Luxury Apartments on Augusta Canal to Open in February
A new riverside apartment complex is in the process of pre-leasing luxury apartments that a spokesperson for the managing company says are raising the bar for luxury living in Augusta.
Residence at Riverwatch, located off River Watch Parkway behind GTC Riverwatch Cinemas, is expected to be completed and ready to accommodate renters in February. Amenities will include direct access to the Augusta Canal, complimentary access to kayaks and kayak storage and a 3,000-square-foot pool.
“It’s going to set a new standard,” said Karen Kernaghan, project manager for Intermark Management Corporation. “Augusta’s been longing for that.”
The 260-unit complex, which includes 8 buildings, has one, two, and three-bedroom units ranging from $1,015 to $1,475 per month.
Intermark is based in Columbia, South Carolina and has been involved in the creation of similar high-end projects in cities like Columbia, Charleston and Greenville.
Kernaghan said that kind of living option was lacking in Augusta, and that Residence at Riverside will be revolutionary for the area.
Aside from having a coveted canalside location, the apartment complex will have a 24-hour cyber cafe, a state-of-the art dog park, a poolside pavilion, a 24-hour fitness studio and a floating dock.
“This community is going to set itself apart from every other community in the area by being a high-rise with elevators that offers direct access to the canal,” Kernaghan said.
