Ground broken on new Climb Nashville home

Crain Construction employees ceremonially broke ground Wednesday on the new Charlotte Avenue home of Climb Nashville, which will rise on a previously vacant lot between used-car dealerships.

The 17,000-square-foot building at 3600 Charlotte Ave. is expected to be completed by next May and will take the place of Climb Nashville’s facility half a mile south on Redmon Street. (It shares that building with the Nashville Ballet.) It will be 50 percent bigger than the current facility and feature a 50-foot climbing wall, dedicated yoga and fitness rooms and a locker room.

Ten-year-old Climb Nashville, which has more than 1,000 members, called on STG Design to draw up its new home.

“Climb Nashville is committed to improving the health and well-being of the Nashville community,” said Lance Brock, co-owner of Climb Nashville. “We chose the Charlotte Avenue location because we like the neighborhood, it’s close to the 28th Avenue Connector, and it’s on the bike and bus routes, which is important to our membership.”
