Reserve at Mills Creek
Reserve at Mills Creek, completed in 2016, is a newly constructed residential community of 100 units exclusively reserved and targeted for seniors. Reserve at Mills Creek is restricted to occupants age 62 years and older who are capable of living in an independent community. This 3.7 acre community is located in Scottdale, a suburban area of central DeKalb County. Retailers and service providers in close proximity include Tobie Grant and Harrison Parks and Recreation centers, Your DeKalb Farmers Market, MRI & Imaging of Dekalb, Best Bank and Kroger, along with many restaurants.
Reserve at Mills Creek is the first phase of Village at Mills Creek, the redevelopment of Tobie Grant Manor, formerly a 200 unit aging public housing project which was demolished in the Spring of 2015. The redevelopment is within three miles of Decatur square. Public transportation (bus service) is available within one-half mile.
Reserve at Mills Creek’s 100 residential units consists of 84 one bedroom units and 16 two bedroom units, contained within a four-story mid-rise building, with interior access corridors and central elevators. All interior amenities, as well as the management office, are housed within the building. Parking for the community includes 100 surface spaces for residents and additional street parking available to visitors. Existing infrastructure including sidewalks and access to public transit is utilized to the maximum extent feasible to maintain links to the surrounding community.
The community has been highly amenitized to encourage physical activity and resident socialization. Amenities will include, but will not be limited to: a fitness center, community room, resident gardens and an outdoor gazebo with barbeque area. The site is adjacent to the Tobie Grant Recreation Center and discussions have already begun with DeKalb County to enhance the existing adjacent park and offer integrated access to residents.
The project consists of both HUD’s Rental Assisted Demonstration (RAD) and DeKalb project-based rental assisted units. The Reserve at Mills Creek has 99% of the units designated as affordable to residents at 60% AMI.
