Luxury Condos Planned - 423 Mulberry

MACON, GEORGIA — Sierra Development Group and SPP Commercial Group announces plans for luxury condos on Mulberry Street in downtown Macon. The condos will be located at 423 Mulberry St. at the corner of Mulberry and Broadway. The plans call for 6 story, multi-purpose building, that will accommodate 10 condos and a bank on the ground floor.

This now vacant lot will have gated, covered parking onsite for the residents, as well as a rooftop terrace that will be exclusive to resident use. There are two different floor plans, both with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 baths. Balconies overlooking downtown are included in both of the floor plans, with the largest balconies on the 6th floor. Exclusive elevator access from the lobby is directly connected to the covered parking. Private, temperature controlled, storage units will be located on the ground floor for resident use. The condos will include spacious floor plans with top of the line finishes. Potentially, the buyer will have the option of playing a role in the selection process of certain finishes, colors and flooring.

Each condo will be available for purchase, not lease.

Sierra Development Group has a long history of partnering with groups throughout Macon to cultivate and nurture the growth of Macon, specifically downtown and Mercer’s campus. Through these partnerships, one of which includes Mercer University, Sierra and SPP, have been able to play a large part in changing the landscape, culture, and perception of Macon life. This newest endeavor is unlike any other project in the history of downtown Macon. All of their current lofts are for lease only but this new, high-end, development will provide the first ever new-construction condos that will be available for purchase. Residents of Macon and those looking to relocate to the Macon area, have expressed a desire to be able to purchase a loft rather than lease. This project fulfills that request and is another move towards making downtown a walkable city with various living, dining and entertainment options.

Sierra Development Group and SPP Commercial Group are locally owned and operated companies with a focus on excellence and growth. Sierra Development Group is located on the historic corner of Cherry St. and MLK Jr. Blvd. in downtown and is responsible for handling the management of the properties. Sierra and SPP’s portfolio currently includes, Lofts at 401 Cherry, Lofts at Bass I and II, Lofts at Capricorn, Lofts at Navicent and Lofts at Zebulon.

The Growth and Blooming of Downtown Macon, Part Two - Parking

 Cherry Street

Cherry Street

Moving forward with our theme of Downtown growth and progress, a question on everyone’s mind is parking. With new businesses, restaurants and residential developments moving into the downtown core, the need for on-street parking is only going to grow. 

In November 2016, Macon-Bibb County Commissioners approved a new downtown parking plan that allows Macon’s Urban Development Authority to fund the addition of parking meters, pay stations and other parking management systems to Macon’s downtown core – the area between Walnut and Poplar and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and First Street. The downtown core contains 1260 parking spaces, and according to Alex Morrison, the Executive Director for the Urban Development Authority, around 850 meters should be installed by the end of this month. 

According to a March 2018 article by Linda Morris of the Macon Telegraph, paid parking will be enforced Monday – Saturday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. and will cost $1.25 an hour. These parking meters are anticipated to generate $1 million annually, which will support the parking system itself, and then any extra revenue will be put back into downtown through accessibility and parking improvements. Bibb Urban Development has contracted with Lanier Parking Meter Services to install and manage parking meters and the authority’s parking decks downtown. The bright side to this new parking system downtown is that there will be a higher turnover of available spaces because of the two-hour parking limit, meaning more opportunities for people to park downtown and enjoy all Macon has to offer. 

The great thing about living at a Lofts property is the gated, access-controlled entry parking! At Lofts at Capricorn and Lofts at Navicent, residents have guaranteed parking spaces. Both properties are located downtown, meaning an evening stroll down a block or two leads you directly to a wide selection of restaurants, bars, and theaters! You could even grab your morning coffee just one block from Lofts at Capricorn at Taste and See! 

Living downtown definitely has its perks, but with downtown growth booming and new parking regulations starting, the idea of guaranteed parking presents an easy choice -

Live it, Love it, Loft it! Life just got better at the Lofts!

The Growth and Blooming of Downtown Macon

 View from Lofts at Capricorn

View from Lofts at Capricorn

Spring has finally sprung in Macon, GA! The cherry blossoms are in full bloom and there is a nice warm breeze in the air. I don’t know if it is just me, but something about this time of year makes me want to be outside and enjoy this weather as much as possible. While taking a stroll downtown, I began to think about how the flowers weren't the only thing growing in Macon this year. The downtown area is certainly changing! Many new attractions have started to pop up and there are many more to come; including restaurants, hotels, retail space, office space, apartments, and more parking.  

One of the restaurants that is set to open later this year is Your Pie, a brick oven pizza restaurant that allows customers to create and customize their own personal pizza. It will be located on Poplar Street beside Taste and See Coffee Shop. According to the Newtown Macon website, several other eateries will be coming to Poplar Street as well including Decadent Desert Bar and Famous Mike's. To help with the influx of people these tasty attractions are sure to bring, more parking is also being added throughout the downtown area. 

If anyone has ventured down Poplar Street lately, it is easy to see the construction that is going on in the median. This area is being turned into an attraction itself. The City of Macon is transforming the Poplar Street Commons into an area that will contain new concrete, trees, and landscaping. Not only will it be beneficial for downtown events and festivals in the future, but all the new green space is also sure to be easy on the eyes.  

There are also many new apartments and lofts coming to the downtown area. The Lofts at Capricorn just opened up on MLK Jr Blvd. It is built at the site of Capricorn Records. When walking through the doors, the old town music feel is immediately mixed with a modern touch. The walls are covered with records of the artists that once made music in that very location. It'll make someone want to pull a guitar right off the wall and begin strumming a tune! All of this along with beautiful state of the art lofts makes this one of the hottest new places to see and live in the downtown area.  

It is interesting to take a walk through the streets of downtown Macon and make a mental note of what is seen now, while also thinking back on how the area has already changed. It is a privilege and a pleasure to watch this town grow. And just like this spring season, Macon, GA is really starting to bloom!

STUDENT HOUSING AT IT’S BEST

In the past, college students have had to live in cramped single-room dorms with limited storage space, barely any study space, a community bathroom and NO privacy. Thankfully, that college experience has changed with developments like Live at Lofts – Student Housing. Students now enjoy the privacy of their own room and bathroom. The common areas in the loft and throughout the property offer ample space to study, socialize and relax. No more mini-microwave meals for every meal! Lofts residents now have lots of counter space, full sized appliances and granite counter tops.

The Lofts at Mercer Village are situated above retail spaces lining the corridor of Mercer Village. Our residents enjoy the walkability to campus life and the convenience of restaurants such as Sauced, Margarita’s, Subway and Nu-Way. Not only does the property offer a new experience in regards to the student’s physical surroundings but also in the personal one on one treatment they receive.

Kaeleigh and Laura Beth make up our management team onsite. They work day in and day out to maintain the best in quality and customer service. Whether it’s setting up for fun resident events, helping families with the housing process or following up on maintenance requests, these two make every effort to get things done and done right! Come see us for more about the Lofts experience!
