Apartments to replace barracks
Placeholder Image
Ground will be broken today for the unaccompanied personnel housing complex at Fort Stewart.
GMH Military Housing, the Army's private sector partner in its Residential Communities Initiative, is replacing barracks-style housing with an apartment-type complex for soldiers on post.
The community is intended to offer security and privacy while integrating modern amenities to improve living on post.  The 334-unit complex will be made up of 298 one-bedroom and 36 two-bedroom apartments.
Each apartment will have a full kitchen, living room and a washer and dryer.  The two bedroom units will have private bathrooms and private entrances.  Amenities will include community rooms, fitness center, pool, and outdoor sports and recreation facilities.
GMH Military Housing is being acquired by Balfour Beatty, a British firm, but a spokesman said the sale would have no effect on current projects.
