Nashville and Chattanooga, TN were new city destinations for the MRED Program in late March 2017. Stops and tours on Day 1 in Nashville included ONE Nashville Place, 505 Nashville, Capitol View, and Gulch Crossing. MRED alumni Trevor Cross ’11, Matt Evans ’13, Brent Janan ’16, Derek Lisle ’08, and Josh Mitchell ’16 hosted the first year students for an evening reception at LA Jackson’s.
Day 2 of the trip began with a tours of Hill Center Brentwood and Berry Farms before the group headed to Chattanooga, TN. Hutton Company CEO Karen Hutton and MRED alumni Matt Phillips ’07 met the group upon arrival for a tour of Hutton. While in Chattanooga, Lamp Post Properties provided a tour of the Tomorrow Building and they heard the Chattanooga Story from River City Company’s Jim Willamson.
Unfortunately the scheduled Day 3 tours in Atlanta had to be cut short due to the I-85 bridge collapse.
