Campus Crest Collaborates with Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore

When Campus Crest acquired an existing property near the OSU campus in Stillwater, OK, the firm knew a major interior renovation would be required to bring the property in line with its existing portfolio.

This presented a new opportunity for collaboration with the local community and Campus Crest Communities, Stillwater Habitat for Humanity, Stillwater Public Schools, Oklahoma State University and North American Van Lines who collaborated to execute the largest donation to date for the Stillwater Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore.

“Reuse of existing furniture and appliances not only reduces demand of virgin material but also provides quality goods at an accessible price point for those who cannot afford to purchase new,” said Ted Rollins, co-founder and CEO of Campus Crest Communities.

Campus Crest launches upscale urban housing concept

As a new method of targeting mature undergrads and grad students, Campus Crest Communities, Inc. has introduced a new brand to strengthen its product offering and growing family of brands: evo™, an upscale urban student housing concept.

Campus Crest, led by Ted W. Rollins, co-Founder and CEO,  will develop dynamic, sophisticated student housing properties in urban settings, and will open its first two Evo properties in the Fall of 2014.

The Grove at Cira Centre South in Philadelphia will be renamed Evo at Cira Centre South. Evo at Cira Centre South will be the tallest student housing property in the country with 33 stories and 850 beds. Evo Montskyline-640x382real is the Company’s first entrance into the international market and will feature 1000+ beds, state of the art study lounges, fitness centers and well-appointed apartment suites.

“We are the pioneers of the hospitality brand model in the student housing industry, and the evo brand is a natural complement to our existing portfolio. The brand solidifies our commitment to evolve student living in urban markets by providing an unmatched living experience with state-of-the-art amenities and conveniences,” said Rollins.

Evo will be joining Campus Crest’s brand portfolio that consists of The Grove and Copper Beech.

The Grove is Campus Crest’s garden-style brand of lifestyle-driven student housing communities, located across the U.S. The Grove communities embrace a flat rate concept with an active residence life that has proven to be very attractive to college students and parents.

Copper Beech is the Company’s townhome community brand, focused on delivering value to upper classman and graduate students looking for a more residential feel and freedom in their college experience. Each Copper Beech community typically features the largest units in the market with one, two, three, and four bedroom townhomes.

The Company’s vertically integrated platform, solid operating strategy, and exceptional talent base will continue to propel all three brands forward.
