Greystar Student Living, a world-class provider in the student housing and higher education real estate services sector, has been awarded the management of Circle West Campus a new, 477-unit development. Circle West Campus will feature a mix of studios, one-, two-, and four-bedroom apartments within walking distance to The University of Texas at Austin. All units will be designed and built to exceed Austin’s Energy Green Building Multifamily standards, which include Energy Star appliances. The property will have upscale amenities for residents such as a resort-style pool, tanning beds, and a community study café and lounge. The recreational room will feature the latest interactive gaming systems, televisions, a pool table and a poker table. Student residents will have access to covered parking and a community grilling area. The property’s proximity to campus provides students an opportunity to live close to school, employment centers, dining, shopping, and recreational lifestyle destinations. The first units are expected to be delivered and ready for occupancy in June 2012, in time for students to settle in before the start of fall classes.
