Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mr. Mayor:
We represent interests in Washington desirous of
providing a turn-key housing project in the southeast sectj on
of Atlanta in the general area of the Atlanta Federal Penitentiary.
The 30-acre tract, suitable for turn-key housing of
approximately 400 units, is under the same ownership as a
300-unit adjoining 608 apartment project built 15 years ago
as FHA insured housing.
The tract under consideration is
on the edge of the Negro housing expansion area and should
alleviate any possible issues that normally would arise
based on the location of the project.
The owner of the property will sell both the tract
and the apartments as a package. Mr. Gilbert Boggs, in
charge of turn-key housing for the Atlanta Housing Authority,
and his associates apparently consider the site unusually
attractive due to the fac t that it is in a neighborhood for
influx and will neither perpetuate "ghetto" housing or
perpetrate "block-busting ."
The Atlanta Housing Authority seems to be prepare d to
lease the existing apartme nts under HAA authority and to contract for a turn-key project on the adjoining land provided
necessary approvals are secured. A critical element in this
matter is the impact on the city of a project of this size
and will re quire the approval of the Mayor whi ch the Housing
Authority, I understa nd , is seeking .
�Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.

We hope that the circumstances are such that the
proposal will meet with your approval.
With best personal regards and all good wishes,
I am
erely
