St. John's Estates opens for business

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After two years of renovations, the public was invited inside a new subdivision in East Albany.  

City leaders, Greater Second Mount Olive Church members and new homeowners cut the ribbon at St. John's Estates Friday morning. The units were formerly military housing.

Now, the renovated homes are part of a starter sub-division for first-time homeowners, like newlyweds Abraham and Joesephine Robinson, who all of their lives have rented until now.

"Going and making your payment, it so exciting!" said said Abraham Robinson. "Even though you're making a payment, it's exciting because it belongs to you. It's your's and we just so proud of it, we are."    

The homes start at $74,000 and go up to $85,000. Only 30 homes have been completely renovated. Another 20 are almost finished, and in total, 319 units are part of the project.
