In Oakhurst Village, launched project to finish Decatur’s affordable-housing trio

About a block from the Oakhurst Village, where patrons chat on the patios of Steinbeck’s Ale House and Kavarna while school kids shuffle home unchaperoned, an unremarkable, two-story brick apartment building has been leveled in recent months into a red-clay pit. But in this coveted section of Decatur—an ITP city where median housing prices have ballooned more than $200,000 since 2014 and new studio apartments can fetch $1,300—the pit won’t yield a row of million-dollar neo-Craftsmans or a pocket of contemporary townhouses. Rather, what was affordable housing is being swapped with, for a change, affordable housing.
