Down Payment Assistance And Low Monthly Payments on New Two-Bedroom Lofts For Those Making Under $68,000Early Registrants Will Increase Their Chances of Being Chosen in The Drawing of Less Than 30 Homes on Saturday, December 10.

ATLANTA — As part of its mission to create affordable workforce housing, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) purchased the former “Triumph Lofts” development from a receivership to provide critically-needed affordable for-sale housing in an increasingly desirable part of the city. The development, now named “Lofts at Reynoldstown Crossing,” is located at the intersection of Chester Avenue, Memorial Drive and the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, just north of I-20 and Glenwood Park. The new highly-appointed, spacious two-bedroom, two-bath lofts will be sold in a one-day sale event featuring a drawing of qualified buyers making under $68,000 – the Atlanta area median income – on Saturday, December 10. The one-day drawing will provide an equitable way to give access to this incredible homeownership opportunity for people who might otherwise be unable to purchase intown property. Applicants must register by Wednesday, December 7, and early registrants will increase their chances of being chosen during the drawing.

“This is an unmatched opportunity for us to be able to provide new affordable homes right on the Atlanta BeltLine, in the historic Reynoldstown neighborhood,” said Brian Leary, president and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. “For the homeowners at the Lofts at Reynoldstown Crossing, the Atlanta BeltLine is their backyard – one more demonstration of moving the vision to reality.”

Eligible homebuyers will receive up to $60,000 in down payment assistance, which creates a very affordable first mortgage. Monthly payments — from $900 per month* — will be much cheaper than renting new two-bedroom apartments in the area. Of those homes, three will be part of a Community Land Trust (CLT), ensuring that their affordability will be permanently preserved. The CLT homes will be targeted to City of Atlanta and Fulton County teachers and first responders with up to $100,000 in down payment assistance available.

All homes at Lofts at Reynoldstown Crossing are new two-bedroom, two-bathroom lofts featuring high-quality finishes and stainless appliances. The development also features a pool, hot tub, electric car charging station, fitness center, club room, rooftop deck and controlled access entrance, in addition to its highly-desirable location on one of Atlanta’s greatest amenities, the Atlanta BeltLine.

The Sales Center, located on site at 890 Memorial Drive, will be open daily beginning Thursday, November 10 at 10 a.m. There will be a series of events and open houses to show these homes to the public over the next several weeks leading up to the one-day sale event on Saturday, December 10, including: • Saturday, November 12 to Sunday, November 13: First Open House Weekend featuring Yumbii food truck, a pool-side DJ, giveaways and more.• Saturday, November 19 to Sunday, November 20: Second Open House Weekend featuring a V-103 live remote with food, games and prizes, Slider U food truck, a pool-side DJ, giveaways and more.• Saturday, December 10: One-Day Sale Event featuring a drawing for qualified buyers.
