Atlanta, Georgia
Mixed Use, Mixed income, HOPE VI redevelopment Across from Morehouse College and AU Center
 
Collegetown is a redevelopment of the former Harris Homes housing project in southwest Atlanta. The first phase is complete, and phase two is now under construction. It includes a mix of housing types – apartments, townhomes, live/work, senior/assisted living and detached single family homes. In addition to the live/work, there is a commercial center planned. A new water feature was created as part of Atlanta’s water quality initiatives. This development was among the first to utilize Atlanta’s mixed use ordinance. As a result, it contributed greatly to the refinement of the ordinance and the city’s understanding of new, urban communities.
