NORTH DOWNTOWN ATHENS REDEVELOPMENT
ABOUT NORTH DOWNTOWN ATHENS
The North Downtown Athens Redevelopment, formerly Bethel Midtown Village and College & Hoyt senior community, will create a vibrant residential community at the northern edge of Downtown Athens, Georgia. Through a public-private partnership with the Athens Housing Authority and with support from Athens-Clarke County Unified Government SPLOST 2020 funding, the redevelopment will preserve deeply affordable housing, expand workforce affordable and market-rate housing downtown, create new city blocks, and connect the community to transportation, public greenspaces and the activity of downtown Athens.
Our team appreciates the input from residents and community leaders in shaping the vision for a healthy, sustainable, and affordable community. Learn more and follow our progress below.

The Redevelopment Plan was designed based on a year of community outreach with Bethel and College & Hoyt residents, North Downtown stakeholders, local leaders, and the broader Athens community.
Research, community engagement, and curative connectivity combine for a vision of thoughtful urban design.
The North Downtown Athens Redevelopment is a public-private partnership between Athens Housing Authority, Athens Clarke County Unified Government, and developers specializing in affordable and mixed-income housing. The project is supported by a team of design, technical assistance, and master planning consultants.
