The 488-bed project is under construction north of UTA Boulevard in Arlington.
Arlington, Texas — American Campus Communities, Inc. (ACC), an owner, manager and developer of student housing properties in the United States, has begun construction of a $24.9 million, off-campus student housing complex adjacent to the University of Texas at Arlington (UT-Arlington) called University Centre on UTA Boulevard. The 488-bed project is under construction north of UTA Boulevard near the University’s Maverick Activities Center and is designed as an urban infill community that will complement the city’s master plan for revitalization of the downtown area. The four-story development will feature a 7,040-square-foot community center that includes a fitness center, a game lounge, a student lounge, a wireless Internet café, a patio and a resort-style pool. It will also include a three-story, gated parking garage. The community will primarily consist of four-bedroom units with a small mix of two- and three-bedroom units, all of which will include private bedrooms and bathrooms. All units will be fully furnished and include washers and dryers. Units will be leased by the bedroom on an individual lease liability. Occupancy is expected in Fall 2012.
