This page is kept up-to-date with information on MDHA construction projects.

10th and Jefferson Rendering

10th & Jefferson

MDHA is building a 54-unit apartment complex at 941 Jefferson Street. The three-story building, currently known as 10th & Jefferson, will offer studio, one, two and three bedroom units. The units will be available to individuals and families making up to 80 percent of the Area Median Income (AMI), while other units will be available to those making up to 120 percent of the AMI.

The project will have outdoor parking spaces for guests and an indoor parking garage for residents, which will be partially below grade level.

Construction crews began work at the site on Oct. 28, 2015. In November 2015, crews started excavating the site down to the parking garage level. The excavation work is expected to take approximately six months.

The project is expected to be complete in early 2018.

Barrett Manor Cayce Place Apartments Rendering

MDHA officially broke ground in October 2015 on the first new addition of public housing units in 18 years. The 70-unit apartment building, known as Barrett Manor, was being built on Summer Place. The $11 million building opened in August 2017.

Work at the site required a partial lane closure on Summer Place from Dec. 14, 2015 to mid January 2016. Street parking on Summer Place was closed during this time to allow two-way traffic to remain. During this time, residents parked in employee designated areas.

The construction of Cayce Place Apartments is part of phase one of the Envision Cayce Master Plan. A mixed-income, mixed-use community, the Plan calls for 2,390 units and ensures a one-for-one replacement of units at Cayce Place and neighboring CWA Plaza Apartments, while adding both new affordable, workforce and market-rate housing. The next phase of construction calls for 94 townhome-like apartments at Kirkpatrick Park. MDHA broke ground at Kirkpatrick Park in November 2017.

Parking Garage

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 2017.

Overnight concrete pours began September 2015 and occur between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. Monday through Saturday. The overnight pours will take place one to three times weekly for up to one year. During the 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. window, a portion of Fifth Avenue North between Church and Commerce Streets will be closed to make room for a concrete pump truck. Drivers will still be able to access the garage at 144 Fifth Ave. North and the adjacent alley.

Since April 2015, the southbound lane of Fifth Avenue North between Church Street and Commerce Street has been closed. The lane serves as a staging area for loading and unloading construction materials. Drivers should use Fourth Avenue North or Sixth Avenue North as the detour route. Both lanes of Fifth Avenue between Church & Commerce Streets were closed 5 a.m. July 21 through 8 p.m. July 22  to assemble tower cranes.

Blasting began in March 2015 and ended in August 2015.

Although this project offers long-term benefits to Nashville in regards to parking and economic development, we recognize construction can be disruptive. Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.
