Like Decatur and Midtown and other points ITP, the City of Chamblee will soon be welcoming an injection of bona fide affordable housing.

McShane Construction Company officials announced today that a 79-unit project of “quality affordable housing and programming for seniors” is on track to debut in January, about a block from the Chamblee MARTA Station.

The project’s name and location is beyond merciful. It’s called “Mercy Housing at Mercy Park,” situated near Mercy Care North medical clinic.

Mercy Housing is one of the country’s largest nonprofit affordable housing organizations. This particular venture, designed by Smith Dalia Architects, is rising on 1.6 acres at 5135 Peachtree Road.

Officials said the LEED facility will feature 57 one-bedroom units, 22 two-bedrooms, plus nearly 4,000 square feet of amenities that include a gym, computer center, and rooftop terrace, like this is Midtown or something.

No information on potential rents was provided.

Chamblee, an honorable Final Four qualifier in this year’s Curbed Cup, is in the midst of a building boom that includes large-scale, mixed-use projects expected to deliver this year.
