Walton Communities, a leading developer, owner and manager of apartment communities throughout metro-Atlanta and Augusta, turned to us after a huge loss when one of their apartment buildings was destroyed in a fire. They wanted to replace the units with an updated design unique to the market. The developer also saw the opportunity to simultaneously move their corporate offices to the same property, so the new Walton Communities combines the Chattahoochee Riverside Apartments, the Walton Lower Level Lodge New Corporate Office and a Walton Corporate Office Annex.
Walton wanted a higher-end product they could offer at a higher price point. So, we designed units larger than those at typical apartment complexes, and we added high-grade finishes and stone countertops. Combined with spectacular views of the Chattahoochee river, the living space composes a picture full of luxury and style.
Over the course of this project, we found that the age, structure and condition of the existing buildings were less than suitable for office space. However, our designers embraced this challenge to provide full corporate capabilities on the same property as the residential space, offering tenants convenience and security. When complete, we expect the apartments will be in high demand in the area.
