Last week, R.G. Anderson Company, Inc., Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA), and Mayor John Cooper celebrated the grand opening of Randee Rogers Apartments, a 100-unit, mixed-income development that includes 50 affordable apartments in the Buena Vista neighborhood of Nashville.
Randee Rogers Apartments features 50 new HUD-subsidized/affordable apartments, 25 workforce apartments, and 25 market-rate apartments that consist of one-, two- and three-bedrooms.
Notable features of the apartment building:
Mark Deutschmann of Village Real Estate funded the replication of colorful murals that surrounded the former site. The murals are now an identifying feature of the new building.
The building is named for Randee Rogers, an MDHA employee and long-time advocate for MDHA residents. As the Community Organization Coordinator Rogers wanted to better understand the residents she served, so she moved herself and two daughters from a home in south Nashville to MDHA's Historic Preston Taylor Apartments.
