Enterprising $54 Million ECU Campus-Edge Student Housing Project Launched

Two local Greenville developers, Taft Development Group and Ward Holdings, announced the initiation of the prodigious student housing project that will be located near downtown Greenville and the main campus of East Carolina University. The five-story mixed-use facility will feature 275 student apartments containing a total of 675 bedrooms.

Plans project that the complex will open in August 2017—just in time to welcome arriving ECU students for the Fall Semester. Students will have the choice of 16 floorplans with studios, 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom and 4 bedroom units. Each floor plan will be fully furnished, include private bathrooms and contain upgrades such as granite countertops and plank floors. The housing project will provide a high-tech state-of-the-art security system with cameras, electronic access control and high speed wireless internet.

In addition to the student housing, the tower complex will contain 20,000 square feet of retail space, a 700-car parking deck, courtyards, resort-style pool, outdoor amenity center, state-of-the-art fitness center and a roof-top sky-view terrace. The complex will be located across the street from the recently announced $122 Million ECU Student Union that is scheduled to commence construction Summer 2015. Students also will enjoy the convenience of a short 3 minute walk to the 150,000 square foot Student Recreation Center, Joyner library and the new world-class Student Union.
