Holleman keen on proposed Charlotte project

A long-empty site at the northeast corner of 46th and Charlotte avenues in Sylvan Park is slated for a development that holds strong potential, according to the Metro councilman in whose district the property sits.

Jason Holleman, who represents the council’s District 24, said he has seen concept drawings as prepared by Nashville-based Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon Inc.

Holleman told the Post he is “pretty excited” about the proposed project, which he described in an email as "urban" and "pedestrian friendly," with structured parking.

“I think it's just what Charlotte needs to keep the momentum going,” Holleman said. 

A partnership that includes local real estate investor Nick Spiva owns the property, on which most recently sat a masonry religious building that housed the Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ. Called 4508 Charlotte Pike Partners, the entity last year paid $1.8 million for the roughly 1.72-acre site.

The Tennessean first reported that 4508 Charlotte Pike Partners wants to redevelop the site.

Spiva did not returns phone calls seeking comment.
