Broad Avenue Apartments

Memphis, TN

This 370-unit multifamily project replaced existing abandoned warehouses in the Broad Avenue Arts District of Memphis. The iconic water tower, a symbol of the area, is highlighted in a courtyard area to tie into the existing artsy feel, and the architectural features are meant to reflect the surrounding industrial-style buildings. Amenities include two courtyards, a pool, grilling area, community clubhouse with games and a kitchen, an extensive workout room, yoga studio, dog bathing area, and bike storage. While these are primarily market-rate units, Low Median Income (LMI) apartments are available for rent as well, offering a unique housing opportunity to the lower-income population in the area. Shapiro & Company worked hand in hand with BB+M Architecture out of Charlotte, NC to design this project to fit in seamlessly with the surrounding neighborhood. Not only does this project highlight the artistic vibe of the district, but it also provides housing in an area increasing in popularity and demand.
