Developer releases rendering of planned Berry Hill project

Lennar apartment building to offer 320 units

Lennar Multifamily Communities has released a rendering for its 320-unit apartment building to be constructed on Franklin Road in Berry Hill.

The company is targeting a late September start for the not-yet-named building, with environmental sample work having been done earlier this week.

The site for LMC’s planned building was last home to Jaguar of Nashville and sits at the northeast corner of the T-intersection of Franklin Road (Eighth Avenue South) and Craighead Street. The building will be located a half-block south of Stonehenge Real Estate Group's recently opened 23Hundred at Berry Hill apartment building.

The Preston Partnership, which is co-headquartered in Atlanta and Washington, D.C., and was the lead architect for Midtown condominium tower The Adelicia, is designing the building. The structure will stand five stories at its tallest point.

“We are looking forward to starting the first of many developments in Nashville,” said Christopher Cassidy, LMC Southeast division president. “We believe that Nashville has all of the characteristics and qualities to continue to attract new jobs, an abundance of young professionals and continue to be a leader in the Southeastern United States."

Lennar is also hoping to develop a 17-story mixed-use tower that would rise in Midtown (read more here). Cassidy declined to comment on the status of the project.

Lennar Multifamily Communities is an affiliate of Lennar Homes and a subsidiary of Miami-based Lennar Corp.
