The Beginning

In 1963, the Fogelman family embarks on the construction and lease-up of their first apartment community, the 11-story “Woodmont Towers” in Memphis, Tenn. Following the success of Woodmont, the company continues to expand its local apartment portfolio throughout the 1960s.

Geographic Expansion

Fogelman expands into new markets, including North Carolina and Texas in the 1970s. Fogelman also becomes the largest landlord in its hometown, Memphis.

Ground-up Multifamily Development

Building new apartments becomes Fogelman’s growth engine during the 1980s. The company develops more than 10,000 apartment homes across six states in the Southeast and Midwest. In 1989, Builder Magazine ranks Fogelman as one of the nation’s top 10 builders of multifamily properties.
