Southern Land plans Green Hills mixed-use project

Development includes residential, retail and office at Richard Jones and Hillsboro Road

Construction will begin next year on a mixed-use development at one of the highest-profile corners of Green Hills.

Southern Land Co. plans a residential and retail project — as yet unnamed — at the southeast corner of the T-intersection of Hillsboro Road and Richard Jones Road, with construction beginning in the fall. The development will include 265 efficiency, one- and two-bedroom units, along with townhouse and penthouse options. Those units will range from 500 to 2,500 square feet, with common amenities including a fitness center, a private clubroom and a rooftop pool. Leasing will begin in the spring of 2015. The building will be multi-level with the highest section planned at 14 stories.

In addition, the project calls for approximately 5,000 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space and 24,000 square feet of Class A office space.

"Careful attention has been given to all design aspects," said Tim Downey, CEO of Southern Land. "We’ve been working closely with the City of Nashville to ensure that our plan adheres to the Green Hills Urban Design Overlay. Our objective is to deliver a project that meets the goals and direction previously established for the neighborhood."

To make way for the project, the buildings home to Green Hills Gas, The Well Coffeehouse and Haury & Smith will be demolished.

Southern Land is working on two other mixed-use projects in the Greater Nashville area. In Cool Springs, the second phase of Dwell at McEwen apartments is nearing completion, with 112 new units set for delivery in January 2013. In the Rock Block, Elliston 23 is slated for a spring 2013 opening; leasing on its 331 residential units and 15,000 square feet of retail begins next month.
