Greetings from The Lamar!
It's been a busy and exciting spring here in Macon - another beautiful Cherry Blossom Festival in the books, another Mercer semester complete, and a lot of progress behind-the-scenes here at Macon's newest loft community, The Lamar.
With a handful of leases already signed and many more applications in the works for Fall 2015, we wanted to make sure our prospective tenants have all the information they need to envision life at The Lamar.
Here are a handful of updates on recent construction completions, upcoming events, and exciting Lamar news:
We believe that the best form of marketing is word-of-mouth, so we're going to help out our friends who refer their friends. Any non-tenant or Macon local who refers a friend to The Lamar and they sign a lease, we'll give you a $50 gift certificate to Rookery. If you're a Lamar tenant and your referral signs a lease, we'll give you an extra entry in our TV Giveaway.

BIG TV Giveaway:
Walking around The Lamar with empty walls got us thinking: these exposed brick walls are crying out for a BIG flat screen TV. Want to win one? Of course you do! Sign a lease between now and June 30th, 2015 and you'll automatically be entered to win a 50" flat screen TV for your new Lamar loft. One lucky winner will be selected this Fall and will be kicking off the football season in style!

Our builders have been hard at work and The Lamar's one and two bedroom lofts are finally coming to life. This week's walkthrough was an immediate "wow moment." Up to this point, it's been difficult to visualize each loft layout - we've only had blueprints and framing to guide us. However, in the past week, the progress has been amazing.
The walls have been Sheetrocked and painted white, all of the shower/tub combos have been installed, the windows have been cleaned and restored, light fixtures are being installed, and currently, the bedroom doors are being framed, installed, and painted. The moment we stepped foot inside a loft we could immediately picture and feel how cool life at The Lamar will soon be. It won't be long until our crew installs the kitchen cabinets & appliances, granite countertops, and re-stain the historic heart pine wood floors.
Here are a couple photos from our walkthrough on Tuesday, May 12th:
Hard Hat Tours:
Being a historic building and unlike any other property in Macon, we've decided a model unit offsite wouldn't give life at The Lamar justice - each loft is unique with its own features, design, and layout. So, we've decided to provide exclusive one and two bedroom loft tours to give our current and prospective tenants an insider's look into their future home. Welcome to The Lamar Hard Hat Tours.

Retail Space #1:
Exciting news coming (very) soon regarding one of our retail spaces located in the lobby of The Lamar. We've got to finish signing a little paperwork, but our future tenants are going to LOVE what will be steps away from their loft! We've also had a handful of potential tenants view our 3,500+ sq. ft. Retail Space #2, so lots of exciting stuff in the works.
Our friends at Damaste Real Estate manage the perfect parking garage for our tenants: secure and centrally located on Cherry Street, just a few blocks from The Lamar. To rent a parking space with coded access please contact Damaste Real Estate at 478-741-0040.
That's it for now. Lots of exciting stuff on the horizon! Stay tuned.
