Event Recognizes Public Housing Residents Over Age 90
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency will honor more than 25 public housing residents who are over age 90, including two people over age 100, during the 37th annual 90-Plus Club Celebration at Parthenon Towers last Thursday, September 29..
MDHA owns and operates three high-rise properties which are designated for seniors only and are home to approximately 350 people age 62 and older. More than 525 seniors age 62 and above reside in MDHA’s seven high-rise properties and many other seniors live in other MDHA public housing communities.
In recent years, MDHA has strengthened its focus on its senior and disabled residents. Major renovations at Gernert Studio Apartments, Edgefield Manor and Parthenon Towers are complete with upgrades underway at Hadley Park Towers and Vine Hill Towers. Improvements to the high-rise facilities include the addition of energy-efficient central heating and cooling systems; improved floor-space utilization; new kitchen appliances; and major energy upgrades.
