This page is kept up-to-date with information on MDHA construction projects.
MDHA began construction on Envision Cayce’s second residential development and first mixed-income construction at Kirkpatrick Park in November 2017.
Ninety-four townhome-like apartments will be built on-site.
The 94 units will house families of all incomes: subsidized, workforce and market-rate. All units will have market-rate amenities and enhanced security features including video doorbell, which allows the homeowner to see who is at their door from their cell phone. The features and exterior design were created by Smith Gee Studio and were based on feedback from Cayce residents, neighbors, community members and stakeholders.
All of the subsidized units at Kirkpatrick Park will house current Cayce Place residents, many of whom have been instrumental in the Envision Cayce process.
The new construction is part of MDHA’s plan to rebuild Cayce Place, Nashville’s largest public housing property, which is currently home to nearly 800 families. The Envision Cayce Master Plan calls for more than 2,000 units and ensures a one-for-one replacement of the subsidized units while adding new workforce and market-rate units.
MDHA broke ground on the first new residential construction of Envision Cayce in 2015. Current Cayce residents began moving into the 70 one-bedroom development on Summer Place in August.
MDHA plans to break ground on the third residential construction of Envision Cayce in early 2018. The project, which will be built along South Sixth St., consists of three buildings with a total of 96 mixed-income units.
MDHA is building a 54-unit affordable and workforce apartment complex at 941 Jefferson Street. The three-story building, named 10th & Jefferson, will offer studio, one, two and three-bedroom units and features electronic door locks throughout. Many of the units have patios and balconies. On-site amenities include a rooftop terrace with a spectacular view of the downtown skyline, a parking garage and a lounge.
Fifteen of the 54 units will house families making less than 50 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI). The remaining 39 units will be available to those making up to 120 percent of the AMI, which is considered workforce housing.
The project is expected to be complete in April 2018.
MDHA built a 1,010-space parking garage with nearly 8,000 square feet of retail space to help meet Nashville’s growing need for downtown parking. Officials broke ground at the corner of Fifth Avenue North and Church Street in November 2014. The garage portion of the project was completed in December 2016. The retail portion of the project is expected to be finished sometime in 2018.
