Birmingham-headquartered Doster Construction Co., along with real estate developer Novare Group and real estate firm BCDC, have broken ground on a 306-unit apartment community on more than 23 acres in Sugar Hill, Georgia.

The project is directly across from Sugar Hill’s recently built downtown, which features an amphitheater and a performing arts venue.

“With the high value the city places on the quality of life, Sugar Hill has become one of the premier places to live in Gwinnett County,” said Jim Borders, president and CEO of Novare Group.

The project is a mix of two-story townhomes and traditional apartment units. It will be a gated community with controlled-access buildings, a co-working lounge, private garages and a resort-style pool, as well as fitness center, clubroom, game room and library. Outdoor spaces include fire pits, grilling stations and a dog park and spa.

Cadence Bank and South State Bank are lenders on the project. Doster is serving as general contractor with Dynamik Design serving as architect and Kimley Horn as civil engineer.

The first units should be ready in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Besides its headquarters in Birmingham, Doster Construction has offices in Huntsville and Nashville, Tennessee.
