Athens, Ga. — Juneau Construction Company has completed work on Georgia Heights, a 375,650-square-foot, six-story mixed-use student housing community with 266 units of housing and retail space in downtown Athens, north of the University of Georgia campus.
Residents of Georgia Heights moved in in August, in time for the 2015 fall semester. Juneau co-developed, with Schenk Realty and EdR, Georgia Heights, which has one-, two- and four-bedroom apartments, approximately 375 parking spaces and 44,702 square feet of ground-level commercial retail space.
A 14,000-square-foot CVS Pharmacy —set to open in 2016 — and a 6,000-square-foot J. Crew store that will open this fall will anchor the development’s commercial retail space. Several other retailers and restaurants, a leasing office and postal facility will complete the development.
Each apartment at Georgia Heights offers private bathrooms and bedrooms, a full kitchen and in-unit washer and dryer. Amenities include several outdoor community areas, a courtyard patio and pool, fitness facilities, study lounges and computer labs.
