The city of Griffin was founded in the 1840s and quickly became a railroad boomtown. As the birthplace of John Henry “Doc” Holiday and home to many historic homes and buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Griffin has long garnered the interest of historians and scholars. Now, the city is attracting people from all over, becoming the production site of a number of films and television shows.
This newfound interest in Griffin, Georgia, calls for new, affordable housing opportunities. When an area goes through gentrification, lower-income locals are sometimes phased out or neglected, causing the area to lose its unique culture and spirit. Tranquility at Griffin will help relieve some of the financial stress so prevalent in the area by filling a 15+ year void of new affordable housing in Griffin. By using the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC), the development stimulates the local economy by increasing local purchasing power and bringing in new jobs and tax revenues. With affordable rents in place to alleviate much of the hardship and concern, residents of Griffin can spend more time exploring their city and taking advantage of new opportunities.
