Juniors and seniors are rushing to lease at the newest apartment complex in the TCU community. The Vue is the latest addition in apartment complexes that will be available to upperclassmen only.
Located right next to Kroger on University Drive, The Vue would provide upperclassmen with the convenience of being off campus and within walking distance from the university. With only 118 suites, the small community is appealing to most students.
Sophomore pre-major Chris Patterson said, “It seems like it’s going to be more up to date, and it’s smaller, so there are not too many people running around.”
Size was not the only attraction for students. The apartments would include amenities such as a rooftop lounge area, a tanning deck and a flat screen TV in almost every room.
Robyn Hoover, community manager for The Vue, said, “It’s going to be a different style of luxury student living right around TCU. It’s a boutique style community, so it’s a much smaller, intimate sized building.”
Every apartment will include washers and dryers, wireless internet, extended cable packages with HD and HBO channels as well as DVR boxes, stainless steel appliances, queen-sized beds and a 42-inch flat screen TV. The Vue will also have a restaurant and pub on the first floor along with a semi-underground, private garage.
With the university’s population increasing, director of Housing & Residence Life Craig Allen said places like The Vue would provide great living spaces for upperclassmen.
Sophomore business major Taylor Stricklin said, “We drove around and looked for a whole bunch of different places and all of them had their ups and downs, but this one was the only one that offered basically everything but electricity, so that was awesome. Plus, the 42-inch TV, can’t go wrong with that.”
Allen said The Vue will not be an on-campus option for students and would be featured at one of its three off campus fairs which begin Feb. 2. Construction for The Vue is not set to finish until June, but more than 58 percent of the leases have already been signed.
Hoover said they have sold out four and one bedroom apartments, but several three and two bedroom apartments were still available. Students would be able to move in Aug. 11.
