COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Housing Authority has awarded tax credits for the first phase of the redevelopment for Booker T. Washington apartments.

The first phase will consist of 100 units of housing for older persons at the site of the vacant Chapman Homes community. When the new apartments are completed, eligible residents will be relocated to the new community.

The second phase will consist of demolishing half of the existing apartments and developing 100 units of housing for families at the existing site. 

A third phase will consist of demolishing the rest of the apartments making way for potential commercial development along the intersection of Veterans Parkway and Victory Drive.

Construction of phase I should commence in late 2014 or early 2015 with completion and occupancy in late 2015 or early 2016.

The redevelopment of Booker T. Washington is possible because of the collaborative efforts of HACG, developer partner Columbia Residential Inc. and the Columbus Consolidated Government.  HACG appreciates the continued support of Mayor Tomlinson and Columbus City Councilors as HACG continues to revitalize aging public housing communities in Columbus.
