The third phase of Oxford Properties’ popular Summit Crossing apartments in Forsyth County, Georgia, The Reserve is an amenity rich, 172 unit development spread across five three-story and one three/two split building. A mix of one and two-bedroom units, this lovely place to call home is located on Ronald Regan Parkway in Cumming, one of the state’s fastest-evolving areas.
With a small-town heart and a big-city attitude, this exurban burg 45 minutes northeast of Atlanta lies on the edge of Lake Lanier and boasts both picturesque natural landscapes and an adorable town center rapidly filling with chef-led restaurants and unique retail. Far enough away from Atlanta to feel beautifully rural but close enough for an inspired date night, the Reserve is a prime place to experience the good life in North Georgia.
As a property owner (and frequent Corcoran Ota collaborator), Oxford has a reputation for pushing for excellence. We’re more than happy to oblige. Everything about this multi-family development is designed for upgraded, upmarket living: from the buildings’ brick base exteriors and open breezeways, to fine stone countertops, luxury vinyl flooring and generous floor plans inside each unit. Our favorite part, however? The Reserve’s tricked out leasing office. Designed to be part communal kitchen (perfect for complex-wide gatherings with a drink fridge and ample counter space for serving), part business center, and part upscale pool house, the 3350 square- foot building allows Oxford to make a grand impression on potential residents, and gives current residents the chance to make a splash while entertaining. Other amenities include a high-tech gym with on-demand video fitness classes, large zero-entry pool and lounge deck, fire pit, and grilling station.
Oxford had owned this property for quite some time, using the bulk of it as a construction staging area for The Reserve’s previous two phases. This gave us a cleaner, less difficult landscape than usual, meaning we could spend more energy designing a luxury living experience and less time dealing with challenging topography. Oxford wanted phase three to be the crown jewel so we worked hard to up the ante, successfully rising to the challenge of designing this project at an exceptionally high level.
