A new mixed-use, affordable-housing development with 108 residential units and 11,500 square feet of commercial space is underway in Atlanta.
Sweet Auburn Grande is planned for the intersection of Auburn Avenue NE and Jesse Hill Jr Drive NE.
According to a recent building permit application filed with the City of Atlanta, the development will include amenities and garage parking for residents.
Sweet Auburn is a historic neighborhood of Atlanta known for being the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. Sweet Auburn was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976.
Invest Atlanta announced last fall that a grant of up to $4 million from the Eastside TAD will would finance the construction of Sweet Auburn Grande. In their 2022 annual report, the organization described the project as “a live-work development with new multifamily housing units and affordable commercial space.”
Gorman & Company – a Wisconsin-based development, construction and property management company – is the team behind the project. The company expanded into the Georgia market in 2019 and is also the team behind Residences at Westview, a 60-unit affordable-housing project.
