Laney Walker / Bethlehem Communities
The revitalization of Laney Walker/Bethlehem got its start in 2008, when the Augusta Commission passed legislation that established funding strategies for community development in Laney Walker/Bethlehem. The goal is to turn around decades of blight and disinvestment and regenerate nearly 1,100 acres of Augusta’s urban center. Funds are currently being used for building new homes and renovating current homes, planning, land banking and property acquisition and commercial and retail development. Since passage of the resolution, the Augusta Housing & Community Development Department has developed an overall master plan for the area, a pattern book to guide development, a financial incentives program and a marketing plan to promote the overall effort.
The communities feature new homes from $150K - $225K ranging in a variety of styles and floor plans from 1500 sq ft to over 2000 sq ft in spacious three and four-bedroom offerings. These new properties are packed with modern appliances and all the amenities a family could need."
