Nashville Post has learned that Bristol Development Group is not having discussions with Publix officials regarding the grocer anchoring an apartment building the company wanted to build on the Music Row Roundabout site.
According to a source close to the situation, there are no other companies having discussions with Publix officials for the Lionstone Group-owned site (seen in this photo to the right of the roundabout).
Other sources with knowledge of the proposed project said a deal between Bristol and Publix failed to materialize.
Publix could not be reached for comment.
In November, Bristol said it was in discussions with a major retail entity that would anchor an approximately 240-unit apartment building proposed for the site. Bristol declined to identify the retailer at that time.
It is now unclear if Bristol will proceed with purchasing the site and building on it.
Bristol issued the following statement: “We don’t comment on specific sites we are interested in.”
Bristol was hoping to buy from Houston-based Lionstone a portion of a three-acre site that sits within the 1500 block wedged between Demonbreun and Division streets and facing the Musica statue. LUI Nashville Roundabout, a Lionstone entity, still owns the land.
