The Decatur Housing Authority had participated in a number of homeownership developments
targeting the development of a variety of housing types to meet the lifecycle needs
of people wanting to live in the city of Decatur.
A goal of the Authority is to expand the availability of housing for sale that meets
the needs of the Decatur community. To accomplish this, the Authority, and its related
non-profit, develops and sells single-family houses, townhouses and condominiums.
In most cases, a percentage of units are marketed at more affordable levels while
other units are available at market rate.
The Authority has developed one hundred twenty-two (122) single family homes and
townhouses since 1998. Seventeen (17) of these homes were sold at levels affordable
to a variety of income levels. These developments included: Commerce Place and Commodore
Square townhouses, the Village at Oakhurst, two (2) single family homes purchased
by public housing residents and the Talley Street Loft Condos. Taking advantage
of opportunities to develop different types of housing at different price points,
the Authority has and is attempting to offer opportunities for people to own a home
in Decatur at different points in their lifecycle.
The Housing Authority had completed a 90 unit, four story loft condominium development
with 15 units designed to be affordable. This development has all the features of
other developments in Atlanta, including hardwood floors, granite counter tops, fitness
center and pool.
The Housing Authority currently does not have any units/homes for sale.
