NEWS BRIEF: â€˜Teachers Villageâ€™ proposed for downtown Atlanta
Affordable housing set for Fairlie-Poplar district
Plans are underway for a 33-story high-rise in downtown Atlanta specifically designed as affordable housing for teachers and seniors. Teachers Village will occupy a 1/3-acre site bounded by Cone Street, Ted Turner Drive, and Walton Street downtown, a block from Centennial Olympic Park in the Fairlie-Poplar district.
Developer RBH Group describes the 375-foot-tall project as the first of its kind in Georgia in which the 427 units would be marketed to education employees and the elderly to create “a model for shared, intergenerational living where residents share social responsibility and live purposeful lives.” urbanize.city
