This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
Jamie Dunn, Jeff Burningham and Jeff Danley are changing the way BYU single students live. No more mismatched furniture, worn out carpet or lumpy mattresses. Instead, they've created a brand new luxury apartment community, called The Village at South Campus at 600 East and 600 North in Provo.
The Village at South Campus has had a phenomenal response. It's 100 percent leased in the first year! It's designed to be an entire community for the 944 residents with study rooms, an indoor swimming pool and hot tub and an exercise room with the most up-to-date equipment. The lawn common in the middle of the community has already been used to host band performances and a viewing party for the BYU-Utah game just a few weeks ago.
In the center of The Village at South Campus they have the Awful Waffle, a breakfast, lunch and dinner destination for students. It has wood paneling, fire places, a lounge and study area. In addition, all the tables and walls are chalkboards with large sidewalk chalk so you can leave your mark.
Students can stop by to grab a meal or a quick snack between classes. Concerned about health? You can get fresh fruit for less than a dollar, and if you're looking for something sweet, try their selection of gelato. There's also a small c-store for snacks or other small items. Jamie says on the weekends it's crazy with students who are excited to have a brand new place to hang out.
All three owners of the Village at South Campus are all BYU grads, and when the land where the Village is located became available, they knew it was just the right fit for their next investment property. Students living in The Village at South Campus love the classy industrial design style.
The owners of The Village at South Campus are also contributing to Utah's employment base by putting BYU students to work in the office, restaurant and as community advocates, who plan events and assist residents.
For Zions Bank, I'm Chris Redgrave, speaking on business.
