Birmingham, Ala. — The Opus Group, in partnership with The McKinney Fund & Co., has broken ground on a 522-bed student housing community near the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
The 17-story, mixed-use development will offer floor plans ranging from studios to four-bedroom units. Shared amenities will include a fitness center, spa, study rooms and lounges, an outdoor amenity deck with fitness areas, fire pits, a coffee bar, club room, rooftop pool and grilling stations. Myefski Architects designed the community. Auburn, Alabama-based Rabren General Contractors will serve as general contractor, and Creative License International will design the interiors for the project. The community is scheduled to open in fall 2020.
