 The Contributor - USA 11 June 2019

Sharing a history similar to that of thousands of still-vacant properties in Davidson County, the four-unit property at 710-716 Douglas Avenue in East Nashville was foreclosed in February 2010, was damaged in the May 2010 flood and remained vacant for several months thereafter. Urban Housing Solutions finally purchased the property in October 2010, renovations were completed in May 2011 and all units (2BR) were fully rented by September 2011.  Photo courtesy of MDHA
