The Housing Authority works to revitalize neighborhoods and expand homeownership opportunities for affordable and market-rate properties in partnership with developers, contractors, financial institutions, and government agencies.
Beginning in 2000, the Housing Authority of DeKalb County (HADC) purchased and developed 55 acres of unimproved land in East Atlanta to develop single-family homes. The land was subdivided into a 49 acre subdivision, Eastside Walk, previously known as Sugar Mill Creek, and a 5.1 acre subdivision known as Sugar Mill Oaks. In the initial three phases of construction, the Housing Authority partnered with local builders to develop single-family homes on 140 of 170 approved lots.
- Phase 1
- Phase 2
- Phase 3
In July 2016, HADC affiliate, Housing Development Corporation (HDC), completed new construction on three single family in-fill homes located minutes from downtown Decatur and close to shopping and public transportation. Each home is approximately 1,200 square feet and features three bedrooms, two baths, an attached garage, a back deck, washer/dryer connections, and an unfinished basement with modern finishes throughout. The single-family homes were built for homebuyers with income at 80% or less of the Average Median Income (AMI). Homebuyer assistance was made available through DeKalb County's HOME Program.
