Spring 2016, community members were invited to join MiKen Development, Centric Architecture, The Nashville Civic Design Center (NCDC), and Councilperson Mary Carolyn Roberts in MiKen’s second Robertson Road neighborhood charette. The event, “Robertson Road Community Design Charette: ‘Placemaking and Growing Neighborhood Assets'”, took place April 6th, 2016 at the West Police Precinct on Charlotte Avenue and was open to the public.
Since MiKen’s founding in 2012, the development team has maintained a willingness to stay dynamic and responsive to the communities in which the company works. By soliciting resident feedback and engaging the community early in the development process, their input can have greater implications in the final development plans.
The result is a collaborative community vision that better serves the intricate needs of a neighborhood; in this case, the residents of the Robertson Road community.
