Ground-breaking for Forrest Heights

The Forrest Heights community in Decatur was once home to meth labs with the constant sound of gunshots in the background. Now the demolished apartment complex will become a vibrant place for active seniors 55 and older seeking affordable housing. The community will include 70 one-bedroom units and 10 two-bedroom units. The entire five-acre community will be a certified EarthCraft community. The site will include a community garden, a recycling program, walking paths and access to MARTA.

This new community is part of what I call the “Renaissance” of District 3. Columbia Residential has a great reputation for quality developments and we are looking forward to the day the project is completed, said DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson. “Our seniors deserve the best. This is all about them. As we move forward in DeKalb, we want to provide all the resources we can to keep our seniors vibrant.”
