Downtown Residences Prepare for Celebratory Move-in Day
Regent Student Living properties set to welcome over 400 students on September 5th
Niagara Region, August 30, 2016 – The Penn Terra Group is preparing to welcome over 460 students to their downtown St. Catharines Regent Student Living properties during a celebratory Move-In Day on September 5th. After being announced last autumn, leases for the modern accommodations at 51 Lake Street and 136 James Street were scooped up quickly by Brock University and Niagara College students for the 2016 academic year.
With many mature, driven students including student entrepreneurs, athletes, and future medical professionals moving into the properties, the team at Penn Terra Group is excited for the influx of new residents to the downtown core, and for the energy they will bring to the area. "We are very proud to contribute to the betterment of our city in the rejuvenation of this area. We believe that both Regent at James and Regent at Lake bring a new sense of pride and vibrancy to the downtown of St. Catharines,” says Vince Wilson, Penn Terra Group’s Vice President of Business Development. Wilson adds, “This has already been reflected in property values surrounding these residences, and we hope to be able to make announcements concerning additional developments from Penn Terra in the near future.”
With over 460 beds housed in 120 units, the Regent properties offer several layout options, with the choice of 3, 4, or 5-bedroom units. To ensure comfort and convenience, each unit is specifically planned to accommodate a custom-designed kitchen with stainless steel appliances, engineered hardwood floors and in-suite laundry. In all units, students will find high quality and durable furniture sourced through Canadian-based retailer Mobilia.
Regent offers a safe and exclusive environment in which to live. A 24-hour surveillance camera system is placed on all levels to ensure the safety and security of the residence. Regent is designed with premiere technological advances with wireless Internet throughout, as well as secure and convenient key fobs. Students will have a number of on site amenities, including an in-house athletic facility, quiet and comfortable study rooms and a spacious shared lounge for socializing – complete with Starbucks Coffee.
Conveniently located in the vibrant community of downtown St. Catharines, the Regent properties are a 5-minute walk to supermarkets, cafes, fine dining, exciting nightlife, banks and the performing arts center. For easy accessibility, underground parking and bike storage rooms are available. In addition, regular transportation (St. Catharines Transit) stops adjacent to the Regent properties, which makes for an easy commute to and from campus.
