Investing in housing for thriving families and vibrant communities.
About Rethink Community
We believe people deserve affordable and safe spaces where their families can flourish. Our approach to real estate development is community-centric and designed to help strengthen neighborhoods. We believe that real estate can and should drive returns for investors and for the community, and that development is at its best when it does both.
Too many families are rent-burdened, and our cities lack an adequate supply of housing. Developing neighborhoods with increasing job growth are unprepared to provide housing for a growing and diverse workforce population while continuing to meet the housing needs of the existing community. By partnering with communities, we are developing mixed-income communities to address the housing crisis. These communities leverage and integrate the existing assets of the surrounding neighborhood to support inclusive and comprehensive economic development.
We believe that development should strengthen a neighborhood and not displace its residents. We support resilient, inclusive, and prosperous communities.
The National Low Income Housing Coalition found that a renter working 40 hours a week and earning minimum wage can afford a two-bedroom apartment (i.e., not be cost-burdened) in exactly zero counties nationwide. In other words, it’s not possible.1
50 million Americans live in economically distressed communities, according to research by Economic Innovation Group.2
JOB GROWTH IN
According to McKinsey Global Institute, 60% of job growth by 2030 could be concentrated in 25 cities and their peripheries with just 44 percent of the overall population, while wide swaths of the country will see little employment growth or even lose jobs.3

Rethink Nashville is a Rethink Community project in conjunction with Land Investment Partners of Nashville, TN to form a partnership for the execution of horizontal development and sale of land parcels to individual developers at 1410 Dickerson Pike. This property represents a unique opportunity to develop one of the larger tracts of land in the Nashville downtown area. The location on Dickerson Pike allows direct connection to the downtown core, just 2 miles south, as well as close access to the major Nashville Interstates. Rethink Community, in working with local partners, has developed an initial plan that seeks to capitalize on the unique elevation and city vistas with a planned community for working and market rate residents.
