Tempe, Ariz. — Legacy Partners Residential has received city approval for the development of University Village 2.0, a new $60 million mixed-use, 775-bed student housing community in Tempe, located near Arizona State University.
Located directly adjacent to Tempe’s light rail line, University Village 2.0 will replace a 1960s-era student housing complex, which will be demolished. KTGY is the project’s designer and architect.
University Village 2.0 will have 260 units and include studio, one-, two- and four-bedroom units. The community will also include 1,800 square feet of ground-level retail space. The units will range in size from 445 square feet to approximately 1,400 square feet and feature high-end finishes, stone countertops, stainless steel kitchen appliances, vinyl wood-plank flooring and in-unit washers and dryers. The majority of the units will feature the four-bedroom floorplans.
The development will include multiple indoor and outdoor amenities, including a resort-style pool with beach entry, outdoor jumbo TV, sand volleyball court, fitness center and clubroom spaces.
University Village 2.0 will consist of a single, five-story apartment building wrapped around two central courtyards and a parking garage. Legacy Partners plans to start demolition and construction on University Village 2.0 by summer 2016, and open for the fall 2018 semester.
