Central Albany neighborhood a step closer to revitalization

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Albany housing authority is one step closer to a complete overhaul for a central Albany neighborhood.

The developers are Hunt Companies and Boulevard Group who will come up with detailed plans for what they'll call The Oaks at North Intown.

A major part of the plan will be replacing the McIntosh Homes public housing project.

"We intend to as part of the plan demolish some of these units behind us of McIntosh homes and golden age homes and replace those with mixed income housing that will be income tax credible as well as market rate eligible right here in this same area," says Executive Director Dan McCarthy.

The housing authority will get public input tomorrow at the Hines Family Life Center.

Albany is a finalist for a federal choice neighborhood grant that could provide tens of millions of dollars for the project.
