Shapiro & Company is proud to be the architect for Tillman Cove, which received the Tennessee Housing Development Agency's (TDHA) Tennessee Best Neighborhood Stabilization Award 2023 during the Tennessee Housing Conference. The Tennessee's Best Awards honor outstanding individuals and organizations with significant contributions to affordable housing in Tennessee.
Tillman Cove features apartments, townhomes, independent senior living, and retail space that will provide 238 new and rehabilitated units for low-income families and senior citizens. Amentities will include a leasing office, community room, laundry room, and fitness center. The spacious units will feature granite counter tops, energy star appliances, washer/dryer hookups, walk-in closets, and patios or balconies. A portion of units will be designed and reserved for seniors. The work to revitalize Tillman Cove was funded in part by $29 million in tax-exempt bonds and over $892 thousand dollars in the National Housing Trust Fund grant.
“THDA is proud to recognize Tillman Cove and Elmington Capital for their incredible contributions to affordable housing in the Memphis area,” said THDA Executive Director Ralph Perrey. “We applaud their dedication to the stabilization of the Memphis area."
