Progress is underway to consolidate Army Cyber Command operations into a 179,000-square-foot facility at Fort Gordon. The move will bring 1,500 active-duty military, government, civilian, and contractor jobs to the Augusta area and spark exponential revenue growth in the metropolitan area. While Augusta residents enjoy a better quality of life, military personnel will also be able to take advantage of the unmatched quality of life provided by the city of Augusta and surrounding areas.
Of course the transfer of so many military families to the area will create a large demand for single-family homes. Luckily, thanks to the great builders at Bill Beazley Homes, there is no shortage of new home neighborhoods in the Augusta Metro area.
Neighborhoods such as The Retreat at Storm Branch, Manchester, Southampton, and Hayne’s Station are ready to welcome the new surge of military personnel and their families. These neighborhoods offer a wide variety of floorplans to choose from in addition to their above-standard amenities. You can find a home in any price range, whether it is an impressive five-bedroom home in an estate style community or a smaller home at a great value.
