Student housing building to open in fall near Ravenel Bridge

A new student housing building rising at the base of the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston will open this fall.

For months now, passersby on the Ravenel Bridge watched the wooden framework take form for new housing.

By this fall, a 430-bed apartment building will open to serve off-campus students at the College of Charleston.

Called 930 NoMo, the $35 million project by Charlotte-based CampusWorks Development and other partners, will sit at 930 Morrison Drive. Construction will wrap up this summer.

It will include 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.

“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, and we are excited to serve the off-campus student population at the College of Charleston.”

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

Floor plans include two-, three- and four-bedroom options. Individual 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 for rooms in a four-bedroom suite will start at $899 per person. Those in three-bedroom units will pay $939 each, and two-bedroom units will start at $979 a person. Prices can be higher depending on the options of waterfront or pool views, top floor, vaulted ceiling, larger closets or first-floor patio.

Asset Campus Housing, the largest management and privately held student-housing company in the U.S., will manage the property.

“We are very excited to partner with CampusWorks to manage the successful lease-up of 930 NoMo,” said Joe Goodwin, senior vice president of marketing for Asset Campus Housing. “We look forward to helping bring this community to life in Charleston and to foster a fun and interactive environment that promotes success for every resident.”

CampusWorks’ other partners include Kayne Anderson Real Estate Advisors and Kaplan Residential.
