The local office of CBRE has begun leasing efforts related to the 10,150 square feet of street-level retail space to be included in the 25-story SkyHouse Nashville, now under construction in Midtown.
Austin Benedict will handle the marketing and leasing for the retail space, according to a release.
The largest space, to span 3,000 square feet, will be located at the southeast corner of Broadway and 17th and includes 28-foot ceilings and a patio, intended for a restaurant user. The other spaces range from 1,000 to 2,800 square feet, with CBRE to target fast-casual restaurants, boutique shops or amenities stores for the residents of the building's 325 apartment units.
Of note, all retailers and retail patrons will have access to the building's 497-space parking deck.
Atlanta-based Novare Group and Simpson Housing are co-developing SkyHouse, which will have an address of 1701 17th Ave. S. This is Novare's third building in Nashville (joining Viridian and Encore) and its 15th SkyHouse.
“Novare Group and Simpson Housing have a long track record of delivering fabulous developments, and I look forward to seeing the success of other SkyHouse projects brought to Midtown Nashville," Benedict said in the release. "The project’s retail and abundant parking will fill a serious void in Midtown.”

Chicago's Capacity Bar Group will bring a craft beer/arcade bar concept to town with Headquarters Beercade Nashville, The Tennessean reports:
Co-owner Brian Galati said the Nashville location is targeted for opening near downtown's Broadway around December. It is expected to feature 16 rotating lines of draft beer, signature craft cocktails and up to 60 classic or vintage retro pinball and arcade games from the '80s and early '90s.
"Nashville's growing right now and increasing in popularity," Galati said. "We fell in love with the city and think it's a perfect fit for our concept."
Capacity Bar Group is negotiating to lease the space Headquarters Beercade Nashville will occupy, he said, declining to reveal the specific location.
Low-income and local laborers now stand to potentially gain more work opportunities on large, city-funded projects after Metro voters took to the polls in support of Amendment 3.
The passage of Amendment 3 in the Metro Charter means that any Metro-funded construction project over $100,000 will be required to hire at least 40 percent of its labor within Davidson County. What's more, at least 10 percent of hires must be low-income individuals.
Members of the Nashville Chamber of Commerce have spoken out against the amendment, saying it will limit economic growth in the city and amount to a "nightmare" for out-of-town construction companies interested in building in Nashville.
But political activists who pushed for the passage of the amendment call it a path toward sustainability for communities looking for work in the Nashville area.
Amendment 3, which was the only amendment on the ballot to pass, carried 56,677 votes to push it forward, with 41, 486 voting against the amendment as of 10:52 p.m.
