Details of depot project unveiled
AUGUSTA, Ga (WJBF) – It’s a six acre parking lot right now, but there’s a lot more in the works for the depot property downtown.
“It’s projects like this that will transform our community. It’s been a long time coming and it’s certainly something we are excited about,” says Mayor Hardie Davis.
They’re calling it Riverfront at the Depot
140 upscale apartments. A big office building. 800 plus parking spots, green space, retail space. Something for everyone.
“The apartments are going to be a great place to live. Like I said, walk here, live here, work here, play here. You can have it all in this wonderful development,” said Rodney Barstein of Retail Specialists, a partner in the project.
The project is moving forward but a lot of work remains. Developers have the go-ahead to get their finances and engineering in place for commission approval. That’s going to take nine months.
