Best In Atlanta Real Estate Awards – Atlanta Business Chronicle

The Thrive Sweet Auburn Project is one the three finalists in the Best In Residential category of the Best in Atlanta Real Estate Awards.

The Thrive Sweet Auburn development brings 117 units of mixed affordable and supportive housing with 16,000 sf of co-working and office space to the historic Sweet Auburn district of Downtown Atlanta.  The project is a partnership between GVSA by Mercy Housing, one of the nation’s largest affordable housing developers. Mercy teamed with Project Community Connections, an outreach organization specializing in the permanent rehousing of families experiencing homelessness, to develop a solution to both the lack of cost-effective housing in the downtown area and to help families burdened by homelessness to achieve self-sufficiency.  The exterior design brings a distinctive character to the area with a mindfulness of the district’s history through its careful use and integration of materials and massing.  The interior design and layout of the spaces have beed developed to foster a sense of community by physically linking the new home office of PCCI with supportive housing above to form a codified bond between the residents and the supportive office.  Additional co-working space on site, the relationship between residence and productivity is further synergized through the creation of a wholistic live/work solution.
