Students and young professionals alike will enjoy the downtown life
To truly be a hip, young adult living in Chattanooga, one must actually live in Chattanooga—Downtown, that is. Downtown is the beating heart of our thriving city and for those of us making the transition between young adulthood and adulthood, being a part of that rhythmic beat calls to us.
If you haven’t noticed, new properties have been sprouting up around the edges of UTC’s campus and Downtown. Straddling the line between dorm life and downtown living, Walk2Campus is the perfect apartment alternative to living in a dorm. The freedom to live as you please—quietly and respectfully of course, because you will have neighbors—without an RA looming over you, and incredibly quick access to both campus amenities as well as Downtown Chatt? Yes, please.
Walk2Campus doesn’t just appeal to students of UTC, but also to young professionals looking for that connection to downtown life. “We span the professional and student market for young renters,” says Roe Elam, Walk2Campus’ development manager. “Vine Street is essentially a hub to downtown, which is why we like being a part of the area.”
One of Walk2Campus’ newest properties—Vue on 5th— isn’t actually on Vine Street, but high above it. At the corner of 5th and Lindsey Street, the apartments have views of the city that are worthy of the name. And yet, still steps from to restaurants like Jefferson’s, Universal Joint, Flatiron Deli, and shopping at Off the Rack, the journey is a whole lot easier on your feet, and on the environment by biking or walking.
So wear those heels, ladies! You have nothing to fear thanks to the less than two block walk. Consider it a pre-workout if you’re headed to the Arc, or a nice brain stimulating session on your way to the library.
“Walkability is the whole point of these properties,” says Elam. “We want people to really be a part of this neighborhood—take advantage of the area.” Having the ability to leave your apartment and arrive at any campus building within in minutes as well as reach various restaurants in the same amount of time sounds like a pretty sweet deal for those of us who need a mix between work and play.
Whether you’re the type that loves their solitude or you’re a roommate kind of person, Vue on 5th offers studio, one bedroom and two bedroom units. Each apartment comes equipped with a full kitchen, a standard size refrigerator, a range stove, microwave, and a washer and dryer in the unit.
Yes, that’s right, no more dragging your laundry down the hall to the communal washers and dryers! Put your laundry on the road to clean and kick back just feet from the washer in the comfort of your living room. This is how clothes washing was meant to be.
Surely, you’re thinking we’ve reached the end of the list of groovy aspects for the Vue on 5th …not quite! While you’re feeling good from all that welcome exercise, the building also features a wide variety of green living elements—from all EnergyStar appliances, bike storage, and LED lighting to low-flow plumbing and high quality HVACs. You can sleep soundly knowing you’re doing your part to help the environment every time you pay your rent.
Walk2Campus is giving students and young professionals the opportunity to take a step into freedom, from student life into professional life, while keeping you a few steps from the action. You were going downtown tonight anyway, right? Well now you don’t have to find parking.
Just walk on over.
Providing students and young professionals with unique housing options close enough to campus and downtown to walk, saving money and time.
