The Local Redevelopment Authority Board of Fort McPherson also approved Tyler Perry Studios to purchase an additional 37.5 acres of land.

“I see too many Black and Brown working-class people still falling victim to the continued gentrification of our neighborhoods. I’m extremely excited about the accessible ownership options that will exist for future residents of this multigenerational community,” Bishop T.D. Jakes said in a TDJREV press release.

In addition to mixed-income housing developments, the TDJREV plan is to transform this area into a cultural hub. Including restaurants, shopping and theatres to attract business and create jobs in the area.

Bishop Jakes thanked Tyler Perry along with Governor Brian Kemp and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for supporting this development project.

Jakes called this project an “opportunity to serve and further amplify their vision and unwavering commitment to attracting growth opportunities and development excellence to the City of Atlanta,” in a press release.

In his statement, Jakes also thanked Cassius F. Butts Chairman the Local Redevelopment Authority Board of Fort McPherson for supporting TDJREV in this venture.
