Fatherland Flats hits 75% leased mark

Fatherland Flats — a 48-unit apartment project that represents the reinvention of an outdated existing residential development — is now 75 percent leased.

Developer Chris McCarty said the rehabbing of what had been called 400 Fatherland, located in East Nashville and seen in the below photo courtesy of Google Maps, will be concluded by the end of June.

McCarty and his team will spend about $1 million on the effort.

“The response to the project has been overwhelming and we are most grateful for that,” McCarty said. “We greatly appreciate the efforts of everyone on the team that made this possible.”

“East Nashville is ripe for a project of this size and scope to meet the demand for market-rate housing.”

East Nashville-based Smith Gee Studio has served as architect for the project.
