Unicorp Construction has been chosen as the General Contractor to build the Class-A apartment community The Retreat at Fairhope Village located on Highway 98 in Fairhope, AL. The 240-unit property is located on Fly Creek Avenue and will feature upscale amenities, ample natural green space, and walking trails. “We’re excited to bring a first-class housing option that supports Fairhope’s vision of the walkable village concept,” said Stewart Speed, president of Leaf River Group and developer of The Retreat at Fairhope Village. “Our goal is to meet the housing needs of those who’ve decided to move to the area while keeping with the craftsman-style architecture that is seen throughout the city.” Some of the most stringent and comprehensive environmental protection techniques are being required for the site and Fly Creek. This includes phased construction installation of storm water best management practices and an environmental impact.
The Retreat at Fairhope Village will feature a clubhouse with gourmet kitchen, coffee bar, fitness facility with yoga room, resort-style saltwater pool, outdoor fireplace and grilling area, community walking trails, reading library, dog washing station, and bike racks. The residences will feature 9-10’ ceilings, garden tubs, walk-in closets, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes, and patios/balconies.
