NOTES
A.
8,266 units proposed did not materialize, of which 7,166 were shown in the previous report of Hov. 15,
current report, as Lost.
1 67 and 1,100 additional unit s are listed i n
(The majority of these losses were due to disapprovals of sites and proposed r ezoning.)
B.
Proposed locations for low-cost housing are being coordinated with the Plannine Dept., for adequacy of Community Facil ities, existing or proposed.
Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Dept. for a dequacy of school facilities.
c.
A team from Savannah composed of lfr. Leon J. Meyer, Architect, A.I.A. and Mr. John O. McNamara, Jr., Consulting
presentation in Atlanta of a "patent. applied for" low-cost housing method of construction with flexible design,
quickly on site, employing mostly untrained labor and at a savings of 10%-15% under conventional construction.
presentation to the Construction and Design Panel, Housing Resources Coimni ttee, for evaluation of the merits of
D.
The Travelers Insurance Company has agreed to finance 70 or more new single family low-cost houses in the Thomasville, Urban Renewal Proj e ct area under
the FHA 221 d {2) insured mortgage program.
E.
In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites propos ed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that
the Low-income Housing Program will have to l ean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial portion of the r equirements on small
scattered sites. Thus far, 597 single family sales houses and 2,854 rental units in duplexes and relatively small apartment developments, in this
category and mostly under conventional financing, have been and are being developed.
F.
No proposal had yet been made for construction of units (even eff iciency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50.00 per month, although the
London Towne Houses, a 221 d (3) co-op development now under construction, is pushing this close with its one bedroom unit selling f or $59. 00 per month.
The City' s greatest need is in the $30.00 - $50. 00 per month rental-purchase range.
G.
Attorney Blacla-,ell in Decatur has proposed a concrete 3 bedroom, 1 bath, 1,000 sq. ft. hous e which he claims can sell for $6,000, plus land cos t s, incl.
heating and air conditioning equipment.
H.
National Homes Corp . of Lafayette, Ind. placed on the market Feb. 1, 1967, a 800 - 900 S.F. (O.S. dimensions ) 3 bedroom, prefabricated, preassembled
panel, single family house plus a 96 s.F. (I . S. dimensions ) storage building manufactured by Arrow Metal Products Corp. , to sell under FHA 221 d ( 2).
Price includes plumbing, electrical, heating units, stove & refrigerator. House can be compl etely assembled -in 85 man hours ; 72 of these (with conventional plumbing ) are being ere cted (pre-sold) in the Thomasville Urban Renewal Area. Approx. 800 sq. ft. house i s priced a t $11,200; 900 sq. f t.
house is priced at $11,600. Adrian Homes Corp. has proposed a prefab to retail for about $7,SOO plus l an.d, f oundation, closing and possible tapping
f ees . Other prefab distributors and conventional builders have interesting potential houses to offer but are not producing single frunily houses in
Atlanta to sell in t he $10,000-~il2,500 range for which there is a strong demand and market in Atlanta . Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suitably priced land within the City Limits. Economics for this price range sal es housing require l and which will not cost the developer
more than $1500.00 per unit.
I.
Saul Gray is one of five partners in a Corporation which o,ms 280 new units off Bankhead at Elbridee St. , which he wants to sell, + a potential
development on the site for several hundred additional units. Area is already zoned A-1.
J.
Ralph L. Dickey of Atlanta has proposed a non-profit revolving f und enterprise to acquire subs t andard housing, renovate it and resell , primarily
throuGh private enterprise. CACUR recently f ormed a non-prof it corporation to rehabilitate existing units under 221 (h). Morr is Bro1-m College
is another such sponsor. North Hest Community Forum has also filed applications for 4 projects under 221 ( h ) .
