Located in Frayser, the first phase of the Wolf River Bluffs development will include 34 single-family homes that feature eco-friendly amenities and a universal design to ensure functionality, mobility and accessibility for all people.

“What an exciting day for our team, board members and city officials to celebrate the tremendous progress we’ve made on this project,” said Tim Bolding, Executive Director of United Housing, Inc. “We’re thrilled to have completed our first four market rate homes and are proud that they will offer significant energy savings to residents. With easy access to Midtown and Downtown Memphis and plenty of parks and trails nearby, it’s clear that our Wolf River Bluffs neighborhood is a true gem in Memphis.”

During the special unveiling event, Bolding welcomed attendees and introduced Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell, who spoke about the significant advantages of the eco-friendly neighborhood and what it meant for Memphis and Shelby County. Afterward, several individuals involved with the neighborhood joined Bolding and Mayor Luttrell to cut a ribbon to signify the official completion of the four homes.

Afterward, guests were able to tour the homes, which each offer three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a great room and eat-in kitchen housed within 1,500 square feet.
