On May 17 Habitat held its first dedication ceremony for six of the 26 future homeowners at Sherwood Commons. Thank you to all the homeowners who have worked so diligently for the opportunity to own a home in Nashville. Thank you to all of our wonderful partners who provided financial and volunteer support. Wonderful things happen when we work together to build homes, communities and hope.
Habitat's First Townhome Community to Be Completed in Spring 2022
Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville has begun development of its newest community, Sherwood Commons, located at the intersection of Ewing Drive and Gwynnwood Drive in North Nashville. The 26 unit townhome neighborhood is Habitat of Greater Nashville’s first townhome community with both two and three bedroom units. Home construction began in spring of 2021 and the project is slated to be completed by the spring of 2022.
“Sherwood Commons is an excellent opportunity for Habitat of Greater Nashville to offer its same construction excellence in a different affordable homeownership product that might be of interest to hardworking men and women in our community who don’t want the maintenance of a yard and who like the proximity to downtown and a major Interstate,” says Danny Herron, president and CEO of Habitat of Greater Nashville.

“Sherwood Commons is a welcome addition to the diverse housing options in District 2. With Nashville’s robust and expensive housing market, homeownership has become unattainable for so many. Sherwood Commons makes homeownership a reality for deserving residents who have put their money, time, and sweat into achieving part of the American Dream.” _ Council Member Kyonzté Toombs
