Landmark, Stonegate and Harrison Street to Develop Student Housing at Appalachian State University


ATHENS, GA. February 9, 2015—Landmark Properties recently broke ground on The Standard at Boone; 

a 561 bed, mixed-use student housing with approximately 12,600 square feet of retail space. The Standard will be the only luxury student housing within walking distance to Appalachian State University. The project, a joint venture with Harrison Street Real Estate Capital, LLC, and Stonegate Developers, LLC, has commenced construction with delivery scheduled for Fall of 2016.


Located on Blowing Rock Road, the project is the redevelopment of a condemned hotel and apartment property and will remediate several environmental issues as well as re-creating a certified trout stream.  The Standard at Boone is the cornerstone of Boone’s 2030 Land Use Plan for the downtown.  Located between ASU’s Panhellenic Hall and campus, The Standard at Boone is steps from the Holmes Convocation Center and walking distance to popular restaurants, shops and local nightlife. The Standard will feature six fully-furnished floorplans with studio, one, two, three and four bedroom units.


In addition to first class apartment features, residents can also take advantage of Landmark’s award-winning amenity package. The community will offer on-site management, a courtyard Jacuzzi and infinity spa, resident centers with 24-hour study lounges, a rock climbing and bouldering area, tanning beds, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility. Residents will enjoy the unique covered bridge and walking path along Boone Creek, a certified trout stream.  Covered parking will be available for purchase as part of the residential lease package.  There will be national brand restaurants and retail shops in the project, as well.


Landmark Properties continues to develop both “The Retreat” branded cottage-style developments and “The Standard” branded infill developments in college markets nationwide. The company has over 5,000 beds currently under construction in Louisiana, Missouri, Oregon, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia as well as an additional 13,000+ beds in the development pipeline.
