Atlanta Real Estate Forum
Andy Litvak, partner and co-chair of the firm’s national commercial real estate practice, and associate Abe Kannof recently discussed City of Refuge along with Bruce Deel, founder and CEO, on the Atlanta Real Estate Forum podcast. Litvak, Kannof, and Deel talked about the importance of affordable housing with hosts Carol Morgan and Todd Schnick for the Around Atlanta segment, sharing more about City of Refuge’s mission and commitment to supporting program graduates with affordable housing options on Atlanta’s Westside.
“A crucial aspect of securing employment is finding safe and affordable housing,” explained Atlanta Real Estate Forum in an accompanying article. “With a partner like Nelson Mullins providing pro bono legal services, City of Refuge can identify apartments and hotels and transform them into affordable and safe spaces. Affordable housing near the City of Refuge campus provides convenience for program participants to settle in while having easy access to organization services.”
Litvak said, “We really view ourselves as a spoke on [the] wheel. We have particular resources and particular areas of expertise on the legal side and the real estate side. He added, “There’s where you’re really going to start to see the inertia and momentum when it comes to moving things forward as it relates to affordable housing on the Westside.”
