Berry Hill apartment project sees site work begin

Lennar Multifamily Communities has begun core drilling related to its planned multi-unit apartment building to be constructed on Eighth Avenue South/Franklin Road in Berry Hill.

The site, located at the northeast corner of the T-intersection of Craighead Street and Franklin Road, was last home to Jaguar of Nashville. Lennar has been targeting a late-September date for full-scale work on the site.

The Preston Partnership, which is co-headquartered in Atlanta and Washington, D.C., and was the lead architect for Midtown condominium tower The Adelicia, is designing the building. The structure will be four stories at its tallest point.

Below is a concept rendering that provides an approximate visual for the Berry Hill building.

City Winery Nashville sets opening date

City Winery Nashville — the cosmopolitan night spot that is expected to help spur growth within SoBro — will open Oct. 1.

A combination restaurant, music venue and fully functioning winery, City Winery will be located at 609 LaFayette St. and will be the fourth City Winery location, joining those in New York, Chicago and Napa Valley, California.

The facility will be housed in a 30,000-square-foot warehouse space that is being dramatically overhauled (read more here). City Winery Nashville will feature a 300-seat concert hall, restaurant and private dining operation. A head chef has not been announced yet, but the menu will feature more than 400 wines and house-made City Winery selections on tap, according to a release.

“We’ve been eyeing Nashville for a long time and we’re thrilled to finally become a part of its flourishing cultural and culinary scene,” Michael Dorf, City Winery founder and CEO, said in the relase. “The heart of City Winery is its music and what better place than Music City to showcase all types of music in a unique, upscale setting with fine wine and food. We can’t wait to open our doors and provide our guests with a one-of-a-kind concert and dining experience.”

City Winery has a series of soft opening events planned leading up to October’s grand opening. It has partnered with the Americana Music Association to host an awards show after party and has booked a full calendar of shows during the Americana Music Festival. It will also serve as the after-party location for the second annual Music City Food + Wine Festival.

Images, info show planned North Gulch project with multiple uses

Boyle Investment Inc. has now placed on its website detailed images and information regarding the major North Gulch project it will undertake with both HCA and Northwestern Mutual Real Estate Services.

If the massive development, called Capitol View, unfolds as the team envisions, it likely will represent the single-largest (in terms of scale, acreage and number of buildings) built-from-scratch urban project in Nashville’s history.

A site plan for the approximately 32 acres shows six so-called blocks (each with a letter) comprising various uses. Specifically, the info notes 1 million square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and grocery space, 1,000 residential units, two hotels and an urban park/event space. (See here.)

Of note, Boyle is stressing Capitol View will offer long-standing urban placemaking concepts including walkability, a sense of arrival, street hierarchy, mixed-use buildings and the allowing of multiple modes of transportation. Atlanta-based Cooper Carry is handling architectural services.

Boyle officials could not be reached for comment.
