Project would include various housing types, retail, public spaces.
The 12-acre Herndon Homes property along Northside Drive near the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is planned to become the Atlanta Housing Authority’s (AHA) first new "master developer procurement" in over 10 years.
The former Atlanta public housing project was demolished in 2010.
Hunt Companies, Inc. announced on July 19 that the AHA Board of Commissioners has chosen Hunt Development Group along with Atlanta-based Oakwood Development Group to redevelop the property.
The $150 million masterplan calls for a development of a mixed-use, mixed-income "urban community" which would include various housing types, retail, and public spaces. The project would feature approximately 700 units, a new fitness center and retail space.
“Hunt Companies is excited to have been chosen by the Atlanta Housing Authority as its partner in this extremely important project,” stated Chris Hunt, Hunt Companies CEO. “This project will allow Hunt to continue its commitment to developing projects that help improve community connections, help offer more jobs for the local area and offer quality of homes for all.”
