Not your parents’ student housing

A rendering shows what 930 NoMo will look like when completed. The development is at 930 Morrison Drive on the Charleston peninsula, next to the Ravenel Bridge’s East Bay Street off-ramp.

For months now, passers-by on the Ravenel Bridge have watched the wooden framework take form for a new housing project.

By this fall, a $35 million 430-bed apartment building at 930 Morrison Drive will open to serve off-campus students, mainly from the College of Charleston.

It’s quite an upgrade from a college dorm room.

With waterfront views and community balconies, 930 NoMo’s amenities will include a tanning salon, regulation-size bocce ball court, water basketball and volleyball, cycle center and club-level fitness center. Residents will have around-the-clock access to the cyber cafe, study lounges on every floor, bike storage and recycling center.

Also on tap are a 9,000- square-foot terrace with a pool, cabanas, DJ booth and grilling stations, as well as a 6,500-square-foot clubhouse with covered outdoor patio, rooftop lounge and combination music studio and soundproof band room.

930 NoMo also will feature blue-light emergency phones, gated parking with secured access, elevator unit access, on-site security cameras and a community shuttle to the college campus.

Construction on the project by Charlotte-based CampusWorks Development and other partners is expected to wrap up this summer.

“We hope to raise the bar for student living on the peninsula,” said Steve Helfrich, vice president of business development at CampusWorks. “We are confident that 930 NoMo will be a first-class living destination for students.”

“It will be a type of community that has never been seen on the peninsula before,” he added.

Floor plans show two- to four-bedroom options. The apartments will be fully furnished and include washer and dryer, appliances, granite countertops and electronic unit entry locks. Each suite will have a private bathroom.

The property will be equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi and have on-site maintenance and management.

Prices per month for rooms in a four-bedroom suite will start at $899 per person. Three-bedroom units will fetch $939, and two-bedroom units will start at $979 a person. Prices can be higher depending on the views and other factors.

Asset Campus Housing, a big manager of privately owned student housing developments, will run the property. CampusWorks’ other partners include Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors and Kaplan Residential.
