"Johnson has a proven track record developing unique large scale urban and suburban multifamily communities that build on our national expertise and will accelerate our Atlanta market expansion."

An industry veteran, Bazzel previously served as the Vice President of Development for Wood Partners, where he was responsible for all phases of multifamily and mixed-use deals.

"Atlanta is my home and I'm extremely excited to continue to play a role in the urban renaissance taking place in our city," Bazzel said.
