ATLANTA, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – Crown Bay Group LLC, along with its partners are pleased to announce the closing on their purchase of Wynview Apartments on Central Drive in Stone Mountain, a suburb of Atlanta. The property is well positioned near shopping and the recently opened Walmart superstore.

The garden style apartments are situated on a quiet street with park-like mature grounds and a beautiful swimming pool.
The new owners and their management are implementing a repositioning and capital improvement plan to enhance the property’s image. This will include rebranding the community to include new signage, logos, and a name change from Wynview Apartments to “Parc Central”.
