New apartments for Salemtown, VU's rec center expansion, Asurion's new offices, and more ...

Evergreen At Werthan gets going

Southland has the $6.4 million contract to build a three-story, 73,000-square-foot mixed-use project to be located at the northeast corner of the Rosa Parks Boulevard and Hume Street intersection in Salemtown. The project includes 92 apartments — 82 one-bedroom units and 10 two- and three-bedroom units. While the permit indicates a mixed-use project, the only non-residential use is a small office and, earlier this month, the project's developers told they never considered retail for the space. The project (pictured below) was described as "unnamed," though a Metro ordinance names it as "Evergreen @ Werthan." The building will be located across Hume from Germantown's The Lofts at Werthan Mills.
