The Awethu House, a two-story restored brick building on the corner of Auburn Avenue and Hilliard Street, is the first property in the Good Places development portfolio. Through community engagement efforts lead by Lalanya Abner in 2017, this property was named the Awethu House, or the “People’s House.” It originates from “Amandla Awethu!” (translated “Power to the People”), a popular rallying cry in South Africa during the days of resistance against the apartheid.

Auburn Avenue was once the commercial, cultural, and spiritual epicenter of African American life in Atlanta prior to the civil rights movement. Given the historical significance of this beloved community where the property is located, the Awethu House was developed with the community in mind, balancing its revitalization while seeking to honor and preserve its rich history.

It will be home to three amazing tenants, including the Guild, Remerge and Atlanta Breakfast Club. If you are looking to pair delicious chicken & waffles with equitably sourced single-origin Phoenix Roasters coffee bar served up by the Atlanta Breakfast Club, and collaborate at the community design studio at Remerge while co-living & mingling with some change-makers of the Guild, make the Awethu House your next stop on Auburn Avenue.
