Germantown lands deep dish pizza eatery

Chicago-style deep dish pizza is coming to Germatown, with the corner retail spot of Fourth Avenue and Monroe Street slated to be home to 312 Pizza Company. The eatery also will serve up a range of salads, sandwiches and pasta but will its pies rival those of Carmen's and Nancy's? We'll soon see.

Staci Bockman says she and her business partners are all originally from Chicago and decided there was a niche in Nashville that needed to be filled. "We want to integrate Chicago food with everything that's going on in Nashville," she explains.

Bockman adds that in addition to the famous deep-dish, 312 Pizza will serve her hometown's second-best-known pizza: Chicago-style thin-crust. (Nothing like the yeasty crust of a New York pie, Chicago thin crust is very crispy, almost cracker-like, and the slices are squared off, not wedge-shaped.)

Mixed-used Germantown project nears completion

The long-awaited The Square at Fourth and Madison project in Germantown is about 45 days from completion, with the building having secured its first retail tenant.

Located at 1200 Fourth Ave. N., the contemporary building will feature office, retail and residential spaces. The developer is 4th and Madison LLC, created by Kat and Michael Roos. The latter is a starting offensive lineman with the Tennessee Titans.

Patty Chambers, a Stevens Group Commercial Real Estate agent who will serve as leasing agent and property manager for the building, said the building’s retail space will be delivered in white box (also called vanilla box) form with concrete flooring.
The owners of a sports bar have signed a lease and will likely be the building’s first tenant. Chambers declined to disclose the identity.

“We would gladly welcome a wine and liquor store,” Chambers said. “I have some leads but not signed leases. And we would welcome a craft beer place.”

The project was announced in late 2009 and the site, at times, has seen significant periods of inactivity.

“The goal has to been to do it right,” Chambers said. “I really like the space we are about to deliver.”

Germantown project developer makes strides in landing retailer

SWH Residential Partners could be close to announcing the retailer for its The Flats at Werthan Mills project now fully underway in Germantown.

John Tirrill, managing partner of the Atlanta-based company, said SWH has enlisted Nashville-based Urban Grout Commercial Real Estate to find a retailer, likely a restaurant/bar or cafe, for the site’s warehouse space. The vintage masonry building anchors the northwest corner of the T-intersection of Taylor Street and Fifth Avenue North. The building (seen below in an image courtesy of Google Maps) fronts Fifth across from Morgan Park Place.

"We’re woking on leasing the building at Fifth and Taylor," he said, noting Urban Grout is talking to prospective tenants but declining to offer details. "We’re making progress, and I would hope we would make announcement by the end of the year.

The Flats at Werthan Mills will feature 282 apartments and carry a price tag of approximately $40 million. The development will serve as an anchor, of sorts, in the part of Germantown that transitions to Salemtown to the north.
