Kole Management Company Acquires Atlanta Area Apartment Community, Heritage at Riverstone

(SAVANNAH, GA) Kole Management Company (KMC), a Savannah-based real estate investment and management company, has acquired Heritage at Riverstone, a 240-unit apartment community in Canton, Ga.

Heritage at Riverstone is the sixth apartment community acquired by KMC outside Savannah and is the first apartment community in the greater-Atlanta region. KMC also owns and operates seven apartment properties in Savannah, Garden City and Richmond Hill. Collectively, KMC owns and operates about 2,500 total apartment units.

Heritage at Riverstone, a class A gated property built in 2001, features one-, two- and three-bedroom units with a variety of upscale features including vaulted ceilings, garden tubs, walk-in closets and built-in bookshelves. The landscaped 22-acre property includes a fitness center, a pool with a sundeck and stone cabana, a picnic pavilion and private garages available for rent.

KMC plans to make a number of significant improvements that include adding a fireplace to the pool cabana, installing a fire pit, a pet grooming station and dog park and building a community room with roll-up doors adjacent to the pool.

Canton is located about 40 miles northwest of Atlanta in Cherokee County, which is the fourth fastest growing county in Georgia and boasts an award-winning public school system with four STEM (science technology engineering and math) academies.

Heritage at Riverstone is a fabulous opportunity for KMC,” said company president Jeff Kole. “It’s a beautiful, residential-style community in a high growth area with excellent schools and high-end retail shopping. We’ll be selectively improving the property, which will result in a top quality living environment for our residents.”

Trevor Hess of Junkluggers of the Coastal Empire to Address the Leaders of More than 45 Savannah/Chatham Community-Based Organizations
A Caring Alternative to Traditional Junk Removal: How a Business Model Can Support a Nonprofit

(SAVANNAH, GA) Trevor Hess, who owns Junkluggers of the Coastal Empire, will be the keynote speaker at the Working Families Network meeting Thursday, Feb. 1, in Savannah. Hess will discuss the benefits of developing a business model to support nonprofit organizations.

Trevor Hess Headshot

Trevor Hess

“Our goal is to donate first, recycle next and avoid landfills as much as possible,” Hess said. “We further believe we can help enhance lives in the community through donations.”

Hess and his wife recently opened Junkluggers, which he describes as Savannah’s eco-friendly and caring alternative to traditional junk removal, but already has established partnerships with several local causes and nonprofits, including Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Shelter and Second Harvest food bank. Plus, the company is committed to presenting monthly donations to local charities.

“We are striving to make more people aware of the services we’re able to provide to nonprofits,” Hess said. “By partnering with Step Up Savannah and the Working Families Network, we now have the outlet to pair items that people don’t want with people who need them.”

Kate Blair, development and communications director for Step Up Savannah, said Hess reached out to her asking if she might know of a need for office furniture.

“I sent an email to 60 local social service agencies, and we were immediately able to match those goods with a need,” Blair said. “This meeting will provide an avenue for Trevor to talk to the leaders of nonprofits about the services Junkluggers can provide to those organizations. His altruism comes from a genuine place.”

Hess only asks that organizations receiving donated goods provide a donation receipt to the customer within 14 days. So far, he said, he has been able to match needs with donated items from books to furniture and baby clothes to business attire.

The Working Families Network is a program of Step Up Savannah and it too aims to support organizations that provide services to low-income individuals. The collaborative of more than 45 organizations meets on the first Thursday of every other month.

Funded by foundations and governmental partners, Step Up Savannah has worked collaboratively on improving the economic mobility of Chatham Country residents since it was founded in 2008. For more information, contact Step Up Savannah at 912-232-6747 or visit stepupsavannah.org.

Enmarket Opens New Location in Swainsboro, Ga.

(SWAINSBORO, GA) Savannah-based Enmarket is pleased to announce the opening of a new full-sized convenience store at 609 S. Main Street in Swainsboro. The 4,300-square-foot market features a variety of healthy and flavorful food options and provides 20 fueling positions that offer gasoline, diesel, off-road diesel and ethanol-free fuel. This is a modified version of a new prototype for Enmarket, which will debut in 2018.

The store is a rebuild of an Enmark kiosk. Expansion to a full-size convenience store was made possible through the acquisition of an adjacent property. A wide selection of healthy “better-for-you” snacks, fresh fruit options, and a 28-degree beer cave with a wide selection of local craft beers are notable improvements to the former kiosk site.

Customers and commuters will also enjoy the convenience of Enmarket’s proprietary food concept, the Eatery, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Eatery customers can order from self-serve kiosks that help ensure order accuracy and speed of service by allowing the kitchen staff to focus on food quality and preparation. A large seating area allows customers to dine in. Menu favorites include hand-breaded fried chicken, fried fish and freshly made biscuits, along with grab-and-go salads, sandwiches, fruit cups and parfaits, which are all made fresh in the store’s kitchen.

Inside and out, the property features the fresh, clean design elements associated with the Enmarket brand, which was re-imagined from the iconic Enmark brand in 2015 to reflect the company’s broader fresh food and health commitments as well as its expertise in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of the convenience store industry.

“We’re excited to continue making customer satisfaction our number one priority by providing new fuel options along with high quality, freshly made food options to residents and daily commuters in the Swainsboro area,” said Enmarket President, Brett Giesick. “With this redevelopment and expansion of the Swainsboro store, along with our recent acquisition of Glennville-based Clyde’s Markets, our presence has expanded significantly in Georgia.”
