COLLEGE PARK, Ga. – June 30, 2023 – South Park Cottages, the largest micro-home community in the state of Georgia, is now officially open in College Park. Founded by Atlanta investor and real estate developer Booker T. Washington, an Atlanta native focused on developing properties in the neighborhoods that he himself grew up in, the new community offers affordable living solutions to South Atlanta.

“We have always worked toward providing additional opportunities for homeownership and development is a big factor in that,” Mayor Bianca Motley Broom said. “Having developers invest back into their communities is a welcomed step in the right direction.”

Through state-of-the-art design, Washington’s team of architects and designers have created an innovative and affordable community. Conveniently located just minutes from Downtown Atlanta, the cottages feature one-bedroom and loft-style floor plans, each with one bath. Emphasizing its commitment to sustainable living with the use of an edible vegetable garden, solar lighting installations and community walking paths, the South Park Cottages feature unique lifestyle amenities such as a play area, dog park and a gated entrance. South Park Cottages aims to provide sustainable living innovations and connect all residents through the power of Opportunity Hub (OHUB), a parent holding company committed to increasing racial equity.

The City of College Park welcomed its new micro-home project on May 24, 2023, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring guest speakers, live music and community tours. The largest micro-home community in the state, South Park Cottages, now ranks the seventh largest in the country.
