“I am delighted with this professional recognition by my peers,” says Jim Chapman, president of Jim Chapman Communities and incoming president of the GAHBA. “2017 has been a stellar year for our company, and we are particularly honored to receive this year’s Gold OBIE for Best Community Service Project for our work benefiting Family Promise of Hall County, with special thanks to HomeAid Atlanta.”

Since February 2016, Jim Chapman Communities has started construction of more than six new neighborhoods throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area, including Sweet Briar Farms in Woodstock, Nestledown Farm in Cumming, The Overlook at Old Atlanta in South Forsyth (all age-targeted communities), and Boxwood at Vinings in Smyrna, the Homestead at Ridgewood Heights in Buckhead, and The Cottages at Horseshoe Bend in Roswell.
