Two new housing developments will be unveiled Wednesday in east Macons Fort Hill neighborhood.
A partnership between River Edge Behavioral Health Center and the city of Macon has transformed a blighted block of the community into Second and Third Neighborhood.
The work caps a three-year, $4.9 million revitalization and redevelopment effort in Fort Hill, off Emery Highway, that created 38 new units of affordable housing and more than 100 construction jobs.
Second Neighborhood is a 10-unit complex of affordable housing for those at risk of or experiencing homelessness and who have special needs. The Department of Housing and Urban Development awarded a $1.1 million grant to build the homes.
Third Neighborhood, a mixed income development, is a 10-unit complex built with $1.5 million Neighborhood Stabilization funds made available to the city of Macon.
Second and Third Neighborhood are built around River Edges initial development, First Neighborhood, which includes 18 units built with $2.3 million awarded by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.
