Hundreds of new housing units are bound for the doorstep of some of Atlanta’s most storied colleges and universities.

Officials with Atlanta-based developer Integral Group recently announced they’ve closed on financing to build the second phase of Ashley Scholars Landing, a mixed-income venture at Atlanta University Center, just west of Castleberry Hill.

The project will rise on Atlanta Student Movement Boulevard and feature 212 units for rent, according to Integral. Other aspects will include two fitness rooms, a club room, activity center, and 240 parking spaces.

Integral previously developed Ashley Scholars Landing’s 135-unit initial phase across the street, consisting of two buildings and amenities such as a swimming pool.

HBCUs Morehouse College, Clark Atlanta University, and Spelman College are all located within a few blocks.

With the latest Ashley build, families living in 90 units are expected to receive rental assistance through Atlanta Housing’s Homeflex Program, which that agency credits with increasing access to quality affordable housing for low-income tenants across the city.

The Ashley project is considered part of the Choice Neighborhood Initiative and revitalization of University Homes, the nation’s first public housing development for Black residents. The redeveloped Roosevelt Hall—the last remaining piece of University Homes—stands across the street.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is providing more than $30 million in construction financing for Ashley Scholars Landing’s second phase, alongside funding partners that include Atlanta Housing and the Georgia Department of Community Affairs.  

We’re reached out to Integral for more images and details on a construction timeline, and we’ll update this story with any additional information that comes.

Other projects under Integral’s Ashley brand include the 304-unit Ashley Auburn Point near MARTA’s King Memorial station, plus other communities in Midtown, West End, and elsewhere.

The developer describes Ashley complexes as combinations of “affordable and workforce housing units within a harmonious mixed-income community,” where residents can “experience the perfect blend of comfort, convenience, and luxury.”
