Workers and machinery were seen Thursday on the Gulch site that will be home to MarketStreet Enterprises' mixed-use building that will front 11th Avenue and offer Demonbreun Street Viaduct access. In the past, MarketStreet officials have called the building Gulch Crossing, but sources say a new name might be forthcoming. ESa is designing the structure, full-scale work on which is expected to begin no later than early July. The below rendering is outdated but gives the viewer a basic idea as to the orientation of the building.
Gulch retailer E.T. Burk has closed. MarketStreet Equities, which owns the building from which the mid-century modern furniture and home accessories store operated, is expected to soon demolish the structure as part of its redevelopment of the site. The Nashville Business Journal has reported E.T. Burk will relocate to a central business district building located on Broadway.
With Monday’s announcement that Burger Republic plans to open this fall in Pine Street Flats in The Gulch, a milestone has been reached.
The craft burger eatery (read more here) marks the 30th tenant already established or set to open in various buildings controlled by Gulch master developer MarketStreet Enterprises.
Notwithstanding past tenants that have since left MarketStreet commercial space, the 30-tenant mark is likely the single-greatest number the boutique development company has had at any one time operating. The mixed-use district, located on downtown’s southwestern fringe, has become, arguably, Nashville's second most signfiicant retail hotspot, trailing only Green Hills.
The other 29 MarketStreet tenants — with most operating and a handful planned — are as follows (listed in no particular order):
Bullets & Mullets
Kocktails & Kourture
Two Old Hippies
Kenny & Co.
Sips n Strokes
Bond Coffee Company
Hops & Crafts
Music City Flats
Rumours Wine Bar
The Turnip Truck
Adagio Massage Co & Spa
