Wednesday, March 8, 2017

The groundbreaking ceremony for Phoenix House, the future site of a 69-unit affordable housing complex reserved for the homeless and mentally disabled, took place on Friday, March 3.

Leading the project are Invest Atlanta, The National Housing Trust Enterprise Preservation Corporation (NHT-Enterprise)—a Washington, D.C. non-profit affordable housing owner and developer—Tapestry Development Group, and 3Keys, Inc.

Invest Atlanta awarded a $500,000 Housing Opportunity Bond-CHDO loan in support of this project, which is another example of the investments being made in Atlanta’s Westside communities.

Councilmember Joyce Sheperd (District 12) and project partners were there to celebrate the launch of this $10.2 million redevelopment.

Three existing buildings on the Phoenix House property which will be rebuilt to feature 69 efficiency units, and two houses will be rehabilitated for continued use as tenant common space and property staff offices. Once complete, the Phoenix House will offer many great amenities to its residents, including a computer center, job training, supportive services for the special needs population, and access to mass transit at the nearby Oakland City MARTA Station.
