Stix completion date extended as contractor added

Nashville-based Long Foundation Drilling Co. has been enlisted to supplement efforts related to the installation of downtown public art piece Stix, the completion date for which has been extended to year’s end.

Originally, the installation was to have been finished by Oct. 31. However, the drilling process has been more complicated than originally anticipated, according to Jennifer Cole, Metro Arts Commission executive director. 

Nashville-based Rains Electric Co. is serving as contractor and hired Long, Cole said.

Sitx will anchor the Korean Veterans Boulevard roundabout adjacent to the southwest corner of the Music City Center.

Metro Arts selected UCLA art professor and Silver Lake, California-based Christian Moeller to create the piece, which carries a cost of $750,000 for site work, installation and creation.

To eventually consist of 27 70-foot-tall native hardwood poles (eight currently are standing on the site), the Stix pieces will be painted red orange, light blue, dark blue, light green and egg white, paying homage to the Native Americans who originally populated Middle Tennessee.

Relatedly, Panattoni has appointed JLL as exclusive leasing agent of the proposed Class A industrial park, which will consist of three buildings spanning a collective 600,000 square feet, according to a release.

The JLL team handling the assignment includes Bo Fulk, vice president, and Jimmy Armistead, associate broker. The team will work closely with Jeff Konieczny, development manager of Panattoni. 

“With greater than 30,000 people moving to Nashville annually, the need for more quality warehouse space close to the city center continues to grow accordingly,” Bo Fulk, vice president of JLL Nashville, said in the release. “Simply put, demand is outpacing supply. Skyline Distribution Park will be perfectly positioned to service Nashville and the region as a whole. Visible from I-24 and I-65, tenants of Skyline will have direct access to downtown Nashville, I-24, I-65 and I-40 via Briley Parkway.”
