Tenants at a public housing community on Atlanta’s southside are begging for the property owner to fix up the virtually uninhabitable complex.
Millennia Housing Management (MHM), which owns the Forest Cove apartments, told Atlanta Civic Circle this week that help is on the way, but residents say it’s not coming fast enough.
After years of teasing a purchase, MHM, the one-time property manager, purchased the complex from Global Ministries Foundation in April, promising to revive the community to the tune of more than $100,000 per unit and relocate residents during the renovation.
