DOUGLASVILLE, Georgia – Douglasville City Council voted at its September 8, 2020, meeting to approve the new construction of Sweetwater Point, a high-quality, 96-unit affordable senior housing community by National Church Residences. The community will be located at the intersection of Stewart Parkway and Douglas Boulevard in Douglasville, Georgia.

Sweetwater Point will be an age and income restricted senior housing community. The three-story, building will consist of 55 one-bedroom units and 41 two-bedroom units.

“Douglasville has an opportunity to construct new, affordable, dense senior housing to ensure that the community is able to retain the seniors that offer so much history, wisdom and strength,” wrote United States Congressman David Scott in a letter of support for the development. “Throughout history, seniors have been and continue to be essential, foundational pillars to strong and resilient societies. As society shift towards multigenerational living experiences, it is critical that seniors continue to have safe, healthy places for them to live and thrive.”

National Church Residences owns and operates eight senior housing communities in metro Atlanta which includes Trinity Towers, Lakewood Christian Manor, Baptist Gardens, Baptist Towers, Panola Gardens and Betmar Village. National Church Residences has been developing and managing affordable senior housing communities in the metro Atlanta market for over 20 years. Currently, National Church Residences is the second largest owner of senior housing within the 29-county metropolitan statistical area, second only to the Atlanta Housing Authority.

“As the owner of Douglasville Town Center, my company and I support this project,” said Eddy A. Block, managing member of Cottage Gove Partners, LLC. “We believe that adding a new residential component at this location will help sustain the retail uses at the Town Center.”

National Church Residences was awarded $2.5 million in funding for the project from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to address low-income senior housing needs in the area. Additionally, the Department of HUD will be providing project-based rental assistance to 16 units.  The community will be constructed in accordance with National Green Building Standard (NGBS) requirements, and construction will begin in the summer of 2021.
