HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) - Sterling University Housing, the student housing affiliate of The Dinerstein Companies, is pleased to announce receiving LEED® for Homes Gold certification for its Sterling Frisco apartments near the University of Arkansas. The recent certification makes the off-campus student housing community the newest and largest LEED certified apartments in Fayetteville.

"We are pleased and proud to have earned LEED Gold for Sterling Frisco," says Brian Dinerstein, President of The Dinerstein Companies. "LEED certification demonstrates our commitment to developing green communities that make healthier, sustainable living more accessible to college students. To achieve the rating of Gold is a true achievement for our team."

The eco-friendly off-campus apartments achieve a 17-30 percent energy use reduction with features such as ENERGY STAR windows and kitchen appliances; energy-efficient air conditioning, heating and lighting; and programmable thermostats. Drought tolerant landscaping, low-flow water fixtures and other measures help reach a 25-40 percent reduction of water usage. Sterling Frisco also offers onsite recycling for residents and preferred parking for fuel efficient vehicles. 

In addition, the luxury apartment community features upscale amenities including a resort-style salt water pool with pool-side cabanas, a 24-hour fitness center, roof top deck, free tanning center, and multiple study areas with Apple and PC computers. Each furnished apartment is equipped with flat screen TVs in the living room and bedrooms, oversized stackable washer and dryers, and modern finishes. 

Located on West Avenue at Maple and Lafayette Street in downtown Fayetteville, Sterling Frisco is adjacent to the U of A campus and the Frisco Trail. This ideal setting makes it possible for students living at Sterling to walk or bike to the university, the popular Dickson Street entertainment district and more. "Sterling Frisco gives our residents a unique opportunity to live, learn, and play within walking distance of the University of Arkansas campus," says Dinerstein.

A 637-bedroom stylish student housing complex, Sterling Frisco offers individual leases by the bed on all-inclusive 1-4 bedroom apartments. With individual leasing, high-quality living is more affordable for college students and each student is only responsible for his or her lease agreement.

According to Dinerstein, preleasing for the Fall 2014 academic year is ahead of last year's pace and over 50% of the property's current residents have already renewed for next year.
