The Opus Group, in partnership with The McKinney Fund & Company, started construction on a new 17-story, mixed-use student living community on the edge of the University of Alabama at Birmingham campus. The building will include 199 residential units accommodating 522 residents, and is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2020.
Located near downtown, in the Five Points South neighborhood at the corner of 20th Street S. and 10th Ave., the development will be built on the former “The Break” site.
Opus’ Ben Angelo says, “With assistance from Herschell Hamilton of Birmingham-based Bloc Global, this location was strategically selected as it is an easy, walkable distance to campus and close proximity to all of the great retail, dining and entertainment options in the neighborhood.”
Ranging from junior studios to four-bedrooms, the units will feature full-size stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, simulated wood flooring in the common spaces, and in-unit washers and dryers.
