Will SoBro land buyer build hotel?

The company that recently purchased a prime piece of SoBro property has completed two hotel projects in Nashville during the past few years — begging the question: Is another hotel in the offing?

Atlanta-based North Point Hospitality Group created NP5TH LLC to buy for $5.9 million about .9 acres from Fifth Avenue Land Investments. Bert Mathews, president of Nashville-based commercial real estate company The Mathews Co., served as managing partner for the latter.

Mathews declined to speculate whether North Point will build a hotel on the site, which fronts Korean Veterans Boulevard between Fourth and Fifth avenues south.

Of note, the company developed in Midtown both the Home 2 Suites by Hilton that fronts Division Street and the Hilton Garden Inn that fronts Broadway. The two hotels share a structured parking garage.    

North Point President and Chief Executive Officer Jay Patel could not be reached for comment regarding his company’s plans for the SoBro site.
