Mallard Lake Apartments is a 72 unit apartment complex consisting of 8 one bedroom units, 32 two bedroom units and 32 three bedroom units currently under construction in LaGrange, GA. The development is intended for 100% occupancy by family households. The buildings are all two-story and have many design features, services and amenities for family households. The proposed site is also located within walking distance to several family-oriented services such as: schools, shopping, and doctors. The complex will have amenities based on the family tenant base such as: washer and dryer connections, dishwashers, community building, equipped picnic areas, gazebo, playground and swimming pool.
Energy efficiency was of paramount concern to the design team. Computer modeling was used to generate recommendations to reduce the units’ energy consumption. The apartment homes will utilize energy star appliances and will exceed the Georgia Energy Code in an effort to keep residents ‘utility costs to a minimum.
A portion of the rents are structured to be affordable for households at or below 50% and 60% of AMI. The site is located at the west end of LaGrange and is close to the new KIA automotive manufacturing plant and the area hospital.
Construction of Mallard Lake is expected to generate over 75 full time jobs and over 35 temporary part time positions over the projected nine month construction period. Upon completion of construction, it is expected that Mallard Lake will employ three to four full time employees for ongoing operations.
