Fort Lauderdale, Fla.— Construction has commenced on a 608-bed, mixed-use development by RISE: A Real Estate Company on the Nova Southeastern University campus in Fort Lauderdale.
The 310,000-square-foot property will offer 280 units for upperclassmen at the site of the university’s former intramural soccer field. The community will consist of one-, two- and four-bedroom student apartments with full kitchens and in-unit washers and dryers. Each floor will include lounges and study rooms offering a mix of open and semi-private space for resident interaction. The property will also feature an on-site innovation center, which will serve as a business incubator for students, and outdoor amenities including hammocks, table tennis and barbecue grills. Juneau Construction Company is the project’s general contractor and Niles Bolton Associates is the architect. The community is set to open in summer 2019.
