New Rental Option to Add 251 Homes for WR Residents

Share This

As Warner Robins grows, its need for housing options continues to grow with it. Apartment complexes come in at a steady pace, and homes are being built as well. Nationwide, workforce and low-income housing has become a focus in many growing communities. Capstone Communities, the developers and owners of The Cottages at Warner Robins, hope to bring a new kind of community to the area.

Amanda Wallis, executive vice president of development for the real estate developer, provided some the details.

“We’re a company based in Birmingham, Alabama, and we specialize in developing, managing and constructing various types of housing; we’ve been known as a leader in the student-housing space for almost 30 years, but a few years ago we pivoted as a company and we expanded into the multi-family sector, and we’ve kind of been at the forefront of the build-for-rent movement with our cottage-style program,” Wallis explained. “We want to develop and create a sense of community. 

“Unlike what you traditionally find in an apartment setting, cottage living is perfect for people who want some space and the privacy of a house, but want the amenities, the maintenance and the convenience of an apartment.”

As of 2020, the city of Warner Robins had a population of 80,308 people, a number that had grown by nearly 15,000 since the census in 2010. The city’s population has continued to grow since the last census. By developing more housing, and more housing options in Warner Robins, the city is able to stay ahead of the current housing need, and create a pathway to future growth.

“It creates another housing option, another housing choice,” Wallis said. “If you look around Houston County, sometimes you can find a house for rent in a for-sale community, or you can find a three-story walk-up apartment. In this case, you can find an entire rental community with individual houses, duplexes or townhouses.”

The Cottages at Warner Robins, while rental space, are built as standalone houses, duplexes and townhouses. The homes come with yards and vaulted ceilings.

“It feels like a house, but it’s managed like an apartment community.”

The Cottages are currently under development, with many of their living spaces fully developed. When construction is complete in summer or fall of 2023, the community will boast 251 new living spaces, made up of one, two and three-bedroom homes. As of print-time Tuesday, nearly 60% of the property has been pre-leased.

Wallis told The Journal that their community welcomes a variety of individuals, from young professionals looking for a first apartment, people downsizing from a full home to something more cozy, or even families who know they’ll only be living in the area for three to five years.

The property will be managed by Capstone Communities own management team, locally in Warner Robins, through individuals who live on-site.

The Cottages saw their official ribbon cutting Tuesday, April 11. You can apply by visiting their location at 92 Bass Road, or by visiting their website: thecottagesatwarnerrobins.com.
