The 1.48-acre parking lot at 10 11th Avenue — essentially under the Broadway bridge — was offically owned by Gannett Satellite Information Network. It sold today for $1.6 million to CHP LLC, which is registered to Nashville developer Jim Caden, a principal with M Street Entertainment Group. That's the company behind popular Gulch eateries Virago, Kayne Prime and Whiskey Kitchen.
