The Gather on Southern Avenue held a grand opening event on Wednesday, March 5.
The new student apartment complex, located at 3655 Southern Ave., hosted the event for students to come and view the amenities that will be offered.
Although The Gather is located in the University District and just across the railroad tracks from the University of Memphis, the apartment complex will lease units for students at different colleges and universities.
“We cater to all students,” said property manager Whitley Yates. “There will be Victory University students, as well as Rhodes College.”
Students will have opportunity to experience apartment style living while being close to campus.
Students will pick from three different floor plans, making it much different than on-campus housing.
“I think the biggest thing for students is privacy and independence,” Yates said. “It’s like being free and having a taste of the real world.
