West Edge Student Housing

Construction of a five-story, modern student apartment community totaling 455,461 square feet on a 5.8-acre site. The site elevation is 6,300 feet.

The complex is located directly across the street from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) campus and provides 621 beds in 195 units offering eight different floor plans in studio through six-bedroom apartment suites. The apartment configuration wraps a five-story, 517-space, precast concrete parking garage. The new complex replaces the former Bates Elementary School which was demolished as part of the scope of work.

The community features a best-in-class amenity package including a rooftop sky lounge with views of Pikes Peak, a clubhouse, study rooms, tech center, a heated saltwater pool, landscaped courtyard with sundecks, an outdoor kitchen with grilling stations and multiple outdoor lounges with community fire pits and a state-of-the art fitness lodge with tanning, free weights, cardio equipment, yoga studio, climbing wall and full-size basketball court.
