Reynoldstown Senior

Affordable Senior Living is Coming to Reynoldstown

In April of 2015, ground was broken on the Atlanta BeltLine's first affordable housing units targeted toward residents aged 55 and up. The 70-unit residence was made possible by a partnership between Mercy Housing and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. Construction is now underway - check back for updates!


Reynoldstown Senior will be reserved for residents ages 55 and up and is being built just a few blocks from the Atlanta BeltLine. With this proximity comes a host of amenities, including access to the future Eastside Trail extension that will go from the existing trail to Memorial Drive. It will also have direct access to streetcar transit, walkability to neighborhood parks, restaurants, and events at the future Reynoldstown stage.

The affordable housing units are part of a broader multi-faceted housing strategy that works toward creating housing for a mix of incomes and ages around the Atlanta BeltLine. Reynoldstown Senior allows for “aging in place,” to help ensure senior citizens are able to stay in the neighborhoods they call home.

The Power of Partnerships

The new affordable housing units are a result of years of work in partnership with Mercy Housing, the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, the City of Atlanta, Invest Atlanta, and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. The Atlanta BeltLine contributed $1.5 million to this project, and to date, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and Invest Atlanta have invested more than $3.5 million in Reynoldstown affordable  housing projects utilizing the BeltLine Affordable Housing Trust Fund.
