The hip and affordable Uptown Augusta, Georgia neighborhood offers primarily condominium, loft, and apartment style living options. In comparison to the popular downtown Augusta area, this new and fresh urban community offers many of the same advantages including nearby shopping, dining, transportation, and entertainment but at the same time offers trendsetters and real estate investors an affordable and different choice in urban living. The Uptown community is located only minutes west of the Central Business District of Augusta and just minutes from the South Carolina border.
For those currently continuing their education at Paine College or the Medical College of Georgia or are thinking of attending one of these top-rated colleges, the Uptown area would be a convenient and excellent living choice. The community is pedestrian friendly, so residents can easily walk, jog, or bike to school.
The numerous medical facilities in and around Uptown not only provide thousands of jobs for area residents but also top quality medical care for the masses. Nearby hospitals and facilities include the University Healthcare System Hospital, Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, Walton Rehabilitation Hospital, and Select Specialty Hospital of Augusta. An important venue for sports, concerts, and events near Uptown is The James Brown Arena, named in honor of musician James Brown. This multi-purpose complex is home to the Augusta Mavericks, the Southern Indoor Football League, the Augusta River Hawks, and the Southern Professional Hockey League.
The Riverwalk Augusta, one of Augusta’s finest attractions is located just to the north along the Savannah River. The Riverwalk is popular for holiday celebrations such as St.Patrick’s Day and 4th of July, as well as events such as the Tour De Georgia – a 650 mile cycling event that ends in Augusta annually.
