Santa Cruz, CA, March 24, 2015 —  

The grand opening of the new Riverwalk Apartments took place on March 24th, at 110 Lindberg Street and residents were buzzing about their fantastic broadband connection. Cruzio Internet has partnered with For the Future Housing and the Santa Cruz Economic Development Department to supply the new apartment complex with 100Mbps of high-speed, fiber-grade, broadband for all its residents. That strategic partnership made this incredible opportunity possible by arranging to implement a network distribution-friendly infrastructure while the building was under construction. Future tenants will now have access to high-quality Internet for very low prices — free for the first two years.

For the Future Housing partners with industry leaders in finance, architecture, engineering, construction, property management and resident service providers to exceed client objectives and deliver superior residential real estate projects.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Cruzio in providing free high-speed Internet for the residents of our Riverwalk Apartments project,” said Jim Rendler, Principal and Director of Development, For the Future Housing. “Such an important amenity will help residents achieve their educational, financial and employment goals. Additionally, it will be especially beneficial for our onsite resident services programs such as after-school tutoring.”  

J Guevera, Santa Cruz Economic Development Manager agrees: “Tenants not only have an amazing location but will also enjoy breathtaking Internet, thanks to a partnership between local internet service provider, Cruzio, and affordable housing developer, For the Future Housing, Inc. providing unprecedented Internet speeds for the complex at an affordable price. Economic Development is always looking for ways to connect businesses with the needs of our community so we can all thrive in the 21st-century economy.”

This partnership created what became an accelerated version of Cruzio’s already existent Building Certification Program offering certification for apartment complex buildings to provide high-speed, broadband to tenants at an affordable cost. Cruzio is constantly expanding its broadband network and the addition of Riverwalk Apartments is one of many more to come. Just recently, Cruzio added 1001 Center Street to their list of certified buildings along with those that were previously added in 2014; University Town Center, The Rittenhouse Building and 2030 North Pacific Avenue Apartments. Cruzio offers free evaluations to see if your location is eligible for service.
