Project Timeline: September 2018 – August 2020
General Contractor: FaverGray
Architect: Forum Architecture
The Union on Fletcher project is a student housing community conveniently located across the street from the University of South Florida.
FaverGray is pleased to bring this project to Tampa along with its partners Greystar, the global leader in rental housing, and Forum Architecture. FaverGray is a premier student housing general contractor and has collaborated on this project with Forum Architecture and Greystar to create a luxury living experience for student residents.
The 4.7-acre community consists of 217 units with 640 bedrooms and bathrooms in one 5-story apartment building. The exterior cladding consists of a combination of stucco, brick veneer and cement siding.
The development includes a community center, two courtyards and one precast parking garage.
Amenities include a clubhouse, swimming pool, dog run and washing station, coffee bar, outdoor patio, fire pit with outdoor seating, grilling station, study rooms, fitness center, and package room with smart technology.
The field team had deep experience and dedicated leadership.FaverGray was the selected general contractor on a recent student housing bidproject designed by our firm, Coursey Architects, in Gainesville, FL; the projectdelivery date was met for the fall of 2019, (to the Owner’s satisfaction and the newtenants’ great enjoyment), as was required by the Owner, due to the diligence ofthe FaverGray team from top to bottom. The field team had deep experience anddedicated leadership, and was well supported by the project management team, backoffice and company leadership team across the board. This was a complex 3-buildingproject, on 3 separate sites in the city, so it was really like managing 3 projects atonce; each site had its own challenges and opportunities, and FaverGray managedthese all very well.
Easlan Capital of Atlanta and its affiliate Parkside Equities have been developing mixed use and multifamily properties throughout the southeast since 1982. It is with great pleasure that we have been successful in awarding the last three projects, consisting of 810 units to FaverGray. All three were completed on time and within budget. Parkside at the Beach was actually ahead of schedule and after a record lease-up, the property was sold within 36 months of construction start. I would therefore highly recommend them…as we look forward to a continuance of our relationship in the future.
Our relationship with FaverGray has been more than successful. FaverGray is unique in that they combine the expertise and sophistication of a larger firm with a level of service and attentiveness of a smaller firm. These characteristics are exactly what we need and the projects have been delivered on budget, on schedule.
The FaverGray team is a trusted partner with American Campus Communities. They bring great value as an active participant during initial design and predevelopment activities through pricing, and in the field during construction. Jim and Keith have assembled a core team of leaders with impressive depth and experience, and they demonstrate their commitment to service and integrity every day at every level. We look forward to a long and productive relationship with FaverGray.
The FaverGray team functions as an extension of our staff and provides front end services of great value. They are virtually a completely integrated partner from beginning to end.
Gary B. Coursey, Architects has been successfully producing multi-family projects for 50 years. We have worked alongside FaverGray for many years on many projects. We find them to be efficient, thorough and highly professional. Parkside at the Beach is one of our favorite projects we designed, and FaverGray built; luxurious design, built solid, and was sold for a large profit after a year of successful occupancy. We are pleased to work with them and will continue to refer them on projects we are producing.
