The 12South Warby Parker location is making plans to move to Edgehill Village.
The New York-based fashion eyewear company, which will establish a regional office in Nashville, has landed a permit to rehab space in the structure last home to Dulce Desserts. The building (see here courtesy of Google Maps) is located at 1207 Villa Place.
Nashville-based Phipps Construction Co. is handling the work, with a Metro Codes Department-issued permit valued at $15,000.
Warby Parker currently operates from a small space in 12South at Nashville-based high-end jeans retailer Imogene + Willie.
A Metro Planning Commission vote on the rezoning of Music Row property slated for a 135-unit apartment building has been deferred until Thursday, Feb. 12.
The commission was to have voted this Thursday, with developers Gary Belz and Brad Daniel seeking specific plan zoning. Belz is owner and founder of Berry Hill-based House of Blues Studio and a member of the Memphis family known for its work with shopping malls and the Peabody Hotel. Daniel is a real estate investor and a developer of health care properties.
If built, the apartment building would front 16th Avenue, with its back adjacent to some properties in the popular Edgehill Village. Four buildings, including a 13-unit vintage masonry apartment house, would be razed to accommodate the structure, for which a rendering has yet to be released or an architect named.
