Wilmington, North Carolina

HighBridge Properties helped develop this 168-unit student-housing community with 528 bedroom/bathroom suites near the University of North Carolina Wilmington in Wilmington, N.C., as a partner in the Progress Student Living joint venture. We played a lead role in acquiring the site, securing entitlements, working with local government agencies and community leaders to build support for the project, and ensuring that construction was completed on time and on budget.

Progress910 consists of three four-story residential buildings located on a 16-acre site approximately one mile west of the main entrance to the UNCW campus. It is the only off-campus student-housing community in Wilmington with four-bedroom apartment suites. Apartments are also available in two- and three-bedroom-suite floor plans. Among the property’s amenities are an outdoor, resort-style pool with poolside cabanas; a 24-hour, state-of-the art fitness center; an activity room with a fireplace, lounge areas, and billiards and ping-pong tables; and a secluded cybercafé and study lounge. Units are fully furnished and include 40-inch, flat-screen televisions; high-speed Internet connections; walk-in closets; full-size washers and dryers; sound-insulated walls; and private patios or balconies.
