Student Housing Leader Adds 488 Beds Near Western Michigan University

 

AUSTIN, TX (April 9, 2019) — Campus Advantage®, an industry leader in student housing property management, consulting, and investment management, today announced it has assumed management of 700 SoHo, a Kalamazoo, Michigan student housing property located near Western Michigan University (WMU).

Built in 2001, 700 SoHo is a 122-unit, 484-bed garden-style community featuring large two-bedroom and four-bedroom units. On-site amenities include a social lounge, clubhouse, pool, hot tub, coffee and tea bar, and sundeck. Located only steps from WMU, the property benefits from a prime location in proximity to campus and the students’ preferred hangout spots. The property is currently undergoing substantial unit renovations which include new flooring and appliances, updated countertops, new cabinets, and updated finishes throughout each unit. Renovations are anticipated to be completed in Fall 2019.

Campus Advantage was chosen to manage 700 SoHo because of the team’s prior success with renovating another community within the Kalamazoo market, and Campus Advantage’s industry leading Students First® residence life program that will positively impact renewals and the student experience.

“We are thrilled to expand our footprint in Kalamazoo and to bring our value-add, branding and property management expertise, as well as our exceptional operations team and training programs, to 700 SoHo,” said Madison Meier, Vice President at Campus Advantage. “We look forward to enhancing the overall living experience for the property’s current and future residents and to helping the property continue to compete in, and maintain, its strong performance in the Kalamazoo market.”

Under Campus Advantage management, 700 SoHo will benefit from community-focused programs and experiences that inspire and equip residents to thrive in all areas of life. This includes the company’s highly regarded Students First® Experience platform, which is designed to ensure that residents who choose to live at Campus Advantage communities have more opportunities to achieve success both now and in the future.
