weekend.
Charlotte-based architect, Axiom Architecture designed the student housing community. CW Construction, a CampusWorks Company, will be the general contractor and Asset Campus Housing will manage the student housing property.
