New U Of A Student Apartment Complex Set To Open


Are you ready for more student apartments? Well, here they come!

The Harbor On Sixth, is set to open next month. The complex, which was first proposed back in 2013, is a 628-bed student housing development, which sits along the banks of the Black Warrior River, and less than 2 miles from campus.

According to their builders, CA Ventures, the complex is more than 75 percent pre-leased ahead of its slated opening. They report that the project has cost in the neighborhood of 30 Million Dollars.

The apartments are located at 680 Sixth Ave. NE, and as part of the approval of the apartments being built, the initial developers were required to build an upgraded ramp leading from McFarland Boulevard to Jack Warner Parkway, to allow better access for the residents of the complex from McFarland Boulevard, and to avoid further traffic congestion at that intersection.

Personally, instead of having more student apartments built, seeing that there’s an over abundance of those already, I would’ve preferred to have something built that this town DOESN’T currently have…….like a LONG JOHN SILVER’S!
