Announcing New Uptown Neighborhood

We’re thrilled to announce our newest project, a new community in Fayetteville! Here’s the press release, sent out today:

Specialized Real Estate Group Plans Walkable Modern Neighborhood in Uptown Fayetteville

Specialized Real Estate Group plans to build a pedestrian-friendly, trailside apartment community in Uptown Fayetteville.  The site is across the street from Malco Theatres and Academy Sports + Outdoors and is bordered on the north by Joyce Avenue and on the south by Mud Creek.

Modus Studio was selected to design the neighborhood, which will feature around 300 apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms and around 12,000 square feet of commercial space.


Like Specialized Real Estate Group’s other projects, the Uptown Fayetteville development will utilize low-impact design and energy efficiency measures. Beyond environmental stewardship, the community is designed to support wellness. A community garden will be available to supply fresh produce, while trail connections and a bike repair station will allow residents to take full advantage of the trailside location.

The landscape design preserves two acres of forest along Mud Creek. The neighborhood will feature a salt-water pool and outdoor gathering spaces throughout the community. Private outdoor balconies, patios, and roof decks will invite residents outdoors.

“This community will have its own entry to the Mud Creek Trail segment of the Razorback Greenway,” said Jeremy Hudson, Specialized CEO. “The entire community is designed to foster connections to the surrounding neighborhood and encourage residents to enjoy not just the trail, but all the restaurants and shops within walking distance.”

“More people work in Uptown than any other area in Fayetteville,” Hudson said. “This neighborhood would be an ideal place to live for professionals at Washington Regional or Procter & Gamble, and you could bike to work more quickly than you could get there by car.”

Tenants for the commercial spaces are not yet set.

“We are looking for a mix of local stores, services, or restaurants that will complement the healthy atmosphere of the neighborhood,” said Corey Runnells, Specialized Vice President.  “This neighborhood will be a destination with a true sense of place, not just a place to live.”
