DENVER, CO – April 7, 2023 – Today, Cardinal is thrilled to announce Canvas Tempe, managed by Cardinal Group Management and developed by Toll Brothers Campus Living, Subtext, and Harrison Street, has been awarded the Student Housing Business Innovator Award for Best Package and Offering of Amenities. This award recognizes Canvas Tempe’s outstanding commitment to providing its residents with a remarkable, one-of-a-kind student housing experience.

From the E-Blue E-Sports Lounge to the Private Podcast Lounge, the amenities at Canvas Tempe are designed to encourage creativity and innovation among its residents. The Nail Bar and Spa, Selfie Pavilion, and Rooftop Oasis are just a few of the other unique features that set Canvas Tempe apart from other apartment complexes in the Tempe, Arizona, market.

After opening in August 2021, Canvas Tempe hit 100% pre-lease by February 28 — an impressive 19% ahead of the market average.

Cardinal is also pleased to announce the Best Community Name award in partnership with Parallel, Threshold Agency, and Kayne Anderson for Rev in College Station, Texas. Cardinal was awarded management of the Rev community in November 2022. Lease-Up Manager Liz Rustin says, “I’ve already grown so attached to the Texas A&M culture and how it directly reflects our community, Rev. It’s important that Rev offers an unparalleled experience for its residents in the same way the tradition of Miss Reveille reigned as the First Lady of Aggieland.”

Cardinal is eager to welcome residents to Texas A&M’s newest development, coming to College Station in August of this year.
