Committee approves plan for proposed Germantown project

The Metro Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee approved today a conceptual site plan for a Germantown project that will incorporate the historic Elliott School building.

Nashville-based The Mainland Cos. envisions adaptively reusing the historic building and constructing two new buildings on what currently are surface parking lots that span the north side of Madison Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues. The project, which could offer 90 condominiums and/or apartments, has yet to be officially named.

Both new buildings could offer ground-level retail and restaurant businesses. Parking would be below grade.

Current historic design guidelines allow for structures of up to three stories fronting Madison and two stories along Sixth and Seventh.

"We are glad we made it through the first stage and look forward to the next step,” Mainland spokesperson Jim Cheney said. “We look forward to working closely with the city of Nashville and the Germantown community to define a great project.

Mainland has hired Nashville-based Manuel Zeitlin Architects to handle design duties.

“Our design would be in keeping with the massing, setbacks, scale and proportions of the neighborhood, Cheney added.

Mainland is under contract to buy the property from Centerstone (read more here). The due diligence period will end in June.
