The Georgia Trust will demonstrate that it is feasible to rehabilitate and revitalize neighborhoods affordably and sustainably without displacing longtime residents.
Sustainable. Historic. Affordable.
About the West Atlanta Properties
The properties are located on or adjacent to Atlanta’s Beltline in historic Washington Park and Mozley Park, both of which are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The two houses contribute to the historical integrity and architectural qualities of those neighborhoods.
The Washington Park house was built in 1953 for Edward Johnson, who raised his family in the home. Located adjacent to the Westside Beltline, the house contains 1,500 square feet with three bedrooms.
The house in Mozley Park is a two-bedroom bungalow that was built in the 1920s and contains 1,300 square feet.
“We will use this project as an opportunity to educate the public that a neighborhood is more than its physical buildings—it is also the sense of community which is established by residents who have multigenerational relationships that are now being threatened by irresponsible real estate speculation.”Mark C. McDonald, President and CEO of The Georgia Trust
