Woda Cooper Opens 60-Unit Affordable Housing Project in Knoxville
KNOXVILLE, TENN. — Woda Cooper has opened White Oak Crossing, an $8.5 million affordable housing project in Knoxville. Units were reserved for families that earn between 50 percent and 60 percent of the area median income. In Knox County, for example, this equates to $23,350 (50 percent AMI) and $28,020 (60 percent AMI) in annual income for a single person or up to $33,300 (50 percent AMI) and $39,960 (60 percent AMI) for a family of four. Larger families are also eligible. Monthly rents at White Oak Crossing range from $605 to $780 per month. The 60-unit community offers two- and three-bedroom floor plans and is located at 290 Quaker Way, six miles southeast of downtown Knoxville. Communal amenities include a community room with kitchenette, 24-hour fitness room and a playground. White Oak Crossing was made possible with the allocation of housing tax credits by the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA). Regions Bank was the primary equity investor and provided a construction-to-permanent loan through HUD’s 221(d)(4) program. Woda Construction Inc. served as the general contractor, and Nashville-based Bernard L. Weinstein & Associates was the architect.
