Project Overview

The Tindall Heights neighborhood was created as Macon’s first public housing development for African American families in the 1940’s. At the time, it was considered modern; however, the units and buildings became outdated and obsolete the next seventy years. BTBB was tasked with studying how the neighborhood could be reimagined into a mixed-tenancy of seniors and families. By reestablishing a more regular street grid, the “superblock” was eliminated, and the streets blend back into the fabric of the surrounding neighborhood. Relocation of residents, demolition of the existing structures, and preparation for site infrastructure was completed first. Then redevelopment of this thirty-acre site over 4 phases: Tindall Seniors Towers, Tindall Fields I: Garden Apartments, and Tindall Fields II & III: Townhomes. A future commercial phase is planned for the area bordering Little Richard Penniman Boulevard.
