Future residents and council members crowed the lobby of Ironwood apartment complex, for the official opening.
Patrick Jackson says North Augusta will see more economic growth with the addition to the new apartment complex.
“This brings people here, staying and eating at restaurants, needing places to shop,” said Jackson. “Weekends, weekdays or all hours all of the day, I think it’s going to add about 500 people living in this area. So that’s a huge economic impact.”
It’s not just living by the baseball park that has people eager to mover here. But access to the river, retail stores, and restaurants that are following next.
“Those are amenities we have nothing to do with that ae built in, that are just positives to this site down here,” said Jackson.
Dove says this will be good for her to commute to work. Also, an excellent place for her family to live.
“It just worked out perfect for us,” explained Dove. “My mother is living here also. She is going to be living next door. She lives with me know, and this is going to be a perfect scenario for us both. she’s got her apartment, and I got mine.”
