Welcome to the proposed site of the DT Walton Housing Complex! Macon-Bibb County and the Urban Development Authority have partnered to turn this publicly-owned, under-utilized surface lot into housing, parking, and retail space. The vacant parking lot you see across the street will be the site of a mixed-used new construction project that will add approximately 100 new loft units and a new parking deck to the downtown area. This project represents the County’s commitment to downtown Macon and ensuring it plays an active role in purposeful development of the urban core.
This pivotal project will ensure that the vacant land you see is developed for its highest and best use. The Urban Development Authority issued a request for proposals for developing this property and selected Macon-based Piedmont Construction Group to complete the project.
According to a residential study commissioned by NewTown, downtown Macon can absorb 200 market-rate residential units annually. This development will help meet the surging demand for downtown housing and advance NewTown’s new strategic plan goal of adding 350 more loft units in the Central Business District in the next five years.
Plus it adds more businesses and parking to the downtown area –something we can all appreciate and enjoy!
