With this apartment boom going on I could definitely see more apartments being proposed for downtown, the medical district and harrisburg. Also I believe the 2020 census will surprise a lot of people. I could honestly see ARC reach a population of 210,000 or 215,000.

Some apartment complexes that have opened in the last couple of months are seeing their spaces fill up rapidly. Arieal Washington, Community Manager for the Canal Side Apartment complex that opened in late July says, “We’ve been leasing very quickly, we’re a little over 80 percent right now. As far as what we have left to lease, the influx came very quickly.” Canal Side Apartments chose a great location across the street from University Hospital. Washington says the medical district in Augusta has helped to lease out many of the Canal Side spaces. “It’s predominantly the medical district, professionals in the area, we’ve got a lot of engineering, plant Vogtle, stuff like that. So we’re growing as quickly as Augusta is growing,” claims Washington.

And apartment communities are growing as well. Benson Estates hopes to follow suit with Canal Side, choosing a location near a large employment hub in Fort Gordon. The 250 unit complex is still constructing three story buildings off of Tobacco road. Sage Creek, a 120 unit complex on Mark’s Church Road is planning on opening its doors in the coming months as well. Washington says, “with everything that’s coming here the change over with Fort Gordon, the cyber center, Unisys coming, we’re gonna need a lot more apartment communities to fill up the living space needed for these incoming workers.”

Apartment complex managers told us that apartments are growing faster than home owning in Augusta because the military and those working on large scale engineering project like Plant Vogtle will only want to live in a space for the duration of their contract.
