Atlanta Land Trust, an affordable housing organization, announced the development plans for a new affordable housing project on 1091 Tucker Avenue Northwest in 2019. The development was projected to be done by the end of the year and be completed within 90 days but was prevented due to a few plan changes, including partnering with a different developer.

The Trust recently filed a rezoning application to change the site plan to include an additional building. The zoning classification will remain the same. They are also working closely with the city to work with the regulations applied to buildings in Oakland City — a historical district. 

The site would include between 46 and 50 townhomes two or three stories high with a mix of between two and four-bedroom units. 58 parking spaces would be provided as well. The new residents would have plenty of green space, trails, dog walking areas, and grilling sites. Families who make less than 80 percent of the area median income (AMI) will be eligible for application. Construction will begin in 2021.
