Each Lions Gate unit comes with fully furnished living rooms and bedrooms and modern kitchens with major appliances.
The Lions Gate — a four-story $50 million complex — is located in the heart of the township so students can easily walk and bike to classes, stores, and restaurants. It's also convenient to public transportation.
