AUD, together with Atlanta Housing, the City of Atlanta, and other partners, is implementing a multiphase, multiyear comprehensive redevelopment initiative in the Thomasville Heights neighborhood that includes the former Thomasville Heights public housing site, as well as other nearby publicly-owned properties. AUD seeks a qualified partner for Phase I of the redevelopment initiative. Phase I represents an opportunity to break ground and develop the first new homes at the former Thomasville Heights location.

The Thomasville Heights redevelopment strategy is a centerpiece to supporting a whole, healthy Thomasville Heights neighborhood. Phase I should set a high standard for housing quality and urban design and provide a strong starting point to establish the housing market for both owner-occupied and rental homes in the redevelopment area. This initial phase should appeal to low-, middle-, and upper-income families. The large concentration of public ownership in the neighborhood ensures that market value spurred by the redevelopment will be captured and directed toward future AUD investments in affordability, neighborhood health, and community development.

AUD requests submissions from qualified respondents demonstrating the technical and financial capacity required to deliver a large-scale redevelopment of the current Midtown Fire Station 15, located at 170 10th St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309 in Midtown.

This Property, initially constructed in 1986, currently functions as an essential fire safety facility in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. Fire Station 15 is pivotal in facilitating efficient access and maneuverability for emergency vehicles, ensuring ongoing safety and security for the station’s service area.  AUD's primary goal of this project is to redevelop the property into a dense, residential tower, incorporating both market and affordable units, with a newly built fire station on the ground floor. AUD envisions the development of an inclusive community that addresses the housing needs of Midtown while enhancing the quality of fire and emergency services for surrounding neighborhoods.

How to submit proposals to AUD for evaluation.

AUD has several incentive programs for which property owners and developers can apply. These programs can be leveraged separately or may be layered within the same project. For projects seeking multiple incentives or to learn about programs offered by other City-affiliated organizations, use the City of Atlanta's Multifamily Incentive Common Intake Form.

For projects seeking only a Private Enterprise Agreement, see the PEA section below.

Private Enterprise Agreements (PEA)

Private Enterprise Agreements are partnerships between private-sector property owners and AUD to provide affordable housing by offsetting rent reductions with property tax exemption on low- and moderate-income units. AUD, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Atlanta Housing, is authorized to create PEAs by Georgia Code §8-3-3 ff.
State law requires that AUD maintain an ownership stake in projects using a Private Enterprise Agreement. AUD requires a ground lease agreement (where AUD is the ground lessor) to fulfill this requirement.

Submission Requirements
PEA submissions must include:

  • Pro forma of the project, modeling compliance with the PEA affordability requirements
  • Documentation that substantiates quoted market rents (ex. Rent rolls, market study, broker opinion)

In addition to its basic affordability requirements, AUD values projects that improve the quality of life of residents and address various priority groups, geographies, and policies. Submissions should also include a project summary that describes any of the following:

  • Geographical, social, and economic benefits of this project to the surrounding community.
  • How the project serves target populations (seniors, youth up to age 25, families with school-aged children, those at-risk of or experiencing homelessness).
  • Resident services, anti-displacement, eviction diversion programs, or innovative approaches to property management.

Property owners must email their submission to AUD at An AUD project manager will confirm receipt and review the proposal in three to five business days. Submissions not received in this email box may be delayed.

Mezzanine Financing thru the Housing Production Fund (HPF)

HPF is a mezzanine debt product that provides 15-20% of construction costs to a project at low rates. HPF is designed to revolve every 3-5 years via refinance. HPF is used primarily for AUD’s public land developments and AUD’s funding is currently fully allocated.  AUD will announce availability of funding if it becomes available.

Permanent Low-Cost Financing

AUD, in collaboration with other city-affiliated agencies, intends to access low-cost permanent financing through the municipal and tax-exempt bond markets, reducing cost-of-capital and debt coverage over the lifetime of the project. This program is still being established and there is currently no funding available. AUD will announce the availability of funding if it becomes available.
