Elauwit chosen for three Education Realty student-housing projects
At Elauwit, we pride ourselves on thinking out of the box. Our newspapers, for example, break the mold of what people think of the community newspaper. Shatter it, really. We are just crazy enough to take on the one idea that others may have had, but weren't brave enough to try. Free, weekly newspapers (with actual news) delivered via direct mail are a prime example. The folks at Education Realty (EdR) are no different. The company has pioneered many firsts for their industry, making them the ideal partner for Elauwit.
Which is why the past 30 days have brought us so much satisfaction. Since the start of the year, Elauwit has been chosen as the telecommunications provider for three EdR projects - East Edge in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Campus West in Syracuse, New York; and Pointe West in Cayce, South Carolina.
First, East Edge. EdR and The Edwards Companies are constructing an amenities‐rich collegiate housing community on a 10‐acre site adjacent to the University of Alabama. Situated near the Law School on the east edge of the campus, the community will comprise four multi‐story apartment buildings. Elauwit will provide both the data and video services for the community with a launch date of August.
Campus West, EdR's Phase II Law School Housing at Syracuse University, will set the pace for growth and revitalization in a new part of the campus. This is the second on‐campus collegiate housing complex developed, owned and financed by EDR at Syracuse. The complex is being constructed on the main campus on land leased from the university. Again, Elauwit will provide both the data and video services for the community with a launch date set for August.
Finally, Pointe West which services the colleges and universities in the Columbia, South Carolina area. Elauwit replaced the existing service provider for data/internet during the Christmas holiday, the results of which the students have already said are a vast improvement.
We are thrilled with our new-found relationship with the folks at EdR and look forward to many more partnerships in the future.
