At just 6 years old, Gainesville’s newest midtown developer has worked at a furious pace around Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., and Nashville, Tenn.
Boasting 23 completed projects, Atlanta-based Terwilliger Pappas says on its website, “Our focus is developing best-in-class multifamily communities in the Southeast’s most advantageous submarkets.”
“Locations where Terwilliger Pappas builds are coveted by tenants and competitors alike.”
In speaking to Gainesville officials Thursday, Sept. 12, about its multi-use project in midtown, the company’s executive vice president, Greg A. Power, said, “What we’re trying to do is create a sense of place, create a public, civic space at the end of the (Jesse Jewell Parkway pedestrian) bridge, create a gathering space connecting the Highlands to Islands Trail.”
He also said, “We’re excited to partner with the city, partner with stakeholders in the community. We are planting a flag here, and we will be here under construction over the next four years.”
A half-hour trip to Suwanee might give Gainesville residents an up-close look at the kind of work
Terwilliger Pappas produces.
Solis Suwanee Town Center is the nearest example of a housing development by the firm.
Located immediately adjacent to the Suwanee Town Center, the 240-unit mixed-use development has three buildings with 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail on about 6.125 acres.
Gainesville City Manager Bryan Lackey said the company’s Chamblee project, Solis Carraway, however, “is very similar to what they are proposing in Gainesville.”
That project, set for a spring 2020 completion, involves a 200-unit apartment complex, “featuring larger, boutique-feel apartment units with upscale finishes envisioned for the sophisticated renter, looking to lease rather than own,” the website says.
Elsewhere, in Georgia, Terwilliger Pappas has developed in Atlanta, Decatur and Kennesaw.
“These settings are both a source of value and a reflection of the firm’s expertise in creating solutions appealing to a variety of constituencies, including public officials, landowners and neighboring residents,” the company’s website says.
Terwilliger Pappas “is well capitalized and maintains access to additional resources to allow us to pursue the best sites in each of our markets,” according to its website, which says that it also has market locations in Mount Pleasant, S.C., and Winter Park, Fla.
