Columbia said in a news release that it plans to open the first phase of Spoke in early 2018. The complex also will include a restaurant and headquarters for youth organization Moving in the Spirit. Future phases of the development are planned.
Columbia has entered into discussion surrounding the potential for nearly $2 million in tax breaks to set aside 10 percent of the units in Spoke as affordable housing. A decision is pending.
Dillon Baynes, managing partner for Columbia, called the project “the culmination of over 15 years of work in the Edgewood community” for the firm.
Columbia is also the development partner with MARTA for the Avondale station mixed-use community, which is expected open its first phase in 2018, according to a MARTA development timeline.
“Through the redevelopment of our underutilized parking lots we are creating transit oriented communities that drive community development and promote MARTA ridership,” Parker said in the release.
