Historic South Atlanta has a rich history dating back to the late 1800's. Rich in higher education, performing arts and community development. In 2000, residents and leadership of the South Atlanta Civic League approached FCS to invite us to apply our community development model to Historic South Atlanta. We humbly accepted their gracious offer to partner with the neighborhood to revitalize and transform Historic South Atlanta for almost 20 years.

Innovative Development

We use the term "mixed-income housing," but did you know we're passionate about mixed-income retail, too? We'll walk into Carver Neighborhood Market and you'll see tasty products at a variety of price points. It may seem simple, but it was a huge innovation when we came up with the model! Most grocery stores cater to only a certain income level.
