Will Rambler Deliver on Time?

By David Kanne

Will Rambler be ready for move in by Fall 2023?

Recent late deliveries in West Campus left a bad taste in some students’ mouths about signing a lease at a new student housing development.

Nobody wants to move into an unfinished building, and nobody wants to worry about the trouble it would cause for moving and storage, among other things, if this were to happen. 

To provide peace of mind, we are going to answer your most urgent questions and share three reasons why you should feel confident in signing a lease at Rambler.

Is Rambler on schedule to deliver on time?

Not only is Rambler scheduled to deliver on time, but construction is ahead of schedule.

Construction began on Rambler in June 2021 and hasn’t faced any delays since starting.

The building will be topped out by December 2022, have the first units completed in the beginning of March 2023 and will be ready in plenty of time for an August 2023 move in. 

Who is developing Rambler, and have they delivered any other buildings late in the past? 

LV Collective is the real estate development firm behind Rambler. LV is a nationally recognized student housing developer focused on designing and curating high-quality real estate in superior locations throughout the United States. LV Collective currently has 4,000+ beds under construction across seven student housing developments in six markets. 

LV Collective has never delivered a project late, and are confident that Rambler will keep this streak alive.

Rambler’s general contractor, Rabren General Contractors (RGC), also has a strong track record with on-time deliveries and is scheduled to deliver Rambler by the summer of 2023. Since 2017, RGC has delivered seven student housing projects across the southeast totaling 2.4 million square feet, 2,950 beds, and over $300 million in total construction value. This includes the 17-story Five Points South in Birmingham, AL, and most recently the 12-story Ascend in Richmond, VA. All projects were delivered on-time.

So the building will be ready, but will the furniture be there? And will everything be working properly?

It is one thing for a building to be finished, but without furniture, there isn’t much use to it being done on time.

We understand that some furniture suppliers have experienced delays due to COVID-related issues. Because of this, we have taken an extra step to assure that all furniture will be installed by the time of move-in.

To ensure that all furniture will be installed by the move-in date of August 18th, we have proactively shipped all unit and common area furniture to a warehouse in the U.S. to avoid complications with international shipping. This way, the furniture will be available ahead of schedule, giving our team plenty of time to install your furniture and properly clean your space.

What if the project doesn’t deliver on time?

We are so confident that Rambler will deliver on time that we are offering anyone who signs a lease a Move-in Guarantee.

While unlikely, the purpose of the Move-in Guarantee is to address the issue of a delay in occupancy stemming from construction.

Put simply, if for some reason we don’t hit our mark, we will not charge you rent for the time you cannot live at Rambler. We will also cover agreed upon daily hotel costs, extra moving costs, and storage costs.

We hope this article helped address any concerns you may have about the delivery of Rambler.
