The Big Idea: Redevelop the 30-acre site area formerly known as Cherry Tree Crossing into a mixed-use and master planned community.
Time: Groundbreaking 11/18/2016. Completion in 2020.
Details: This 30-acre site is bounded by 15th and Poplar Streets, Lee Beard Way and Swanee Quintet Boulevard. The plan is to complete four phases of residential development by late 2020 with a total of 410 units.
Walton Communities is partnering with the Augusta Housing Authority to totally develop the 30 acres on 15th Street that was the old Cherry Tree Crossing (and before Cherry Tree Crossing it was Sunset Homes) low income housing apartment complex into beautiful mixed-income housing community. The first building to be completed will be 80 units for seniors 55 years of age and older. Those apartments will start leasing in 2017. 15% of the apartments will be reserved for public housing.
Progress: Demolition of the old Cherry Tree Crossing public housing project was completed in mid-2014.
Groundbreaking took place on 11/17/2016. The first section, for senior citizens, is in line to be completed in 2017.
