Developer buys Germantown site, eyes commercial project

Nashville-based boutique development company Trust Development has paid $275,000 for a piece of Germantown property on which it plans a mixed-use infill project.

The seller was John Horton.

Jim Creason, Trust president, said he envisions a restaurant to operate from the building. The property, on which a garden currently sits, is located at the southwest corner of the Fifth Avenue North and Monroe Street intersection. (Read more about Creason's plans here.)

“I’m so excited about what we’re working on to bring to the neighborhood,” Creason (pictured) said. “It’s going to be a fun project. The building will have some interesting components to it.”

Root Architecture (stylized as rootARCH) is handling design. Bronson Lankford of Lankford Construction will serve as general contractor. Both companies are based in Nashville. The team is looking at an office-retail option.

Trust will not need a rezoning for the site.
