First phase of massive Newnan project underway with apartment construction

The first phase of a 123-acre mixed-use development in Newnan  -- the construction of almost 300 apartments and townhomes -- has broken ground in the Coweta County city.

The rental properties, which will include one-, two and three bedroom units as well as townhomes with garages, will be part of Village Square at Newnan Crossing, a massive development connecting offices, retail and walking trails at the intersection of Newnan Crossing Boulevard East and Lower Fayetteville Road in Newnan.

“We are thrilled to be underway on our next great town center project with Newnan Crossing,” said Jim Borders, president and CEO of Atlanta-based Novare Group, which is developing the project with partners PointOne Holdings Development and Batson-Cook Development Company.

“We have put together an experienced team to deliver a community that will lead the market and be unlike anything in the area. With all of the momentum around this region and with this centrally-located site, this is an exciting place to be right now.”

The multi-family apartments and townhomes are being built on 24 acres in a community that will be gated and will include a clubroom, fitness center, pool, area for outdoor grilling and a dog park.
