Desired Services
The Hattiesburg University Foundation-Atlanta needs preliminary "Architectural Renderings" to present to various Stakeholders such as the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Housing Authority, the state of Georgia, Invest Atlanta, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and other Stakeholders, for possible funding/implementation and/or partnership(s). As a small 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt charity, the Hattiesburg University Foundation-Atlanta, without the concept of crucial architectural renderings for GILMORE TOWER @ DOWNTOWN ATLANTA, will not be able to bring the project to fruition, raise initial crucial capital, and secure implementation funding for the development and construction of the project. Thus, architectural renderings are crucial to the development juxtaposed our mission and benchmark in providing education, affordable housing, community and economic development.

Project Description

Herein Atlanta, Georgia, the Hattiesburg University Foundation-Atlanta is proposing GILMORE TOWER @ ATLANTA DOWNTOWN, a 10-to-20 story high rise tower consisting of 301 (plus or minus) 100% affordable housing units (with possible retail and restaurants / mixed use). According to the Atlanta Housing Authority, "There is a waiting list of over 20,000 seeking affordable housing in Metro Atlanta." (AHA 2017). However, with booming residential construction happening all over Atlanta, less than 5% of new projects are geared towards affordable housing. Because of crucial and emergency housing needs, the Hattiesburg University Foundation-Atlanta is currently pre-designing and pre-developing this proposed housing tower to address and meet the needs of affordable housing in Metro Atlanta.

Founded in 2003, the Hattiesburg University Foundation-Atlanta, is a 501 (c)(3), non-profit, tax-exempt charity. The mission of the organization is to "Serve humanity through human philanthropy via impacting the benchmarks of education, affordable housing, community and economic development implementing human kindness." Thus, GILMORE TOWER @ DOWNTOWN ATLANTA WESTSIDE is part of the Hattiesburg University Foundation's mission of designing, developing and distributing affordable housing in METRO Atlanta, falling under our mission of housing juxtaposed community/economic development.

GILMORE TOWER @ DOWNTOWN ATLANTA proposes to be built in Downtown Atlanta (Westside), an area that is undergoing major revitalization and development near/around the new Mercedes Benz Stadium, home of the Atlanta Falcons. Currently, there are millions of dollars juxtaposed incentives being allocated toward the area, and the Hattiesburg University Foundation-Atlanta is contributing its time and resources to ensure that crucial housing needs are being met for low-to-moderate income dwellers, who seek affordable housing options.

Outcome

The project is currently in its infancy, pre-stage/pre-development.
