"We're excited to open Sherwood Crossing, a classic townhome community, where residents can enjoy the vibrant lifestyle of Duluth city square and easy access to all the rich employment, cultural and entertainment amenities available in the area," said Susie Anderson, Century Communities' Atlanta Division manager.

Sherwood Crossing is a townhome community that features three floor plans ranging in size from 2,234 to 2,295 square feet starting in the low-$300,000s. These homes present choices of 3 bedrooms, 2.5-3.5 baths and 2-garage bays. Outdoor amenities include green space, a pavilion, fire pit and benches.

The City of Duluth is a suburb of Atlanta located north of Interstate 85 and home to the Gwinnett Civic and Cultural Center, Infinite Energy Center, Hudgens Center for the Arts and the Red Clay Center.

Today, Duluth enjoys a thriving business district, eclectic shopping and dining and the ever-popular annual Fall Festival. CBS Travel Editor Peter Greenberg, in citing Duluth's award-winning Town Green, called the city, "a stellar example of how creating a beautiful public space can build community spirit."
