Redefining residential living while combining value, quality and convenience into a living experience that’s truly unique is the goal of Universal Development and Construction’s newest brand, Universal Living.
Universal Living is Universal Development & Construction’s (UDC) new customer-focused residential property management department. UDC currently has properties throughout the Tri-Cities region as well as Sevierville, Tennessee, and Asheville, North Carolina and has multiple planned developments in Morristown and Knoxville, Tennessee as well as Hendersonville, North Carolina. Universal Living’s vision is to provide quality apartments and townhomes designed with modern amenities and conveniences at the best value in the region.
While the new name comes with a redesigned website and logo, one thing won’t change, and that is Universal Living’s commitment to its residents and customers. The company will continue to utilize the same internal development, construction and property management teams.
Shane Abraham, president of Universal Development and Construction states, “We are excited about taking this next step in our company which better defines who we are today and specifically what we do. We feel our unique customer-centric approach to development and property management can be better conveyed with this focused brand.”
Universal Living properties feature modern amenities at best in class prices. Apartments and townhomes are designed with the resident’s comforts in mind and feature stainless steel kitchen appliances, hardwood-style plank flooring, ceiling fans, granite countertops and much more. Many Universal Living properties also feature zero entry saltwater pools, professional grade fitness facilities, business centers, playgrounds and fenced-in bark parks. Universal Living residents also have access to 24/7 online account management.
“Our new brand, Universal Living, represents our focus on combining convenience, quality and value into a unique living experience, while remaining true to our “universal” heritage.” Cheryl Songster, Vice President Universal Development & Construction, LLC
