What is going on with the Fort McPherson development on Lee Street in south west Atlanta? Strategically located between the Oakland City and Ft. McPherson/Lakewood MARTA rail stations, this former Army Base was finally beginning to show signs of development four years ago. That is when Tyler Perry purchased the majority of the property and the remaining (approximately) 145 acres has been slowly planned for community use with community input.
It was beginning to look as if the Oakland City/Ft Mac communities, with an average household income of less than $20,000, were about to get a “good deal”. Now, the project that includes lots of community input, has come to a halt.
In the Saporta Report, Maria Saporta weighs in and is asking City Hall some really tough questions. I welcomed the opportunity to add my two cents. See her article on the link below:
Be sure to leave your thoughts about what could be the best project for Atlanta residents because 60% of the housing units are slated to be affordable!
