Opus Brings Luxury Student Housing to Iowa State

After expanding its student housing portfolio in campus neighborhoods in Minneapolis, Milwaukee and Madison, Wisc., Opus added to that list with the development of The Foundry – a luxury apartment complex with a premium location just steps away from Iowa State University’s Ames campus.

The six-story, mixed-use building features 7,500 square feet of ground-level retail with tenants such as Starbucks and Barefoot Campus Outfitter and an additional 1,936 square feet available for lease. These retailers not only enhance the living experience for residents, but they also provide additional enhanced options to the surrounding community.

In its 53 units The Foundry has 144 beds in two- and four-bedroom unit configurations. The units were 100% leased before opening in fall 2015. Additionally, the building is designed for convenience with high-quality amenities, including:

  • a large fitness center,
  • study lounges,
  • game room and
  • private underground parking.

The completion of The Foundry is a continuation of Opus’ strong expertise in the student housing sector across the Midwest.
