EQUITY IN DEVELOPMENT
In 2017, Atlanta Housing acquired the Civic Center, which will be redeveloped into a mixed-used, mixed-income livable, equitable community including 30 percent affordable housing. The project represents a major investment in affordable housing adjacent to commercial centers, retail and public transportation.
Affordable Housing Downtown (Area of Opportunity)
“Through its focus on affordable housing, the redevelopment of the Civic Center property will give families and working people the opportunity to live in an area with access to transit, employment and good schools. Moreover, this new development will be an asset to the neighborhood, further adding to the vibrancy and vitality of Midtown and Downtown Atlanta.” – Mayor Kasim Reed
