Centerstone to Break Ground on Construction of Marshall Place Apartments

Affordable Housing Complex Designed for Residents with Mental Health Diagnoses

Lewisburg, Tenn.
— On March 17, Centerstone, Tennessee’s leading provider of behavioral health services, will break ground on the first phase of Marshall Place, a new apartment complex that will provide safe, comfortable, affordable housing to low-income individuals who have a mental health diagnosis.

Marshall Place is funded by the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati (FHLBank) in cooperation with US Bank and the Tennessee Housing Development Authority (THDA). The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. at Highway 50 West near the intersection of Highway 31A.

In attendance at the groundbreaking will be representatives from the local government, the Tennesseee Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities, THDA, FHLBank, US Bank and Centerstone.

“Centerstone is pleased to be able to offer homes to low income mental health consumers who often have difficulty finding quality, affordable housing,” said Rudy Gregory, regional director for Centerstone. “These apartments will be a safe, comfortable, supportive home for these individuals.”

While Centerstone operates several residential facilities, Marshall Place will be the first new construction project to offer low income permanent housing. All residents will be capable of independent living and have access to a wide array of treatment and support services offered by Centerstone.

The first phase of construction, which comprises 10 one-bedroom apartment units, is scheduled to be completed by November 2005. Centerstone will begin taking resident applications later in the year. Eight additional units are planned for the second phase, which is expected to begin after the first phase is completed.
