“From the very beginning I was impressed with how Fountain Residential engaged both my office and the City, and more importantly the community. They addressed our concerns and worked with the community to alleviate any potential future issues as it relates to traffic, pedestrian activity, and even changed the architecture of the building to better fit in with the surrounding single-family homes.“
As part of our commitment to partnering with local entities and landscape preservation, Fountain Residential Partner’s contributed $80,000 to re-plant a 60-year-old Oak tree. The oak tree was re-planted inside the courtyard of Prado Student Living, our 472 bed student community located adjacent to The University of Texas, San Antonio.
Additionally, Fountain Residential Partners contributed $10,000 to preserving a pine tree within the courtyard area of our 687 bed apartment community located adjacent to The University of Texas, Arlington.
UNDERPASS BEAUTIFCATION PROJECT
Fountain Residential Partner’s partnered with the University of Houston, Houston City Council, mayor’s office, county commissioner’s office and TxDOT to create a collaborative mural at the I-45 underpass at Cullen Boulevard. This collaborative effort provided an opportunity for the graphic design students at The University of Houston to design the mural as part of their semester project while beautifying the area. Fountain Residential Partner’s inspired the vision and contributed over $80,000.00 to provide painting supplies and have lights installed in the underpass.
Fountain Residential Partners partnered with the University of Texas, Arlington to develop a program that would help financially challenged students at UTA have a temporary place to call home while they finish school. Fountain Residential Partners dedicated apartment units for students with challenging circumstances who found themselves without a place to call home. With the help of the Department of Student Affairs, The University of Texas, Arlington was able to identify financially challenged students and assign them to one of the dedicated free homes throughout the duration of the academic term.
EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FUNDRAISER
848 Mitchell, a 687 bed student apartment community hosted a fundraiser in conjunction with the University of Texas, Arlington to benefit the student Emergency Assistance Fund. This fund provides funding to currently enrolled students who are struggling, financially, due to uncontrollable circumstance. The purpose of the program is to ensure students who experience a hardship are able to continue studying and attend classes without interruption during a temporary hardship.
