Atlanta Street public housing redevelopment likely to begin next year
Project will demolish 131 units, replace with 260 affordable and market rate units
Plans for redevelopment of Gainesville's Green Hunter Homes on Atlanta Street call for relocating hundreds of residents so that Gainesville’s largest housing project can be demolished to make room for new apartments.
With one final signoff, the 131-unit public housing projects on Atlanta Street in Gainesville will be demolished and replaced with more than 260 affordable and market-rate units. The entire complex, under the banner Walton Summit, will be redesigned and will include a large green space in the center, as well as a community center and access to resources serving low-income residents. City Council is set to give formal approval May 3 for the project.
