Lawrenceville breaks ground on 32-acre Town Center project

George Berkow Inc., Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Company have officially broken ground on the residential component of a $200 million mixed-use, town center development in Lawrenceville.

Called “SouthLawn,” it will add more than 600 residences, more than 15,000 square feet of retail space and a town green in close proximity to the historic downtown. It will connect city hall and the police station with the Lawrenceville Lawn and create a walkable environment that includes the Lawn as well as the Historic Lawrenceville Square.

The residential development will include urban-style three- and four-story apartments and townhomes, and single-family detached cluster houses.

The multi-family residences will include two offerings: “SouthLawn, Luxury Apartment Residences,” which will be three- and four-story urban apartments along Clayton Street in a town center format with an elevated pool area looking over the entire development, and “Conclave,” a four-story building on a one-acre park with larger residences.

The single-family and townhome component, which is led by George Berkow, Inc., will have over 150 home sites.
