Germantown project to feature 30-foot-tall metal piece

Atlanta-based SWH Residential Partners has selected an art piece for its The Flats at Taylor Place apartment development under construction in Germantown.

John Tirrill, SWH managing partner, said the company tapped metalsmith John Medwedeff to create the contemporary steel piece, which will rise about 30 feet. Medwedeff is a Murphysboro, Ill.-based artist who was born and raised in Nashville.

“We hope to have the piece installed in September,” Tirrill said.

Medwedeff’s creation will be placed in front of the building’s façade, which spans Fifth Avenue North between Van Buren Street on the south and Hume Street on the north. The Flats at Taylor Place is slated for completion in December. (Read more here.)
