Columbia Tusculum apartments with focus on nature near completion

Four23 Hoge, located at 423 Hoge St., is a 62-unit apartment complex located in the heart of Columbia Tusculum’s business district. Construction began in November 2020. The opening of Four23 Hoge is slated for March 31.

The apartments are being developed by R2 Partners and will be managed by Towne Properties.

Downsizing to an apartment is both for convenience and a change in lifestyle for older residents, with many of the tasks of homeownership being transferred to property management. Additionally, by switching to apartment living, renters can spend money that would normally go toward home maintenance and other aspects of home ownership on travel, recreation and more.

Since many who will be living at Four23 Hoge are used to the expansiveness of a house, bigger floorplans and extra dens were intentional on the developer’s behalf. Unit sizes range from 686 square feet for a one-bedroom unit to 1,360 square feet for a two-bedroom unit with a den and a deck.

Rent for one-bedroom units at Four23 Hoge start at $1,575. The largest two-bedroom units start at $3,139.

nature-inspired installations that will go in Four23 Hoge’s lobby. Hatchett’s art also is being carried throughout the project, Rosenberg said, as seen in the birds painted on the kitchen backsplashes in each unit.

In the courtyard, residents can use lounge spaces, a stainless-steel pool, grill station and outdoor TV. Biophilic design is about using all the senses, Rosenberg said, so a cascading fountain will also be in the courtyard, once completed.

R2 Partners also worked with Bill Browning, co-author of “Nature Inside: A Biophilia Design Guide” to mirror the atmosphere of a walk in the woods in Four23 Hoge.
