Until students learned their dream apartments wouldn’t be ready in time for the fall move-in, and some received notice that their leases had been terminated.
Residents received an email on June 27 explaining that LUX, an apartment complex located on a 9.13-acre site along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, would not be completed in time for the Aug. 17 move-in date. The email laid out two options for residents: they could be put up in hotels or could terminate their leases.
But last week, some UNC students planning on living in LUX received another email from Trinitas, LUX’s developer. That email, only sent to certain residents, served as notice to select residents that their leases had been terminated.
“Despite tireless efforts put forth by the contractors in Chapel Hill, areas of our building will not be completed in the manner that holds true to expectation,” the email sent to certain residents last week states. “This means that at this time we are forced to release some of our incoming residents from their lease obligations.”
