In case you missed it, Campus Advantage’s Executive Vice President of Development, David Pierce, was recently featured in the Knoxville News Sentinel discussing The Knox development.
[The Knox] was developed by partner companies Campus Advantage, an Austin, Texas-based firm that manages over 30,000 student beds in 23 states, and real estate investment company Pinecrest.
“We do this in major markets all over the country,” said David Pierce, executive vice president of development for Campus Advantage. “Twenty years ago there was a gap from when you were on campus to when you left. You immediately had 19- and 20-year-old students having to make their way in an apartment. They had to furnish it, pay all the bills, do everything themselves. This provides kind of a transition to the true independent living you get when you graduate.”
