Savannah, Ga. — CampusWorks has awarded Greystar Student Living the management of The Blake, a new student housing community under development in Savannah. The 270-bed development will include underground parking and first-floor retail space.
The Blake will be developed on a 1.12-acre site close to the historic downtown and less than a mile away from Savannah College of Art and Design. The community will offer one- to five-bedroom floor plans ranging in size from 600 to 1,986 square feet. Floor plans will be fully furnished and include 42-inch cabinets with granite countertops, wood style plank flooring, designer lighting and upgraded fixtures. Apartments will incorporate features such as kitchen pantries, private bathrooms with every suite, walk-in closets, washers and dryers in each unit, and nine- to 10- foot ceilings.
Community amenities will include a clubhouse with a reception lobby, studio space, a fitness center and tanning beds. Complimentary Wi-Fi will be available throughout the property and study lounges will be situated on each floor. Residents have access to the rooftop lounge or one of two courtyards featuring a resort-style swimming pool surrounded by a 5,000-square-foot terrace, private cabanas, DJ booth, grilling stations and fire pits. The secured access community will offer a cycle center as well as on-site bicycle storage.
The Blake is a joint-venture partnership with Kaplan Residential and The McKinney Fund & Co. Construction is expected to be completed by fall 2016.
