A development team has been selected by the Atlanta Housing Authority Board of Commissioners to redevelop the 12-acre former Herndon Homes site alongside Northside Drive, about a mile north of the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The developer will create a mixed-income community.

Atlanta Housing Authority will partner on the project with a development team made up of Hunt Development Group and Oakwood Development Group.

The selection serves as the Atlanta Housing Authority’s first new master developer procurement in more than 10 years, AHA said in a prepared statement.

According to AHA:

The Hunt/Oakwood team emerged as the leader after a four-step process that included a Request for Qualifications issued in March 2015, followed by a Request for Proposals.

AHA said it received eight proposals, and narrowed the field based on a number of factors that included the teams’ strength and experience, financial capacity, and proposed vision.

AHA says it also considered the teams’ plans to pursue subcontracting opportunities with minority and women business enterprises, as well as local businesses and community residents.

This is great news for AHA, Downtown, and Westside areas as more residents and tax generating development on a former public housing, now vacant site is a positive.

Is the project parcel the land between Gray St. NW, John St. NW, and Cameron Madison Alexander Blvd. NW?

Yes, it is on the land that was the alternative site for MB Stadium.

I just hope it is not a garden-style development, like many other redeveloped AHA communities.

Also on the ABJ site is a story about the beginning of a 26 acre residential project at the future northwestern Beltline. It says "planned," but the picture looks like it's already under construction. The Beltline has sparked so much new construction all around it. I just wish it's construction could go faster.

Downtown could really make a move with nice affordable prices with project. The last could truly be first.

Yes, the development is on English St. according to company information. This is the same guy who is doing West Highlands. I can't speak for the quality of his homes, but I like his style. He creates new street grids with small lot home sites. He utilizes varied home styles, sidewalks, trees, and green spaces. They mostly equip the homes with rear garages and back "alley" access points, though some do have front garages. All in all pretty nice and balanced.
