MarketStreet Enterprises has secured a $53.46 million permit for its Gulch Crossing mixed-use building under construction in The Gulch. The permit includes work on first-floor retail space and a parking structure, according to Metro Codes Administration Department documents. JE Dunn Construction Co. is serving as general contractor for the project. Gulch Crossing will be located at 1033 Demonbreun St. next to Velocity.
MarketStreet Enterprises has launched a new website for it under-construction Gulch Crossing building.
The move follows the company's enlisting Susan Gorney and Crews Johnston III to handle the retail and office space leasing, respectively.
Gorney is president of Gorney Realty Co., while Johnston serves as senior managing director and principal of the Nashville office of Cassidy Turley.
Gulch Crossing is slated to open in the spring of 2015.

MarketStreet is the Metro Development and Housing Agency-appointed master developer of The Gulch (the borders of which are seen in the below image).
The U.S. Green Building Council has designated as silver LEED certified Gulch mixed-use building Pine Street Flats.
As such, the seven-story 296-apartment-unit structure is the largest multi-unit residential project in Tennessee to garner LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) status. Located at the southeast corner of the Pine Street and 11th Avenue South intersection, Pine Street Flats also offers 17,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, and a 584-space parking garage.
Nashville-based MarketStreet Enterprises, the Metro-appointed master developer of The Gulch, developed the building and announced the LEED certification today. The company engaged greenSTUDIO, a division of Nashville-based Hastings Architecture Associates and led by director Mike Leonard, to facilitate and manage the LEED certification process.
“Pine Street Flats continues MarketStreet’s vision of the Gulch’s urban redevelopment, which is to create lasting, positive changes to downtown’s built environment,” Jay Turner, managing director of MarketStreet, said in a release. “This project transformed three acres of brownfield land into a vibrant, mixed-use [building] that gives Nashvillians the opportunity to live and enjoy an environmentally conscious, urban neighborhood.”
Recognized by the USGBC in the LEED Building Design and Construction 2009 rating system, Pine Street Flats earned exemplary performance credits for the creation of open space and the use of regional materials during construction. Regional priority credits were awarded for public transportation access, water use reduction and optimized energy performance.
During that same year, The Gulch was designated the first LEED-certified neighborhood in the South under the LEED for Neighborhood Development rating system.
Austin Smith and Nick Jacobson are moving forward with their plans for Party Fowl, a fried chicken restaurant concept destined for the Eighth-and-Division intersection where The Gulch meets SoBro. Matt Rogers at Eater Nashville has some the details.
The groundbreaking of a planned 14-story 200-room Residence Inn by Marriott in SoBro may have stalled.
Atlanta-based hotel developer North Point Hospitality Group had hoped to begin by the end of 2013 work on the hotel. If built, the Marriott would anchor the southeast corner of the Fifth Avenue South and Korean Veterans Boulevard intersection, primarily fronting KVB.
Responding to a email the Post sent Tuesday morning, a North Point spokeswoman said the company, which first announced its timetable in January 2013, had no update. The email correspondence followed a similar exchange between North Point and the Post in late 2013.
Relatedly, North Point said in January 2013 that by early 2015, it expects to begin Phase II, which will include a 150-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott.
It is unclear if North Point has experienced a delay with one or both hotels or if the company simply has modified its original hoped-for start date. However, various local hotel projects now underway or finished within the past few years required at least a year to break ground after initial announcements.
Interestingly and coincidentally, one of those delayed projects — Concord Hospitality’s fully under-construction project in the 1800 block of West End Avenue — includes, like the proposed North Point development, both a SpringHill Suites and a Residence Inn.
On a similar theme, Chattanooga-based Vision Hospitality, which is finishing in The Gulch a Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott, bought its Division Street site in November 2011 but did not break ground until late 2012.

A two-block segment of 12th Avenue South in The Gulch will be closed for five days starting Saturday as the tower crane at the Twelve Twelve construction site is disassembled, according to the Metro Public Works Department. Through Wednesday, 12th will be closed from Pine Street on the south to Demonbreun Street on the north. Metro Police will assist in redirecting traffic, Public Works said in a release.
