Dallas, Texas — The new development, Legends Russellville, will be located adjacent to the main Arkansas Tech University (ATU) campus with walking trail access and will consist of three-story buildings with enclosed corridors. The new Domus Student Living project will have 519 total beds consisting of fully furnished one bedroom, two bedroom, and four bedroom units with granite countertops, private bathrooms and individual leases. As with all Domus Student Living developments, the new Legends Russellville project will offer a contemporary luxury design. The project is close to historic downtown Russellville and the entertainment district.
Founded in 2010, Domus has created unique luxury student housing projects in secondary and tertiary markets across the United States totaling $185M+ with over 4,000 beds. The Domus tagline, “Strive higher” sums up the company’s mission to continually raise the bar from development, to property management, to community stewardship. Domus Property Management and Domus Development Divisions work together seamlessly with a focus on select secondary and tertiary student housing markets where they deliver high-end contemporary, amenity-rich student housing communities that enhance the university experience.
As leaders in the second and tertiary market student housing space, Domus creates custom developments that suit students, parents, universities and the communities at large. Each Domus Student Living community has a unique personality and story that brings out school spirit and highlights the larger community.
Legends Russellville will feature a freestanding clubhouse that will contain the leasing/management office as well as having multiple gathering spaces for residents including game rooms, lounges, computer labs and a state-of-the-art fitness center. A resort-style salt-water pool, sand volleyball, a pickleball court, a disc golf course and two dog parks with watering stations round out the community amenities.
For those unfamiliar with pickleball, according to Wikipedia, it is a sport that started back in the 1960’s and has become one of America’s most popular sports for all ages. It combines, tennis, badminton and table tennis sharing the dimensions of a badminton court, features of other racquet-type sports and the rules and a net similar to tennis.1
“In our communities, we strive to provide the best amenities in a fresh, contemporary, fun atmosphere that supports higher learning and the development of our next generation of leaders. We look for opportunities to build “community” not just build buildings. We create experiences and memories that are cherished for lifetimes. We are often invited back to a community to consider additional developments. We consider this a high compliment as well as an honor,” says Domus Founder and President of Development for Domus Student Living, Eric Jakimier.
Growing enrollment at ATU, along with the need for housing due to older dorms and lack of modern highly-amenitized, purpose-built student housing drew Domus to the area.
“Community means everything to us. We care about community on both micro and macro levels. We don’t simply build the same project over and over. Rather, we add value to each individual community and the community at large in each market that we choose to invest. We love creating beautifully designed, beautifully managed student living communities. We love what we do and students love to live in what we do,” said Marc Sullivan, President of Domus Student Living.
Headquartered in Dallas Texas, Domus Student Living offers real estate development, construction and property management with a multifamily student housing focus featuring luxury, contemporary architecture in secondary and tertiary markets. Legends Russellville is the ninth student housing development in the Domus Student Living portfolio.
