Since the announcement of the finalists for Atlanta’s Affordable Housing Preservation Challenge (ATL Challenge) in January, Tapestry Development Group, Tristar, and Stryant Investments have been working to conduct due diligence, engage stakeholders, and otherwise move their proposals from “idea” toward “implementation.” Final proposals will be submitted in early May, and the overall winner of the ATL Challenge will be announced later that month.
Last week, we ran a series of blog posts so each finalist can make the case for their proposal – in their own words. They detailed the specific affordable housing preservation needs they plan to address, potential barriers, and how their proposal will strengthen the affordable housing preservation “infrastructure” of the Atlanta region. You can find those posts at:
- Wednesday, April 5: Atlanta Affordable Housing Preservation Program (capital for rehabilitation), by Andrea Rattray (Tapestry Development)
- Thursday, April 6: 3Star Communities – A Community Impact Model, by Margaret Stagmeier (TrisStar)
- Friday, April 7: Increasing Affordability through Spatial Efficiency and Zoning Flexibility, by Atticus LeBlanc (Stryant Investments)
As always, please feel free to respond to these proposals or raise questions through the comments field on the individual posts or the Discussion Page.
