People want to live in downtown Macon. Since 2015, more than 650 residential units have been built and are fully occupied with a waiting list.
A local developer, Robbo Hatcher, wants to add to that inventory with the planned development of a new four-story mixed-use structure that will include 95 luxury loft apartments in addition to nine executive offices and three retail storefronts. The project is in the location of the former Blair’s Furniture and Neel’s department store buildings.
Hatcher worked closely with Historic Macon Foundation to save the buildings. After all options were exhausted, plans are to demolish them.
