Armada Hoffler, Terwilliger Pappas plan $52M Gainesville apartment project

A new upscale apartment development is planned about an hour northeast of Atlanta in Gainesville, Ga.

Virginia-based Armada Hoffler Properties Inc.(NYSE: AHH) today announced it has entered into a joint venture with Terwilliger Pappas to develop Solis Gainesville, a new 223-unit multifamily development in the city’s downtown.

The developers say the $52 million project will feature boutique hotel-inspired amenities, public park and civic space connecting to an existing pedestrian bridge that provides direct walkable access to upscale retail, dining, green way,performing arts, and cultural offerings as well as Gainesville City Hall and the historic Gainesville Square.“Solis Gainesville is the most recent addition to our growing pipeline of apartment projects and our second venture with Terwilliger Pappas,” said Louis Haddad,president and CEO of Armada Hoffler Properties, in a statement. “Solis Gainesville,along with our previously announced acquisitions, continues our rapid progress toward achieving portfolio equilibrium across the office, retail, and multifamily segments. We look forward to breaking ground on the project later this month with anticipated completion in 2022.”

Dynamik Design is the architect for the project.

Armada Hoffler’s other metro Atlanta projects include Southern Post in Roswell. In November 2019, Armada Hoffler and S.J. Collins Enterprises closed on the land purchase for the former Roswell Plaza site. Southern Post is a 4.28 acre mixed-use development that will offer 40,000 square feet of retail space, 90,000 square feet of loft style, open-concept office space, 128 luxury apartments and an exclusive offering of 10 high-end town homes with garages. Armada Hoffler is the majority partner in the project.

Armada Hoffler is also financially backing the office and retail components of The Interlock, a mixed-use development in West Midtown.
