“Within easy walking distance of campus, Deacon Place will help Wake Forest meet the demand for more on-campus student housing,” said McGalliard. “We are dedicated to offering the highest-quality residential experience and are pleased to add more apartment-style housing that is both convenient and designed with students in mind.”
Wake Forest purchased the 146,448 square-foot property on the 11-acre site from Deacon Place LLC. Deacon Place was built in 2017.
The housing complex can accommodate 328 students in 10 buildings with both one-level and townhome-style units. Each unit includes bedrooms with private bathrooms, a living room and a kitchen. Units range from 1,500 to 1,800 square feet and are fully furnished. Deacon Place also has a clubhouse with a study room and fitness center, as well as open outdoor spaces. Current leases will be honored and current residents will continue to live at Deacon Place for the duration of their leases.
