High-profile former Church of Christ property sells for $1.86M

Spiva-Hill entity buys Charlotte Avenue site

The West Nashville site of the former Charlotte Avenue Church of Christ — a high-profile property at the northeast corner of 46th and Charlotte avenues — has sold.

According to documents from the Davidson County Register of Deeds, 4508 Charlotte Pike Partners paid $1,823,640 for  seven tracts located on 46th Avenue between Charlotte and Alabama avenues. The seller was Charlotte Heights Church of Christ, the congregation created by the merger of Charlotte Avenue and West Nashville Heights Church of Christ.

The photo at left (courtesy of Google Maps) shows the former church, which has since been razed. A previous attempt to redevelop the site (seen in the upper right quadrant in the photo below) with a Rite Aid Pharmacy building failed to materialze due to citizen opposition and the developer's declining to site the building in accordance with Metro's urban zoning overlay, which requires new construction be at least as pedestrian friendly as accommodating to motorists. The matter drew headlines a few years ago (read more here and here).

The buyer shares an address with Spiva-Hill Investments, located on Hillsboro Pike. Principal Nick Spiva did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
