Notorious apartment complex given new lease



It was once known as one of the most dangerous apartment complexes in Augusta, but a new owner has stepped in and turned the property around into a decent place for working Augustans to live.

  1. Very impressive. Cedar Grove Capital is to be commended. They approached the problem, and took immediate action. They have made an investment, and they are expecting the investment to be worthwhile. The “No Felons” is a major step in getting area back in check. Great job. You have made your Commissioner happy.

  2. Where is this apartment complex located in Augusta? This is awesome and more of the same should happen to other complexes in the CSRA! This is a proactive long term investment in Augusta! Thank you, Cedar Grove Capital!

  3. I am so glad to hear this, it’s a LONG time coming. This complex has a reputation going back at least 50 years that I personally know of. As a child I lived in the former Peachtree Gardens although we residents had a different name for it….. “Sin City”!

  4. In the 1950s this complex was called Myrtle Court. Almost all the renters were military families. I was a baby then, but my parents remained life-long friends with several of the other military families that resided there. We left Augusta for many years until my father decided to retire here. Hopefully the entire area around Wrightsboro and North Leg/Jackson Rd. will be transformed into safe neighborhoods.

  5. The owners are obviously connected and grease the right palms. There could be a murder there everyday and nothing would be done about it. Same thing happens with the seedy motels along Washington road that are hotspots for crime, drugs and human trafficking. Follow the money.
