A new transit-oriented development in downtown Atlanta will provide 117 affordable housing units as well as commercial space for offices and workforce training. Housing advocates say the project will provide much needed housing for low-income residents in the core of the city.

The approximately $20 million project named Thrive Sweet Auburn is being developed by nonprofit organizations Mercy Housing Southeast and Project Community Connections Inc. at 302 Decatur St. Located in the Sweet Auburn neighborhood, the development will be near the King Memorial MARTA Station, Grady Memorial Hospital and Georgia State University.
