Opus & McKinney Develop Luxury Student Living at KU
With limited student living options near the University of Kansas, Opus leveraged its student living expertise by developing, designing and building a highly-amenitized, luxury building near the campus in Lawrence, Kansas.
The three-story building features 312 beds, 8,200 square feet of ground level retail space and high-quality amenities including:
- pool, fire pits, gas grills and a large fitness area outside
- a club room and game room
- private and group study rooms
- a dedicated podcasting booth.
This development, which is a joint venture partnership with The McKinney Fund, is Opus' first student development in Kansas and will serve as a catalyst for further redevelopment of the 23rd Street Commercial Corridor. Construction was completed in August 2020 in time for the fall 2020 academic semester.
