NOTES
21,032 unit s proposed did not materialize, of which 13,764 were included in the previous report of Jan. 15, 1969, and 7,268
3dd itional units are listed - in this report, as Lost.
(The majority of these losses was due to disapprovals of sites, a large
p ortion of which were denials of zoning petitions.)
In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and getting other approvals on sites proposed for large multi-family development s,
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 s mall projec t s, to include small developments on scattered si.tes is strongly · advocated, for future development .
1.
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 Ins urance Company financed 75 new single family low-cost houses in the Thoma sville Urban Renewal project area
u n der the Flffi 221 d(2) insured mortgage program. Equitable made $1,000,000 available to Atlanta Mor tgage Brokerage Co. for
fin ancin g low-cost homes at favorable rates.
Interest is still increasing in development of home o wn ership housing.
No proposal ha d 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 Lond on Towne Houses, a 221 d(3) co-op devel opment now under construction, is approaching this, with its one
bedr oom unit selling at $69 per month. The City's greatest heed is in the $30-$50 per month rental-purchase range, which
appear s to hav e little chance of accomplishment, without substartial governmenta l subsidy.
P re fab di stributors and conventional builders have interesting p otential houses to offer but, because of fear of local Codes
diff iculties, are currently erecting very few single-f am ily houses in Atlanta to sell in the $10,000-$15,000 range for wh ich
the re is a strong d e ma nd and market. Perhaps the greatest difficulty is availability of suit ably priced land within the City
Lim its. Economics for this price-range sales housing requires land which will cost the developer not more than $1,500 per
unit. A 5,000 sq o ft o lot is considered amp le for this type house which should reduce land costs by 33 1/3%; most houses in
th is price r ange are cuirently being erected in Atlanta on R-5 lots having a minimum size of 7,500 sq. ft.
I ~ perial Homes of Griff in, Ga., manufacturers of pre-cut sectionalized frame houses, has developed a 24'x36', 3 bedroom & bath
hous e desig ned to sell , to the occupa nt for $8,000 to go on his land; and is developing a 4 bedroom & bath house to sell
sim il arly f or about $ 9,000. National Homes of Lafayatte, Ind . is erecting 200 units of pre-built, 4 bedroom, bath and½
u n its in Chicago and is doing the site planning and landscaping. This firm wa s recently successful bidder, throu gh design
compet ition, for construction of 600 medium and low-income housing units on the Honor Farm #1 site.
The nonprofit Greater At lanta Housing Development Corporation is now in business. The CACUR's nonprofit corporation to
rehabilitat e existing unit s under 221 (h) has completed its first group o f 5 houses in Lindwood Park. Vanguar d Housing Corp.
h 3 s obtained FHA commitment for r eha bilitation of 6 units under 221 (h) •· Mor ris Brown College is another such sponsor .
North West Community Forum has also filed applications for 4 projects under 221 (h)
I n formation is welcomed as to corrections, additions or deletions of material contained in this report.
