Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. ("JLL") is pleased to present Evolve Tuscaloosa (the "Property" ), a 228-unit / 628-bed student housing community located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Recently built in 2017, the Property offers a comprehensive amenity package tailored to the modern-day student. The Property contains a mix of 2-bed and 3-bed floorplans complete with 100% bed-bath parity.
Evolve Tuscaloosa serves the University of Alabama (the "University" or "UA"), Alabama’s flagship University. The University is currently experiencing a major bounce back from Covid-19 declines and is now poised for future growth. Total enrollment at the University reached an all-time high of 38,645 students in Fall 2022. A large portion of this growth can be attributed to the 8,037 first-year students, climbing 6% from the prior year.
The Tuscaloosa purpose-built student housing market is reaping the benefits of recent enrollment growth. The market is currently 79% pre-leased as of May 2023, which is 9% ahead of where it was a year ago while achieving high single-digit rent growth.
Evolve Tuscaloosa is poised to continue to grow upon its 23- 24 AY leasing performance. New ownership has the unique opportunity to capitalize on a well located value-add student housing property in a Tier-1 market at a major discount to replacement cost today.
