Long-delayed sale, rehab of decaying Forest Cove apartments on horizon
Forest Cove’s downward spiral could be coming to an end — one that marks the beginning of the dilapidated, decades-old Section 8 apartment complex’s long-awaited resurrection.
Global Ministries Foundation (GMF), which owns the nearly 400-unit community on Atlanta’s Southside, intends to finalize the sale of the property to Millennia Housing Management (MHM) next week, GMF CEO Richard Hamlet told Atlanta Civic Circle in an interview.
Today, Forest Cove is what residents have called “uninhabitable” — boarded-up, littered with trash and infested with rodents, bugs and mold. MHM, which has managed the property since 2017, plans to restore the affordable housing development to something tenants can be proud of.
