Columbia Brookside Classic Residences is a brand new, master-planned, mixed-income community at the site of the former Jack R. Wells community.

Leasing is now underway for the classic family residences. Move-ins are underway for seniors ages 55 and above at Columbia Brookside Senior Residences, our second phase.

Both phases (Classic and Senior) are pursuing LEED® certification, and the overall development will be one of Georgia’s first LEED®-ND communities.

Accessibility is as important as affordability. Columbia Brookside’s convenient location makes it easy to get to all of your destinations around Athens, including UGA, hospital campuses, plus shopping, service retailers, and dining. Two bus routes serve our community from the Hawthorne entrance, and a new bus stop inside our community on Brookside Blvd will be available later this year. When you want to take a more leisurely approach, there are also scenic trails for bicycling and walking.
