The developers of Studioplex on Auburn, Dynamic Metal Lofts, and most recently the Haugabrooks Event Space on Auburn Avenue, will add a new mixed-used project to their growing Sweet Auburn District “equity project” portfolio in fall 2021 called The Front Porch.
Atlanta’s Historic District Development Corporation, in collaboration with the Partnership for Southern Equity, is developing The Front Porch mixed-used center in the residential neighborhood of Sweet Auburn, between Hilliard Street and Jackson Street.
The Atlanta Streetcar aligned project features 13,000 square feet of apartment rentals, an additional 18,600 square feet of multifamily space for sale and 38,000 square feet of rentable retail space on Auburn Avenue.
Franklin Street has been tapped to lease the retail space.
The equity element of The Front Porch, according to Chenee Joseph, executive director of HDDC, has to do with continuing the legacy of “strengthening, revitalizing and preserving the identity and history of our communities through equitable and sustainable development.”
“We have a solid track record in the neighborhood,” Joseph’s statement continues.
“We are excited to continue our commitment to the revitalization of Sweet Auburn and the Old Fourth Ward with the development of the Front Porch, which we hope will quickly become the gathering place for our community.”
