To date, 2,727 units have been created or preserved within the TAD – and another 1,706 in the BeltLine Planning Area – resulting in 4,433 affordable units within walking distance to the BeltLine corridor.
The Milton received $2 million from the BeltLine Affordable Housing Trust Fund. The developer, Prestwick Companies received a tax-exempt loan from Invest Atlanta’s Urban Residential Finance Authority, as well as funds from Partners for Home, project-based vouchers from Atlanta Housing, a tax credit allocation from the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, and additional funding from Truist, and Grandbridge.
In addition to creating or preserving affordable housing, ABI, in partnership with the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, aims to help eligible long-term residents in BeltLine neighborhoods remain in their homes through the Legacy Resident Retention Program, a grant program that pays any increase in property taxes through tax tear 2030.
