Today we broke ground on the next installment of the Envision Cayce Master Plan known as Red Oak Flats. This four-story apartment building will have 102 apartments, 45 set aside for current Cayce Place residents and the remaining 57 will be a mix of workforce and market-rate units.
Red Oak Flats designed by EOA Architects will feature covered parking, a computer room, large courtyard, and a playground. Each apartment will have some sort of outdoor living space, either a balcony or porch.
"Affordable housing is one of our greatest challenges in Nashville, and my Under One Roof 2029 initiative is the city's most ambitious initiative to address it," said ground-breaking speaker
Nashville Mayor David Briley. Red Oak Towns is part of the mayor's housing initiative.
According to MDHA, "a mixed-income, mixed-use community, the Envision Cayce Master Plan calls for 2,390 units and ensures a one-for-one replacement of existing affordable units, while adding new affordable, workforce and market-rate housing. Envision Cayce outlines the demolition of the properties’ aging structures built between 1941 and 1954.
The Plan also calls for several acres of active green space and amenities the community desired such as a new health center, pharmacy, grocery, school, library and retailers."
