ATLANTA, GA  – Multifamily developer and investment firm Pollack Shores Real Estate Group announced it purchased the land for The Everett, a new mixed-use apartment community located at 4255 Suwanee Buford Dam Road in Suwanee, Georgia. 

The development is located within walking distance of Suwanee Town Center, Brushy Creek Greenway and numerous other walking and biking trails in one of metro Atlanta’s fastest-growing suburbs.

Pollack Shores will break ground on The Everett this month, with first units scheduled to deliver in August 2020. 

The 276-unit community features a 2-acre greenspace and a mix of street-level retail and restaurants that complement the Town Center. 

The project addresses growing demand for walkable communities that blend urban-style amenities with suburban convenience.

According to a recent report by the Atlanta Regional Commission, Gwinnett County’s population continues to outpace the rest of metro Atlanta, with more than 400,000 people expected to move to the county in the next 20 years. 

Suwanee is a popular choice for many new residents, with the city making multiple appearances on CNN Money’s annual “Best Places to Live” national ranking.

“Pollack Shores focuses on building communities that join residents with vibrant neighborhoods like that of Suwanee,” said Steven Shores, President and CEO of Pollack Shores. 

“We believe these intentional connections to walkable retail, restaurants and greenspace offer a higher quality of life for our future residents.”

Brian Oates
“The ability for residents to enjoy immediate access to Brushy Creek Greenway and link up with more than 16 miles of Suwanee and Gwinnett County walking and biking trails is a differentiator,” said Brian Oates, Managing Director of Development at Pollack Shores. 

“We’re excited to become a part of the community, and anticipate great interest when pre-leasing commences next year.”

Less than a ten-minute walk away, the award-winning Suwanee Town Center and 10-acre green includes more than 100,000 square feet of retail space and 87,000 square feet of office space, along with large open areas, an interactive fountain and a performance stage with a 1,000-seat amphitheater.

HOLLYWOOD HILLS, CA -- Delivering a blend of contemporary sound and theatrics, Adam Lambert’s style has propelled him from an American Idol superstar singer-songwriter into an international celebrity, according to

Adam Lambert

 The house he bought in 2009 that overlooks the Sunset Strip, the same year he appeared on American Idol, reflects his personality along with his penchant for drama.

Leonardo DiCaprio

Now traveling the world almost full-time performing in tours and major guest appearances, the Grammy-nominated vocalist has recently put his West Hollywood Hills home on the market for $3.35 million.

Keanu Reeves
Enjoying a view of Los Angeles city lights, the 3,799-square-foot house is surrounded by lush greenery, is very private and has a disappearing glass wall that opens to a large terrace that includes an outdoor living room, fire pit and contemporary free-form pool and spa with various depths for lounging, swimming or sharing a glass of wine in the spa with friends.

Halle Berry
 The master suite has two balconies, a sitting room, a huge dressing room and marble bath with steam shower and soaking tub.

Night lighting brings added drama to the pool deck and a party atmosphere. Built in 1947, the three-bedroom, four-bath house has undergone impressive updates over time.

 In addition to formal and family rooms, there is a chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances and large island, custom wine storage and a separate studio with private entrance.
Hollywood Hills has been a celebrity magnet for as long as the film industry has existed and Lambert chose his home location well.

Neighbors include Leonardo DiCaprio, who bought two extra lots and built a huge basketball court, Keanu Reeves, Halle Berry and many of the up-and-coming stars.
Though Lambert hit the big time when he appeared on American Idol in 2009, his career began in 2001 as a cruise ship entertainer.

From there he performed in musical theater in California and on a European tour of Hair. With his appearances on American Idol, he began generating international recognition and toured with Queen + Adam Lambert, from which he is taking a short break.

In May, the group announced the expansion of The Rhapsody Tour to include seven stadium dates in Australia and three in New Zealand.

Tomer Fridman

In 2020, Japan and South Korea will be included. Between writing and recording, cutting albums, world tours and guest appearances filling in all the time spaces, it’s not surprising that he has no time to kick back in his Hollywood Hills home.

Singer-songwriter Adam Lambert is best known for his appearance on the talent series American Idol and his Grammy-nominated song, Whataya Want From Me,
