Augusta, Georgia’s WBJF-TV tells MHProNews Augusta businessman Donnie Thompson and a New York City developer are proposing dozens of modular homes on a six acre tract that Thompson recently bought from the city for $300,000. Mayor Deke Copenhaver says, “We need to bring more residents into downtown Augusta. Our loft apartments are at 98 percent occupancy rate so there really is a need, a pent up demand for downtown. I’m excited to have the opportunity to really take a look at what they’re proposing.” The historic train depot that rests on the site will be incorporated into a commercial district to serve the homes.
