Greystar, a global leader in the investment, development, and management of real estate, including rental housing, logistics and life sciences, announced that Flats at General Time is now open and welcoming its first residents.

“Paying homage to the neighboring former clock factory, Flats at General Time offers high-end finishes and curated amenities, ensuring residents enjoy timeless comfort in their modern, well-appointed homes,” Craig Gearhart, Senior Director, Development at Greystar, said. “Tucked away from downtown and surrounded by nature, Flats at General Time provides an elevated living experience in Athens.”

Flats at General Time residences are available in studio, one- and two-bedroom floorplans ranging from 546 to 1,222 sq. feet. The 210 apartments have lofty 9- or 10-foot ceilings, hardwood-style plank flooring, Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, sleek black granite countertops, custom soft-close cabinetry, in-home full-sized washers and dryers, and private terraces or balconies. Other optional amenities include prep islands, double vanities, and powder rooms.

Located a mile north of Normaltown on Chase Street, Flats at General Time is across the street from the award-winning Terrapin Brewing taproom and close to the Sandy Creek Nature Center. Additionally, it is a straight shot to all of downtown’s retail and amenities.

Flats at General Time is located on part of the old Westclox factory site. The community’s interior design and architecture were created to align with the old Westclox building that is still standing.
