Rosewood Estates is a high-quality single family community at affordable rental rates.  In addition to providing a gazebo, covered pavilion w/ BBQ facility, community garden, playground and equipped walking path with sitting areas, there will be a clubhouse equipped with a kitchen, fitness center, business center with computer stations, children’s activity room, library and laundry room complete with 3 washer and 3 dryers all for the convenience of our residents.

Rosewood Estates will consist of 56 brand new, three and four-bedroom affordable homes. Affordability is illustrated by:

  • 3 of the rentable Homes are offered to those earning 30% of the area median income
  • 31 of the rentable Homes are offered to those earning 50% of the area median income
  • 16 of the rentable Homes are offered to those earning 60% of the area median income
  • 6 of the rentable Homes are offered at market rents with NO income restrictions

In an effort to combat the rising cost of utilities, various energy-efficient systems will be utilized with the expressed goal to increase building efficiency and lower energy costs via the EarthCraft House program certification.  The EarthCraft House program serves as a blueprint for energy and resource efficient homes.

Each model includes:

  • A handsomely appointed kitchen complete with dishwasher, garbage disposal, electric range/oven with an exhaust hood, microwave and a frost-free refrigerator/freezer with icemaker.
  • Full bathroom(s) with all the newest features, tub and shower combination, linen closet, one-piece vanity top, and vinyl floor.

  • Fire alarms.
  • Individually controlled heating and air conditioning.
  • Energy-efficient heat pumps.
  • Maintenance includes home interior service, lawns, landscaping, and pest control.

Owners expect this project to create 3 - 5 permanent jobs, and to maintain 100 – 150 existing jobs, primarily in construction and related trades.

Rosewood is located on the west side of Joe Wright Drive just south of Crisp Street in Cordele, Crisp County.
