Assembly Student Living just got a massive COVID makeover

The times, they are a’changing and both life and businesses are changing to keep up with them.

That’s exactly what’s why the Assembly Student Living Center in Denver (formerly Regent Student Housing) just got a COVID makeover. The exterior of the tower now features bright, beautiful murals, intended to promote the themes of unity, imagination and creativity. It was a process, though. Painting on such a massive scale is no easy ordeal, and required a lot of paint, a lot of planning, a couple of swing stages, and at least one boom lift cherry picker.

Behold: an artsy, original, sneak peek inside the process they used to create those beautiful murals — originally scored and everything.

The outside of this student center isn't the only aspect of the Denver building that’s gotten a redux. When COVID-19 locked everything down, and the owners of the building started to do some renovating, they realized that the building was in need of an all-out overhaul to promote clean, healthy and safe living.

It’s a rebranding campaign that’s the result of a $2 million investment by Central Street Capital Inc. and includes renovation, redecoration and remodeling.

So, despite the massive changes to college life every school will see this year, students who return and get to take up residence inDenver's Assembly Student Living Center will have brand spanking new amenities to enjoy. The inside is almost as hip and colorful as the outside.
