The Atlanta Beltline has miles to go, both in terms of construction of the 22-mile loop-to-be and fulfilling its goal of producing and preserving 5,600 units of affordable housing along the popular multi-use trail.
Officials are working to ensure the areas that haven’t undergone the same growth spurt as Eastside Trail neighborhoods can remain (relatively) affordable for longtime residents. In July, there were 582 affordable housing units among seven residential developments in the Beltline’s pipeline.
Now that number has jumped to nearly 1,000 — 993 affordable units, to be exact — spread across 11 different projects in places like Reynoldstown, Bankhead, Peoplestown and others.
Take a look at the updated list below.
