Contemporary Downtown Living


WDI had the pleasure of touring South Front Apartments this week, and all we can say is “WOW.” We couldn’t help but notice that we posted the press release on the development plans for the former Nesbitt Courts public housing project one year ago today. (Click here to read it!) We are so impressed with the progress that has been made in one year, and we wanted to share our experience with you.

The renovated buildings feature polished concrete floors and beautiful exposed brick walls in almost every room. Amenities available to all tenants include a rooftop deck with community garden, 24-seat theater, fitness center, outdoor saltwater pool, community room with kitchen and gourmet coffee bar. The basketball court and “bark park” are currently under construction as well.

The gated community includes security cameras and courtesy officers monitoring the property after hours. Visitors after hours must be called in by residents, and each of the apartments comes with a security system that can be monitored through ASG Security.

Going Green
Each residence comes with a mini-split HVAC system, which provides programmable thermostats in almost every space. Energy Star rated stainless steel appliances are also incorporated. The concrete floors and sturdy, layered brick walls provide for both better insulation and a noise deterrent to outside traffic. The beautiful landscaping includes a rainwater irrigation system for more efficient maintenance as well.

The Apartments
There will be 216 total one and two bedroom apartments when the project is complete, and many residents are already in place. There are 10 floor plans to choose from, uniquely named after famous jazz singers. In addition to concrete floors/countertops, exposed brick walls and stainless steel appliances, the apartments feature custom cabinetry, patios, walk-in closets, granite countertops in bathrooms, garden tubs in some units, and much more. The vintage buildings combined with the contemporary feel make this community truly unique.

We are excited to see spaces already filling up, and are anticipating a 100% occupancy rate once the project is complete. If you are interested in pre-leasing an apartment, contact the office at (910) 251-2391 or visit their website at
