TUSCALOOSA, Ala., May 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 5, 2011, the team from Sterling Crimson delivered a ten-thousand-dollar ($10,000) check to Terry Waters, Executive Director of The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama, for the Tuscaloosa Disaster Relief Fund. Located just blocks from campus and less than 100 yards from the path of the deadly tornado, Sterling Crimson suffered little to no damage on that fateful day of April 27, 2011.
"We had to do something for Tuscaloosa," stated Regional Supervisor Pam West, who personally travelled from Houston, Texas to deliver the funds. "When disaster strikes in any community, it's devastating, but nothing could prepare me for the moment I saw Tuscaloosa again." Overcome with emotion, Terry Waters accepted the heartfelt donation and shared how important this gesture is to the City.
With formal occupancy scheduled for August of 2011, Sterling Crimson has opened their doors to early move-ins along with accommodations for storage for University of Alabama students who have had to make alternative living arrangements.
When complete, the community will consist of 316 units and feature high-end amenities including 42" flat-screen televisions in every living area, Free Shuttle Service to/from UA and local hotspots, and multifunctional social lounge showcasing the latest in Apple and PC computers. As with other Sterling communities, Sterling Crimson offers individual by-the-bed leases with a sophisticated roommate matching program available.
