Apartment building targeted for Gulch-area site

Three-story structure would feature 41 units

Nashville-based Gulchetto Enterprises Inc. is planning a 41-unit, three-story apartment building for a residential area located on the south side of the inner-interstate loop from the Gulch.

The developer will go before the Metro Planning Commission on Thursday, June 12, to request to rezone the site, located at 1212 Hawkins St. and 1119 and 1121 Sigler St., from multi-unit residential to specific plan. The SP would provide for additional flexibility of design. The Metro Planning Department staff has recommended an approval.

Byron Roberts and Bill Ruff own the land and are working with Jody Roberts and local developer Brent Smith. Roberts could not be reached for comment.

The building would stand 35 feet at its tallest point and offers fully underground interior parking. Nashville-based Root Architecture (stylized as "rootARCH") is designing the building.

Barge Cauthen & Associates is handling land planning and engineering duties for Gulchetto Enterprises.
