UCF Starts Renting Units at the $55M NorthView Student Housing Project
By Georgiana Mihaila, Associate Editor
With opening set for Fall 2013, UCF Housing and Residence Life is now taking applications to rent units in the $55 million NorthView student housing project. Currently under development just across McCulloch Rd. from the UCF campus and Bright House Networks Stadium, the apartments are being developed by Alan Ginsburg and designed by Orlando-based Cuhaci & Peterson Architects LLC and Finfrock.
“UCF Housing has been chosen as the manager because we provide a seamless connection to university resources, such as academic advising and campus events, as well as systems like myUCF, which allows students to easily apply and pay for housing with scholarships, grants, and loans,” said Jimmy Moore, assistant director for UCF Housing and Residence Life.
The 600-bed NorthView project offers several floor plans, including two-bedroom, two-bath; four-bedroom, four-bath; and four-bed, four-bath lofts, which will have living rooms on both levels. The apartments will be fully furnished with modern appliances and furniture with upscale finishes. Electricity, high-speed wireless internet, cable TV, water and parking will be included in the rental rate with no caps on energy usage.
NorthView amenities include a 43,800-square-foot community recreation center, a 618-space dedicated parking garage, a rooftop sky deck, fitness center, game room, resort style pool, and flat-screen televisions in each apartment.
NorthView will be built among two faith centers for community gatherings and student resources. One is currently dedicated to Hillel, the Jewish student organization. The affiliation of the other facility has not yet been decided.
According to an official UCF announcement, students who apply by the Feb. 1 priority deadline will be invited to attend an exclusive room sign-up event where they will be able to select the unit in which they will live. Rents start at $3,686 for a single bedroom in a four-bedroom / four-bathroom unit.
