FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A new 152 luxury apartment development received final approval earlier this month.

Bradley Park apartment community, being constructed by Roberts Properties Residential, is a 22-acre property located on the south side of North Old Atlanta Road near Ga. Hwy. 9.

Roberts Properties Residential plans to build 152 luxury apartment units with 363 proposed parking spots.

The community will have 24 one-bedroom units sized 850-square feet per unit; 86 two-bedroom, 1,200-square-foot units and 42 three-bedroom, 1,300-square-foot units.

The building permits will be applied for in January, and construction is expected to begin in April or May with completion a year later.

"Being that we are very particular about our residents, it will probably take 12 months to lease it to the kind of folks we want," said Charles Roberts, who runs Roberts Properties Residential.

All apartments will be developed with 9-foot-tall ceilings and granite countertops.

Attorney Ethan Underwood, who represents Roberts Properties Residential, said the developer hopes to attract Northside Hospital-Forsyth employees looking for a home close to their work.

Forsyth County Commission Chairman Pete Amos said that he had spoken with Roberts earlier in the year about what to do with the property and he was pleased Roberts worked with neighbors and heard their concerns.

"He has a Class A apartment project that will increase the value of property in this whole area," Amos said. "This area has been slow to develop, some might say blighted, but we're starting to see some growth over there."

The sketch plat for the property was approved 3-1-0 with Commissioner Todd Levent opposed and Commissioner Brian Tam absent.
