Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms joined other city officials on June 9 to break ground on Adair Court, a 91-unit mixed-income senior rental community is being developed by Woda Cooper Companies, Inc. and Parallel Housing, Inc.
The $15 million development is located at 806 Murphy Ave. between the MARTA West End station, Adair Park, and the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail.
“Adair Court provides affordable housing that targets one of our city’s most vulnerable populations – our seniors,” said Bottoms. “This development and others like it are a direct result of the city’s concerted efforts to secure affordability and preserve legacy residences with the help of Invest Atlanta and the Atlanta BeltLine.”
The development will consist of two buildings with one- and two-bedroom units for seniors aged 55 years and above. Nineteen of the units will be reserved for residents earning up to 50 precent of the area median income (AMI) and 58 for residents earning up to 60 percent AMI. Fourteen units will be offered at market rate with no income restrictions.
Along with open concept living spaces, including seven designed for those with disabilities, Adair Court will have a multipurpose community room, fitness center, computer room, laundry facilities, community garden and a covered gazebo surrounded by a native species landscape.
The location of Adair Court is within walking distance from the MARTA West End station, directly adjacent to Adair Park, as well as in close proximity to many retail stores, banks, restaurants, churches and health care services.
“Opportunities for development near the Atlanta BeltLine and MARTA provide communities connections to transportation, services, as well as commercial and cultural activities,” said Atlanta BeltLine CEO Brian McGowan. “Adair Court contributes to southwest Atlanta’s equitable access to resources throughout the city.”
