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 apartments and townhome residences for families. Brookside Classic is pursuing LEED® certification, and the overall development will be one of Georgia’s first LEED®-ND communities. Incorporating these certified design and construction practices means that residents will enjoy enhanced walkability, increased energy savings and efficiency, and improved indoor air quality. Sustainable design is part of Columbia Residential’s goal to deliver the best-in-class properties to the markets we build in. 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.
