Minutes from the shadows of Atlanta’s tallest skyscrapers sat one of the largest housing projects in the Southeast – crime-infested “Perry Homes”. In 1998, it was considered the most dangerous precinct in America. For nearly 50 years, this part of northwest Atlanta had been synonymous with crime, violence and blight. It was a place where shootings happened so often that locals called it Little Vietnam. That’s all about to change.
Lewis Contracting Services is proud to be part of a massive revitalization project to reclaim a significant portion of an area that at one time fostered only poverty and despair. Perry Homes is being replaced by a new mixed-income community called West Highlands.
The Atlanta Housing Authority is working with three private partners to build a vibrant mixed-use community on 460 acres. Planned amenities include a YMCA, library, public school, golf course, more than 90 acres of green space and a nearby trail built by the PATH Foundation.
Lewis Contracting Services has been hired to provide complete erosion control, grading, clearing, sanitary and storm sewers and systems, and water systems. LCS will prepare the site for construction of this new community and West Highlands will soon be a safe and pleasant place to call home.
