TUSCALOOSA, AL – Spaces Management announced the opening of The Walk Tuscaloosa, a new student housing community at the University of Alabama. The Walk was developed in collaboration between Spaces and Elite Building, with Elite managing and operating the property as the general contractor and Spaces. The project was designed by Poole & Company with Southpark Interiors and Function First Furniture for the interior.
The newly constructed building opened its doors to residents on time and to mostly positive reviews. The community is right across from Tutwiler Hall, one block from Sorority Row, Starbucks on Campus, and Bryant Denny Stadium. The four-story building houses 87 residential units with 251 bedrooms.
"We couldn't be happier with the finished product," says Andy Turner, CEO of Spaces Management. “Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19, our partner Elite did an excellent job of meeting the construction time of just 14 months. It was particularly rewarding to hear the positive feedback from parents and students about the property and the high level of customer service at the Spaces -Employees on the move-in day when we greeted them in their new home. "
The community offers parity between bedroom and bathroom as well as 100% secure parking for tenants in a parking garage below the building. Units come fully furnished with quartz countertops, tile floors in bathrooms, walk-in showers, luxurious vinyl plank wood grain, and stainless steel appliances.
Shared amenities include three fitness areas, private and group work areas with 70-inch touchscreen TVs, café and lounge areas, solarium, courtyards with gas grills, a fire pit, hammocks and outdoor study areas. The pool and sundeck overlook a 13-foot LED wall. For additional security, access control to the building allows a resident's mobile phone to act as a key.
