Briarcliff Summit Apartments

Atlanta, GA

Before the conversion of the building into affordable senior housing in the 1970s, the Briarcliff opened as a luxury apartment building in 1925 built by Asa Candler Jr. son of Coca Cola magnate and mayor of Atlanta, Asa Candler, Sr. Listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the property suffered decades of neglect before its recent renovation sparked a revitalization in the downtown Atlanta neighborhood. The firm’s design ensured the building retained its historic architectural integrity, at the same time, preserving quality affordable senior housing for local residents. Funded in part by Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and federal and state Historic Tax Credits, the 201 unit building underwent extensive interior and exterior renovations and historic rehabilitation.
