Baker Village II is a 148 unit apartment complex consisting of 32 one bedroom units, 88 two bedroom units and 28 three bedroom units currently under construction in Columbus, GA.  This family oriented development consists of 22 two-story buildings on approximately 15 acres.  It is the second phase of a multi-phased redevelopment of the former Baker Village Housing Authority property.  This mixed income community will house Public Assisted, Section 8 and market rate residents. 

Baker Village is located within walking distance to schools, shopping, and doctors as well as the main gate to Fort Benning.  The complex will have amenities that include washer and dryer connections and  dishwashers in each unit; community building with a large community room, library, computer center, fitness room and community laundry; equipped picnic areas, gazebo, playground and kid friendly splash pad area.

Energy efficiency is an integral part of the Columbia product and for this project includes energy star appliances, additional insulation in attic areas, 14 SEER HVAC systems, low flow faucets and toilets and other features in an effort to keep resident utility costs to a minimum.

Construction of Baker Village is expected to generate over 50 full time jobs and over 40 temporary part time positions over the projected twelve month construction period. Upon completion of construction, it is expected that Baker Village will employ two to four full time employees for ongoing operations.
