Total Potential









Uni-structure - Daniel W. Gaskin; Magnolia Corporations - David S. Wolff; and Mod (Knox Mobile Homes), W. F. Silmore, are all very much interested

in installing prefab mobile homes in Atlanta as manufactured. They have thus far been prevented from doing so because of local Code requirements.

These still appear to be the best possibility for getting low-cost single family homes in Atlanta. No interest in this field has been show

by private enterorise through conventional Construction. Southern Stress-Plus, Inc. - John D. Johnson recently exhibited at Lenox Square a

patented panel (assembled on site) prefab house to sell, installed on purchasers lot, as follows: 1 BRm = $5,000.00; 2 Bam ~ $5,800.00; 3 BRm - $6,600.00.

Proposals are also reviewed periodically with the School Dept. for adequacy of school facilities,

The Foundation for Cooperative Housing, which developed Eastwych Village and Cambridge Square (both in DeKalb County), are sponsoring the 200 unit

In view of difficulties encountered in zoning and setting other avprovals on sites proposed for large multi-family developments, it is apparent that
the low-income housing program will have to lean heavily on Developers and Builders providing a substantial vortion of the program on small scattered
sites. Thus far, 555 single family houses (Item F-12) and 2,)));0 units in duplexes and relatively small apartment developments, all under conventionel
financing, are in this category.

No proposal has yet been made for construction of units (even efficiency or 1 bedroom) to rent or sell for as low as $50.00 per month. The City's
greatest need is in the $30.00 - $50.00 per month-rental purchase range.
