Full Circle Townhomes
Full Circle Townhomes thinks green, saves students money
Full Circle Townhomes doesn’t just think green when it comes to saving on rent money, they’re also LEED certified and Energy Star efficient.
Along with competitively priced rent per bedroom – $550 for two-bedroom, $470 for three-bedroom and $445 for four-bedroom – Full Circle Townhomes is running a special one month free deal until Dec. 31. But owner-manager Darcie Whiddon said they don’t have many units left, and suggests that interested students sign a lease soon.
“By leasing now, each student will get one month’s rent for free,” Whiddon said. “That’s a savings of up to $1,780.”
But the energy efficient status can also save tenants hundreds of dollars on utility costs, too.
“It’s all about being green and conscious of the impacts we have on the environment,”
Full Circle Townhomes estimates savings of more than $800 annually for each tenant, which is almost half off of what other complexes around Grand Valley State University’s Allendale Campus pay.
“It’s a great place for students to live because it gives students the opportunity to make a positive impact on the environment,” Whiddon said. “By living at Full Circle, the tenants will breathe healthier air; they’ll save thousands of gallons of fresh water; and they save hundreds of dollars on utilities.”
The eight available units come in two, three, or four-bedroom options and each unit is built with green-focused materials including “Green Wood” floors, “Green Label Plus” carpet made from recycled materials and dual flushing toilets.
The “green philosophy” is just one aspect that drew GVSU student and resident Chelsie Hernandez to Full Circle Townhomes.
“Everything you would expect to have in a home is included in Full Circle Townhomes,” Hernandez said. “For example there is a washer, dryer, and dishwasher in each unit, plus each bedroom has its own personal bathroom.”
The spacious bedrooms, personal bathrooms and overall look of the townhomes were also a big aspect for Hernandez
“Student’s should consider living at Full Circle Townhomes because the bedrooms are spacious enough to not only just fit a bed, TV, etc., but also everything else a successful college student would need, like a desk, and still live comfortably,” she said.
With a location right on Lake Michigan Dr., Full Circle Townhomes is within walking distance of campus. And during the winter, the Rapid Route 37 bus stop is only about 100 feet from the units.
“The location is perfect, it’s close to campus so it’s convenient, but it’s secluded enough to where you are able to get a homey and relaxed atmosphere,” Hernandez said.
The location isn’t the only thing that helps with a quieter atmosphere, though. The walls were built with sound barriers so neighbor noises will never be a problem.
Included in the monthly rent is high speed internet, cable, parking, water, snow removal, recycling and trash – just another way Full Circle Townhomes is trying to save tenants money. And the free, assigned parking spaces insure tenants always have somewhere to park by their unit.
With a think-green focus and a great location, Hernandez said it was an easy choice to make, and it only helped that the staff is understanding and willing to help students, unlike some larger complexes, she said.
“I’ve heard horror stories from other students on campus about awful landlord’s and staff that they have had to deal with in situations where they live, Full Circle is not like that at all,” Hernandez said. “Full Circle Townhome’s staff are all people whom are super friendly, easy to get along with and truly care about you.”
