Developer eyes Nations construction start, offers cash for project name

Craighead Development is slated to break ground within 60 days on what will be the single-largest infill project in West Nashville’s The Nations neighborhood since the city’s post-2000 building boom.

And in one of the more unusual moves in recent local development history, the company is soliciting names for the 98-townhouse project.

Specifically, Craighead officials say they will offer $500 to the person who chooses a name the company deems is best suited for the development, which will be located along the west side of 57th Avenue North between California Avenue on the north and Louisiana Avenue on the south. The base price of units will be $179,900.

Those interested in the contest can send an email to with a recommended project name and contact information. The winner will be notified by March 21.
