DWC preps to move as Division Street project looms

To make way for a proposed mixed-use project, Nashville-based DWC Construction Co. is preparing to leave the Division Street building from which it has operated since 1948.

John Arndt, DWC president and CEO, said the company is making plans for the process. He declined to offer many details but noted DWC Construction Co. does not own the building.

“It appears we will be moving sometime during the third quarter,” Arndt said.

Charlotte, N.C.-based developer Crescent Communities (via its Crescent Acquisitions LLC) is planning a 280-unit luxury apartment and retail building to be located within a portion of the 1300 block of Division Street between The Gulch and the Music Row Roundabout. Core drilling for environmental samples recently took place at the site, which is home to five buildings and five businesses.

Crescent officials could not be reached for comment.
