KWA Construction Breaks Ground on Luxury Housing for University of North Texas Students

KWA Construction broke ground this month on a new five-story, 139-unit luxury student housing project, located on Eagle Drive near the University of North Texas (UNT) in Denton, Texas. Scheduled for completion by July 2013, this student housing complex – 33 Degrees North – takes student housing to a new level … a much more luxurious level. Configured in one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floor plans, each unit includes a private bathroom per each bedroom, queen sized pillow-top beds, granite countertops, clean-steel appliances, and 42-inch flat screen televisions. 33 Degrees North will also include a luxury community space outfitted with a fireplace, café, fitness center, infinity pool, outdoor deck and tanning rooms. Parking will be available in an adjoining five-and-a-half-story parking garage.

“I have to say that I wish they had student housing as robust as 33 Degrees North back when I was in college,” said KWA Construction President Keller Webster. “KWA is extremely excited to be a part of this unique project that includes some outstanding floor plans and features for the future UNT student residents. KWA is grateful that Crosswind Development Partners and Fountain Residential Partners selected our team for the construction, and we look forward to seeing the result of our collaboration. “

The 33 Degrees North project will add 427 beds to UNT’s available student housing. Leasing will begin soon for fall 2013 semester occupancy.
