The garden-apartment project sits on more than 23 acres off Highway 20 along Stanley Street, adjacent to Sugar Hill’s new master-planned downtown, which features The Bowl amphitheater and The Eagle Theater, an art deco performing-arts venue. The first units are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2023.
“With the high value the city places on the quality of life, Sugar Hill has become one of the premier places to live in Gwinnett County,” Novare President and CEO Jim Borders said in a press release. “We’re excited to partner with BCDC on this community, bringing sought-after apartments to activate the town center area.”
The community will have a mix of two-story townhouses and traditional apartments, as well as a co-working lounge, private garages and a resort-style pool with a sun shelf and tanning ledge. It will also feature a state-of-the-art fitness center with yoga room, a clubroom, game room and library. The property’s outdoor greenspace will include fire pits, grilling stations, a dog park and spa.
The 11.5-mile Sugar Hill Greenway will be integrated into the site and will connect it to the rest of Sugar Hill’s downtown via a future pedestrian bridge crossing Highway 20 from Stanley Street.
Novare Group is leading the project with co-sponsor BCDC, while Cadence Bank and South State Bank are lenders. Dynamik Design is the architect, Kimley Horn is the civil engineer, and Doster Construction is the general contractor.
