Seniors in the Adair Park neighborhood of southwest Atlanta now have access to a new mixed-income rental community near the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail following the highly awaited ribbon-cutting ceremony of Adair Court on November 15, 2019.
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, along with Department of Community Affairs Commissioner Christopher Nunn, Atlanta City Councilmember Joyce Shepherd, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. CEO Clyde Higgs, and Invest Atlanta CEO Dr. Eloisa Klementich, were among the City officials and housing leaders present to cut the ribbon of the 91-unit community. Developed by Woda Cooper Companies, Inc. and Parallel Housing, Inc, the $15 million property provides cutting-edge energy efficiency as well as close proximity to intown amenities including the MARTA West End Station, Adair Park, retail stores, restaurants, and health care services.
Geared towards seniors aged 55 years and above, Adair Court offers nineteen of the units for residents earning up to 50% of the area median income (AMI) and 58 for residents earning up to 60% AMI. Fourteen units are offered at market rate with no income restrictions. Seven apartments were designed for those with disabilities.

The opening of this development represents the culmination of numerous partners dedicated to improving affordable housing in Atlanta, including the City of Atlanta, the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, and Invest Atlanta, with the support of Bank of America Merrill Lynch. The 77 new affordable housing units bring the Atlanta BeltLine one step closer to achieving its goal of 5,600 affordable workforce housing units by 2030.
