Daily Herald: University Place announces completion of unique apartment complexes

If you have dreamed of an apartment with wrap-around balconies and a Park Place Avenue address, look no further than The Exton apartments at University Place.

University Place announced Monday the completion of two unique residential projects that have been years in the making: The Devon at University Place and The Exton, according to Amanda Butterfield, spokeswoman for owners Woodbury Corp.

The third complex, the Aston was completed a few years ago.

The Devon and Exton apartment buildings also feature ground floor retail space. The Exton units are designed to wrap around a five-story parking garage.

This innovative design is the first of its kind in Utah County and one of a few in Utah. Residents living on the sixth and seventh floors can drive up the parking terrace right into their own closed-in garage.

“I am excited for the announcement of these two unique apartment complexes,” said Orem Mayor Richard Brunst. “This is the first time in Utah County that this kind of combined parking, residential and retail spaces have been built together. University Place continues to bring new and innovative ideas to Orem in the way of mixed-use facilities.”
