NewTown Macon is bringing more lofts to downtown Macon

555 Poplar Street was last home to the downtown Goodwill store. The building had been vacant for roughly five years before being purchased by NewTown Macon in November 2014. The property will soon be transformed into 10 lofts and 2 live-work storefronts. As the building undergoes renovations, NewTown will be educating locals through our Developer's Academy, a program that teaches real estate development, historic rehabilitation and other redevelopment incentives. The project will be finished in the fall of 2015.
