Thrive Sweet Auburn
McShane Construction Company was selected to build Thrive Sweet Auburn. Located just east of downtown Atlanta, the new mixed-use development will combine 117 affordable apartment units with 11,400 square feet of ground-floor office space.
Affordable at 30 percent to 80 percent of Area Median Income (AMI), units will be offered in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations. Twenty-three of these units will be permanent supportive housing for individuals and families transitioning out of homelessness. All units will incorporate full kitchens with dishwashers, refrigerators, microwaves and ovens.
The property will offer nearly 4,000 square feet of amenity space, including community rooms, wellness rooms, an outdoor pavilion and a community garden. Tenants will also have access to 75 parking spaces.
The four-story building will feature podium construction with office, amenity and parking space on the first floor and apartments on floors two through four. The exterior will consist of an attractive mix of brick, metal panels and fiber cement siding.
Designed to achieve National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Bronze Level Certification, the development will integrate several sustainable elements.
