James Allen Jr. Place

formerly Hightower Manor Highrise

RAD Conversion and Redevelopment

Atlanta GA

Built in 1982, this high-rise housing community is made up of 129 apartments for senior and young disabled. Atlanta Housing and Columbia Residential utilized the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) program to convert units from HUD public housing to Section 8 housing choice voucher. All households were offered permanent displacement relocation assistance in order to close the entire property for a 15-month construction period. All households were tracked throughout the construction period and 40% of original resident population chose to return to the renovated project. Relocation project was completed in November2023.
