Lennar Multifamily Communities officials continue to target a mid- to late September demolition and groundbreaking for their M Residences in Midtown.
Christopher Cassidy, LMC Southeast division president, said the Florida-based company has named Hoar Construction to serve as the general contractor. Nashville-based Kimley-Horn and Associates is the civil engineer, with The Preston Partnership of Atlanta handling architecture duties.
Cassidy told the Post in January a September start was eyed and affirmed Monday that schedule remains in the offing.
The 19-story M Residences will offer a retail and a restaurant space, each of about 4,000 square feet. The retail space will face 19th, with the restaurant space to address both 19th and Chet Atkins. M Residences will include 300 apartment units.
On a related note, the company’s Berry Hill project site should see a parking structure erected within 30 days. A mid-2016 completion is being targeted, Cassidy said. (Read more here.)
Lennar Multifamily Communities is targeting a late-September groundbreaking for its 19-story M Residences mixed-use tower to rise in Music Row.
Christopher Cassidy, LMC Southeast division president, said the company plans to close on the acquisition of the multi-parcel site in early September, with full-scale demolition to begin shortly thereafter.
The properties are located at 814, 816, 818, 822 and 824 19th Ave. S., at the northeast corner of the 19th and Chet Atkins Place intersection, and span 1.02 acres.
The Metro Council recently passed on third and final reading a bill to allow the rezoning of the site to accommodate the project. The vote was 34-0.
“We’re pleased the community got behind us and supported the project,” Cassidy said. “We had council support from Councilwoman Erica Gilmore. She was very helpful in giving guidance and facilitating communication with the stakeholders. It all came together well.”

Lennar Multifamily Communities is now targeting a November start for the 320-unit apartment building it will develop on Franklin Road in Berry Hill.
The company expects to close on the purchase of the site in October, according to Chris Cassidy, LMC Southeast division president. Previously, Lennar had envisioned a late-September start for the not-yet-named building, with environmental sample work having been recently completed.
Cassidy said a contruction timetable of about 22 months is anticipated.
The site for LMC’s planned building was last home to Jaguar of Nashville and sits at the northeast corner of the T-intersection of Franklin Road (Eighth Avenue South) and Craighead Street. The building will be located a half-block south of Stonehenge Real Estate Group's recently opened 23Hundred at Berry Hill apartment building.
The Preston Partnership, which is co-headquartered in Atlanta and Washington, D.C., and was the lead architect for Midtown condominium tower Adelicia, is designing the building. The structure will stand five stories at its tallest point.
Lennar is also hoping to develop 19-story mixed-use tower M Residences that would rise in Midtown (read more here).
Metro Planning Department documents show Lennar Multifamily Communities is calling its 17-story tower planned for the Music Row area “M Residences” and is seeking a zone change for the effort.
Dale C. Morris owns the parcels, located at 814, 816, 818, 822 and 824 19th Ave. S., on which LMC (a subsidiary of Miami-based Lennar Corp.) wants to develop the apartment building. The Nashville office of Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., has been enlisted to request a zoning change to specific plan mixed-used.
The Metro Planning Commission will vote on the request in September.
If the project moves forward, the tower would rise at the northeast corner of 19th Avenue South and Chet Atkins Place. The building would offer ground-level retail/restaurant space, structured parking and 300 apartment units, according to a source familiar with the project.
Lennar officials could not be reached for comment.
