Planned WeHo project takes step forward

The Magness Group is hoping to close by year’s end on a Wedgewood-Houston site on which the Nashville-based developer eyes a 29-unit residential project expected to combine townhomes and flats.

The company’s effort took a step forward last week when the Metro Planning Commission unanimously approved a specific planning rezoning.

The Metro Council must now vote on the rezoning. A date has not been set.

“We’re excited about moving forward with the project and thank South Nashville Action People, Metro Councilman Colby Sledge and the neighbors for their support and their interaction at the meetings we have had,” William Smallman, Magness Group owner, told the Post.

Smallman enlisted Nashville-based Civil Site Design Group to get the 0.93-acre site rezoned.

The property is located at the southwest corner of the intersection of Martin Street and Hamilton Avenue.

Site shows industrial-esque residential building eyed for Wedgewood-Houston

Core Development now has a website for its Twelve60 Martin residential project planned for Wedgewood-Houston.

The website (see here) does not offer full details, and Core officials could not be reached for comment Friday morning.

However, images show the building, to sit at the northeast corner of the intersection of Merritt Avenue and Martin Street, would rise five stories and offer an industrial-esque exterior vibe. Village Real Estate Services (a Core sister company) is listed on the website, which references "townhouse units."

Smith Gee Studio is the architect for the project. Of note, the Nashville-based company has designed Core’s Six10 Merritt (read more here), planned for a site located across Martin from Twelve60 Martin.

The two buildings will be part of what Nashville-based Core is calling The Finery.

Project planned for WeHo lands new developers

A Wedgewood-Houston site originally to be redeveloped by Aerial Development Group and The Magness Group has been sold, with the buyers planning to build up to 48 flats, townhomes and single-family homes, The Tennessean reports.

Real estate investor Carl Adams Jr. and Mt. Juliet-based Landmark Homes will team on the project, which will still be called Southgate Station, according to the morning daily. 

Adams paid $3.35 million for the 1.67-acre site, which is located at the northeast and northwest corners of the intersection of Southgate Avenue and Pillow Street about five blocks south of the split at Houston and Martin streets, a point many consider WeHo’s epicenter.

A December start is being eyed as the site is already zoned, The Tennessean reports.

Corsair eyes August's end for WeHo operations

Corsair Distillery officials are targeting the end of August to be operational in a building located at the southwest corner of the intersection of Merritt Avenue and Martin Street in Wedgewood-Houston.

Darek Bell, Corsair founder, said the focus for the building (see image here courtesy of Google Maps) will be on distilling whisky. The site is located across Merritt from a parcel on which Core Development is targeting Six10 Merritt at The Finery (read here). In addition, a building located at 611 Merritt is being rehabbed for Thirty Tigers (read here).

Corsair will continue operations in facilities in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Bells Bend and Marathon Village.

Bell said the company eventually will also operate from the Kirby Welding Building, also located on Martin. He said he is not ready to disclose a date for which work will begin in that facility.

“We love the maker culture of the neighborhood and are exited to be a part of Wedgewood Houston,” Bell said.

Corsair incorporated in 2007 and began operations in 2008 in Bowling Green with a 50-gallon still, two employees and 2,500 square feet of space, Bell said. The company now has 5,200 gallons of still capacity and 24 employees. It will operate from 28,500 square feet spanning five 5 facilities by end of the year.
