13,764 units proposed did not materialize, of which 13,260 were included in the previous report of Nov. 15, 1968, and 504
additional units are listed in this report, as Lost. (The majority, but not all, of these losses was due to disapprovals
of sites and proposed rezoning.)

Proposed locations for low-income housing are coordinated through the Plan. Dept. for adequacy of Community Facilities,
existing or proposed. Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Department for adequacy of school facilities,

The Travelers Insurance Company has financed 75 new single family low-cost houses in the Thomasville Urban Renewal project
area under the FHA 221 d(2) insured mortgage program. Equitable has made $1,000,000 available to Atlanta Mortgage
Brokerage Co. for financing low-cost homes at favorable rates. Interest is still increasing in development of home-owner-
ship housing.

In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multi-family develop-
ments, it is apparent that the Low-income Housing Program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing

a substantial portion of the requirement on small scattered sites by both Conventional and Federal assisted financing. Also
Public Housing in small projects, to include smail developments on scattered sites is strongly advocated, for future

No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as
$50 per month, although the London Towne Houses, a 221 d(3) co-op development now under construction, is approaching
this, with its one bedroom unit selling at $69 per month. The City's greatest need is in the $30-%50 per month rental-
purchase range, which appears to have little chance of accomplishment, with substantial governmental subsidy.

Prefab distributors and conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Codes,
difficulties are currently erecting very few single-family houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for which
there is a strong demand and market. Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the
City Limits. Economics for this price-range sales housing requires land which will not cost the developer more than $1,500 °
per unit, (A 5,000 sq. ft. lot is considered ample for this type house; most houses in thisprice range are currently being -
erected in Atlanta on R-5 lots having a minimum size of 7,500 sq. ft.}

Imperial Homes of Griffin, Ga., manufacturers of pre-cut sectionalized frame houses, has deveioped a 24'x36', 3 bedroom &
bath house designed to sell, to the occupant for $8,000 to go on’ his land; and is developing a 4 bedroom & bath house to
sell similarly for about $9,000, National Homes of Lafayatte, Ind, is erecting 200 units of pre-built, 4 bedroom, bath and
% units in Chicago and is doing the site planning and landscaping. This firm was recently successful bidder, through design
competition, for construction of 600 medium and low-income housing units on the Honor Farm #1 site.

The nonprofit Greater Atlanta Housing Development Corporation is now in business, The CACUR's nonprofit corporation to
rehabilitate existing units under 221 (h) has completed its first group of 5 houses in Lindwood Park. Vanguard Housing
Corporation has obtained FHA committment for rehabilitation of 6 units under 221 (h). Morris Brown College is another

such sponsor, North West Community Forum has also filed applications for 4 projects under 221 (h).
