This entity investment reflects a thematic investment thesis of TriGate’s: partner directly with quality homebuilders to creatively deliver attainable housing solutions across growing southeast markets.”

Legacy South will continue its business of delivering high quality homes, with the new capital allowing several new projects to commence in the near term. These projects will be consistent with Legacy South’s brand and include carefully curated homes in established and growing neighborhoods around Nashville such as Madison and East Nashville.
