Stafford Properties, the creator of Terminal South, is working to rezone the land directly behind the property to bring a 350-unit multi-family development to the community. We received majority votes from both neighborhood associations, the Peoplestown Revitalization Corporation, and the Peoplestown Neighborhood Association, and a “YES” from the NPU zoning committee. Unfortunately, there is a small but vocal group of people who believe that their desires outweigh the majority of the voices within the neighborhood.  

 

 

QUICK FACTS:

  • 1111 Ridge Avenue is currently zoned for industrial use only.

  • The City of Atlanta is in a housing crisis, and rezoning 1111 Ridge Ave will allow for additional multi-family housing- 15% of which will be affordable units. We are proposing 350 new units and 53 of those units will be affordable housing.

  • The proposed multi-family development WILL NOT displace any members of the Peoplestown community, 

  • The proposed multi-family development WILL support the neighboring Terminal South retail development through increased foot traffic. 

  • 1111 Ridge Ave is a highly contaminated site due to it being a former coal yard. Stafford has placed this land in the Brownfield Program to ensure the hazards are properly remediated to EPA standards.

  • Mixed income housing allows for more expendable income to flow into neighborhoods, supporting businesses that provide jobs, like the 200-250 jobs we're projecting to bring into Peoplestown via Terminal South. It also allows for affordable units to be in developments with more security and better amenities.

  • The members of the Peoplestown Redevelopment Board are fighting to keep this land zoned industrial. Stafford wants to transform this land from a kudzu covered wasteland to a vibrant commercial and living space for people of all income levels to live, work and enjoy.
