Peachtree Housing Communities in partnership with Oracle Consulting Services completed the rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of A.L. Miller Village in 2017. A.L. Miller Village is an Historic Landmark School campus located on an eleven-acre site at 2241 Montpelier Avenue, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia. A.L. Miller Village is centrally located with off-site amenities within walking distance including churches, medical offices, Mercer University, local parks and numerous retail outlets.
The campus consists of three separate buildings, the High School, the freestanding Gymnasium building and the Elementary School building with an attached Administration building. Both Low-Income Housing Tax Credits and Historic Tax Credits were utilized to finance the development of A.L. Miller Village. The Development consists of:
- 62 one, two, and three-bedroom units located in the existing historic buildings
- 9 freestanding three-bedroom single family homes
- Onsite parking with numerous site amenities
- New design initiatives to accommodate Accessibility Requirements including an elevator
- A.L. Miller Village is also a designated EarthCraft Community.
The A. L. Miller School Campus (Miller School) is currently listed on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation 2008 Places in Peril͛. This designation refers to historic buildings that the Trust believes to be significant Historic structures that are threatened by demolition, neglect, lack of maintenance, inappropriate development or insensitive public policy. Oracle Consulting Services and Peachtree Housing Communities (the Team) recognized the potential of the Miller School for redevelopment and adaptive reuse and began formulating a strategy to accomplish this goal.The development Team worked closely with members of the community to formulate a comprehensive redevelopment strategy for the Miller School and surrounding adjacent area.
We are excited about the successful rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of the A.L. Miller school into A.L. Miller Village and being a part of the vibrant community in Macon, GA!
