Trevecca Towers renovation earns award

Trevecca Towers, composed of two high-rise buildings located adjacent to the campus of Trevecca Nazarene University, is the largest single-site preservation and rehabilitation project to utilize THDA resources in the state.

THDA allocated more than $90 million in resources for LHP to use toward the completion of the renovation of the senior affordable housing property. LHP purchased the property in 2018 for over $54 million and will keep rent for all 564 units below market rates for the next three decades.
