The Onyx will feature a luxurious six stories, five for student living and a ground floor for retail on College Ave. The goal of the Onyx is to give the independence of a house with the perks of a resort.

The Onyx will also offer all of its residents access to it’s two residential lobbies, resident courtyard, high end swimming pool, hot tub, fitness center with cardio equipment and weight and cross fit training, tanning beds, massage room, sauna, individual study areas and a study lounge, club and game room, theater, coffee, lounge and onsite management.

John Diedrich, CA Ventures Vice President of Investments, is thrilled about this project because this is the first project CA Ventures has done in Tallahassee and he feels the location is perfect for students.

“We are excited to do this project in Tallahassee because it’s in an irreplaceable location,” Diedrich said. “There’s not many places you can put a project of this size and scale so close to campus. We’re excited to give students a chance to live two blocks from campus and two blocks from downtown.”

Each apartment will include 50” flat screen TVs, in-unit washer/dryers, designer living room furniture, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, euro style cabinetry, glass shower doors, hardwood style floors and garbage disposals.

Amber Brunson, graduating Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University Business Administration senior from Miami, FL, states she wishes this complex would have been around when she first moved off campus.

“The Onyx is going to make College Ave look way more modern,” Brunson said. “I would have loved to have stayed somewhere that offered the same amenities as the Onyx.”

LaDarius Gardner, a Florida A&M University sophomore, is currently apartment hunting and said he’s very interested in moving to Onyx.

“The location of this complex is perfect,” Gardner said. “I’d be right in the middle of everything and I would also be able to enjoy living in an upscale styled student apartment with great perks.”
