Last week, members of The Preston Partnership project team for West 22 attended the VIP Grand Opening and ribbon-cutting. West 22 is an incredible off-campus student housing project in Kennesaw developed by South City Partners and managed by Ambling.

This is not your mother’s student housing! Students can choose from cottages, manor houses and luxury flats with features like 42″ HD televisions, gourmet kitchens, stainless appliances and granite counter tops.  

Students can study or socialize in the gorgeous clubhouse with internet cafe & coffee bar, Xbox 360 gaming area, tanning rooms and pool tables. Community amenities include a resort-style zero entry pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, multiple sport courts, gaming areas, and dog park.

A succesful team: South City Partners, Ambling, and The Carlyle Group all look on as the ribbon is cut.

“For many years, we have considered The Preston Partnership one of our preferred design professionals, from the accuracy of their planning and preliminary density studies, through design document production, to coordination with the Owner and Contractor team during construction.  We always look to find more business to do with Preston’s team given our long-standing relationship….we see them as a partner in every project, not just a third party consultant.”
