The Cottages at Lexington in Athens is Fully Leased

ATLANTA – Jim Chapman Construction Group (JCCG), a build-to-rent (BTR) general contractor, announces the successful completion of The Cottages at Lexington, the company’s second BTR project in Athens, Georgia. This achievement underscores JCCG’s capability to blend quality construction with the unique dynamics of a college town.

Located at 4505 Lexington Rd in Athens, The Cottages at Lexington spans 41 acres and comprises 200 units of RanchCottagesForRent attached townhomes. This project follows the successful lease-up of JCCG’s first Athens project, The Cottages at Ridge Point, highlighting the demand for quality rental options in a major Southeastern Conference (SEC) college town.

Jim Chapman, President of JCCG, commented on the project: “The successful development of The Cottages at Lexington reflects our adeptness in delivering top-notch residential communities in unique markets like college towns. We’re providing a mix of lifestyle and comfort that appeals to the broad demographic of renters that college towns attract.”

The success in Athens, followed by the recent closure of a new BTR deal in Tallahassee, FL, reinforces JCCG’s reputation in developing appealing, well-located rental communities that resonate with the dynamics of massive college towns.

“Working with Jim Chapman Construction Group on the lease-up of The Cottages at Ridge Point and The Cottages at Lexington was a remarkable experience,” expressed Carolyn Sidhilall
Community Director with Rangewater. “The quality of the JCCG homes is a perfect fit for the unique needs of college towns like Athens. Their attention to detail and commitment to quality resonate well with our diverse tenant base, from students to local professionals.

The Cottages at Lexington offers five distinct home floorplans – Frisco, Fresno, Richmond, Reno, and Tucson – with square footage ranging from 1,020 to 1,466. Each unit features modern LVT flooring on the main level, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, an included washer/dryer, and options for a one or two-car garage.

The community took 25 months to build from horizontal construction to full lease out. The gated, fully fenced community boasts amenities like on-site management and leasing offices, 24-hour emergency maintenance, a clubhouse, swimming pool, fitness center, sidewalks and streetlights.

JCCG’s proven expertise as a licensed general contractor in six states makes it an ideal partner for investors and funds seeking comprehensive construction solutions. Services include pre-construction assistance, design-build, construction management and full-service general contracting.
