MADISON, ALA. — Novare Group and Batson-Cook Development Co. (BCDC) plan to develop a new apartment community in Madison. Synovus Bank provided construction financing to the co-developers, and Marble Capital provided equity for the 290-unit, mid-rise community. The Synovus loan was not disclosed but reportedly totaled $31.5 million.
The unnamed project will include three, four-story residential buildings with two ground-floor retail spaces totaling 5,000 square feet. Each building will have conditioned corridors and elevators, and there will be 483 surface parking spaces and 25 detached garages. The property will offer studios, one- and two-bedroom units.
Community amenities will include a resort-style swimming pool, private coworking lounge with private rooms and a conference room, fitness center with a yoga and spin room, dog park, clubroom with demo kitchen and fireplace and direct access to the Singing River Trail, a 70-mile-long Northern Alabama trail system. The project will also include eight live/work units.
Located at 375 Lime Quarry Road, the community will be adjacent to Town Madison, a 563-acre mixed-use urban, walkable community.
Niles Bolton Associates is the architect, Walter Schoel Engineering Co. is the civil engineer and Doster Construction Co. is the general contractor. Construction will commence in April, with the first units set to deliver in the summer of 2022.
