Posted on: November 5th, 2019

SUWANEE – Jim Chapman Communities, one of metro Atlanta’s premier homebuilders, has won a prestigious “Community of the Year” Award from the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association for The Overlook at Old Atlanta, a gated 55+ community near Johns Creek. Jim Chapman Communities received the award in the attached homes category, and was one of only four Community of the Year Award recipients honored at the 39th Annual OBIE Awards Gala. The annual event recognizes outstanding achievement in the home building industry with awards in nearly 100 building, remodeling, marketing and personal achievement categories.

The Overlook at Old Atlanta features both single family homes and attached, ranch-style villas, all with four-sides brick exteriors, master on the main, outdoor living spaces and three or four bedrooms. The pet-friendly development includes a clubhouse, fitness room, community garden, outdoor pool and tennis courts, and is located at 5801 Old Atlanta Road in Suwanee.

“All of us at Jim Chapman Communities are thrilled that The Overlook at Old Atlanta has received this prestigious award from our peers,” said Jim Chapman, president and CEO of Jim Chapman Communities. “We designed the 55+ community for homebuyers who want to downsize without giving up quality and luxury. The location offers easy access to Johns Creek, as well as Avalon, North Point Mall and Ameris Bank Amphitheater. It’s close to Lake Lanier, several golf clubs, premier medical facilities and Chattahoochee Pointe Park. And, with major thoroughfares nearby, it’s a straight shot to downtown Atlanta or to the north Georgia mountains. We’ve had an excellent response from homebuyers, and it’s extremely rewarding for The Overlook at Old Atlanta to be honored by the GAHBA with one of the organization’s most sought-after awards.”
