Distinctive cottage infill project looms for West End Park

Homes will offer garages

Nashville Urban Living Partners is planning to break ground by April on West Park Village, a 15-home cottage style infill project slated for West End Park, according to Jeff Zeitlin, the development entity’s managing partner.

The development — the homes for which will each offer garages (unusual for cottage-style infill of this type in Nashville) — will front Burns Avenue, a dead-end street that T-intersects with Long Boulevard. Two existing homes will need to be razed for the project to start. Nashville Urban Living Partners  is working with Dale & Associates for planning and engineering work and Quirk Designs for architectural efforts.

“Our next step is to put the investment team together,” Zeitlin said.

Zeitlin said a combination of an urban location (West End Park is located near Vanderbilt University, the 28th/31st Avenue Connector, Centennial Park and Interstate 440) and a free-standing home will be appealing to prospective buyers. 

“The cottage style provides all the benefits of both urban and green living,” he said. “The one thing that is unique to this development is the homes will have two-car garages.”

West Park Village will have five rows of three homes (see image below), with the first row addressing Burns.

Nashville Urban Living Partners also includes The Before Company and Jim McLean, chairman of the Metro Planning Commission.
