ATHENS, Ga., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chance Partners, LLC, one of the country's leading and most active student housing development firms, announced today the construction of Eclipse, a 32-unit, 128-bed community in Athens, GA.  The project - scheduled to deliver in July 2013 and located on East Broad Street, less than five blocks from the historic Arch on The University of Georgia campus – will be the first student housing community to deliver in Athens' CBD in many years.

Chance Partners believes now is the ideal time for such a development.  "With an aging downtown inventory, Athens' strong rental and occupancy rates and our competitive rents and preferred location, we feel now is the perfect time to introduce our urban-style student housing concept to the Athens market," said Judd Bobilin, President and CEO of Chance Partners. 

Eclipse will offer loft and townhome style living and will feature some of Athens' best features and amenities, including: on-site parking, a residents-only clubroom with state-of-the-art technology, a lush park with water and fire features, and a fitness center.  Units at Eclipse will be the most high-end in the marketplace.  They will feature private bathrooms for every bedroom; gourmet kitchens featuring imported granite countertops, designer wood cabinetry and stainless steel appliances; full-size washers and dryers; expansive living areas; hardwood-style flooring; walk-in closets and ample storage space. Many units will also offer roll-up doors in the living area, exposed brick accent walls, surround sound and designer lighting.  All units will come furnished with living and bedroom furniture and will include a 42" flat-screen television in the living room.  Rents will start in the $600's per bed, per month and include cable television, high-speed Internet, maintenance, trash and water.

"We believe students want a new, high-quality and amenity-rich community within walking distance of campus and their social centers, and we deliver on that urban experience better than anyone," added Bobilin.
