Community Development - Atlanta | Integral

Community Development


Integral’s Community Development division is focused on developing affordable, workforce and mixed-income housing solutions and implementing community revitalization projects,  based on its unique Holistic Community Development Model. The focus of the model is on community transformations - not simply transactions.

This unique people-centered community transformation vision was first put on display in Atlanta through Integral’s work as manager of a joint venture that partnered with the Atlanta Housing Authority to plan and implement the revitalization of the site of the nation’s first public housing project. The result was a 60-acre comprehensive revitalization and the nation’s first holistic HOPE VI community revitalization, known today as Centennial Place.

The division has helped to create environmentally, socially and economically sustainable projects and communities, transforming hundreds of acres in more than 15 cities, producing almost 10,000 housing units in over 60 mixed-income, affordable and workforce housing developments. The division has also been successful in transforming well positioned, yet overlooked, corridors into vibrant communities of choice, leveraging creative financing and other tools as part of the capital solution.

Integral’s master planned communities have been implemented in many cases through partnerships with public and/or community-based partners.

In its developments, the company had used partnerships with public and/or community-based partnerships to ensure sustainability by incorporating:

  • a proper mix of uses over time, including quality of life infrastructure
  • restoration of market forces
  • expansion of disposable income
  • expansion of services
