Vue53 to host VIP Grand Opening on December 8 – rental applications now being accepted

Vue53, the new 13-story, mixed-use residential and retail building currently under construction at 1330 E. 53rd Street, recently opened a temporary leasing office at 1453 E. 53rd Street, and is hosting a VIP Grand Opening event for the community on Tuesday, December 8, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event will take place at the leasing office, giving people an opportunity to see full-scale mock-ups of the apartment room sizes with furniture, meet the Vue53 staff, and learn additional information about the building and its leasing process.

Vue53 will feature 267 units, including furnished and unfurnished 1 bedroom/1 bath units, three different 2 bedroom/2 bath units, and two different studio apartment layouts. Amenities include a 24-hour front desk attendant, 24-hour fitness center, modern clubhouse with complimentary Wi-Fi, business center and study lounges, game room with pool tables and flat-screen television, multiple outdoor sundecks, secure bike storage, optional in-building parking, and more.

The best way to apply for housing is via the website. On the site, applicants will click on “Sign a Lease” at the top of the page. There is a $50.00 application fee and a $150 administration fee due at that time (if a lease is not signed within 72 hours, the administration fee will be refunded).

Vue53 also includes 28 affordable housing units, and interested applicants should contact the leasing office for more details.

Peak Campus thrilled to welcome this exciting project to our growing portfolio,” said Bob Clark, President at Peak Campus.  “We believe this is a great addition to the 53rd Street corridor and will soon be part of the neighborhood’s unique cultural fabric.  Our team looks forward to serving our new residents and the local community with an unmatched customer experience and a cutting-edge feature and amenity package.”
