Entertainment and event venue company TopGolf International Inc. is looking to open a Nashville location.
The Dallas-based company is currently negotiating for a site located east of Germantown between the Cumberland River and the inner-interstate loop, according to The Tennessean. Sequatchie Concrete Service owns the 14-acre property, the address for which is 306 Cowan St.. (See the general area here in an image courtesy of Google Maps, with the site located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Cowan and Jefferson Street.)
Nashville Business Journal first reported TopGolf was eyeing Nashville for a location.
TopGolf operates technology-driven driving ranges and entertainment complexes. The company operates, or is planning to open, 21 locations in 10 states.
Alliance Residential Co. has landed a $11.3 million permit to construct a parking deck and garage for its Broadstone Germantown project now underway in the fast-changing North Nashville district.
In November, the Phoenix-based developer closed on the $5.15 million purchase of Germantown property — bordered by Second and Third avenues on the east and west, respectively, and Madison and Jefferson streets on the north and south, respectively.
Broadstone Germantown will be a five-story 276-unit apartment building with ground-level retail.

The owners of Steadfast Coffee, which operates in Germantown, have landed a permit to have extra space for their café built out, according to Metro Codes Department documents.
The job will involve the finishing of about 1,640 square feet in the building known as the home of coworking space The Skillery, developed by Priam Ventures. Steadfast Coffee serves as the in-house café for Skillery users.
Brentwood-based Steelhead Building Group is serving as general contractor, with the permit valued at $215,314. Of note, Steelhead is the GC for a development located across the street and for which Priam Ventures also is serving as developer. (Read more here.)
The Steadfast Coffee address is 1321 Sixth Ave. N.
R.D. Herbert & Sons — one of Nashville’s oldest continually operating businesses — will move from Germantown to Cockrill Bend in West Davidson County in February.
The move is being dictated by the roofing and sheet metal company selling its property, located at 1407 Third Ave. N., to Charlotte-based Proffitt Dixon Partners, which plans a 249-unit residential project to be called Fountains at Germantown on the site (read more here).
Herbert & Sons has operated from the site since 1986 and in Nashville since 1946.
Houston Herbert, company president and owner, said about 60 employees will make the move.
“Germantown is changing so much that I thought it was a good time to relocate,” Herbert (pictured) said. “The employees are excited about a new beginning in the company’s history.”
Herbert said he and Proffitt Dixon Partners will close on the sale in late January. Herbert & Sons will then have until Feb. 25 to vacate the space.
Of note, Herbert’s father (R.D. Herbert) co-designed the building (see here in an image courtesy of Google Maps) with a local architect.
Herbert & Sons initially will lease the new space on Cockrill Bend Drive.
“But at some point, we intend to build a new facility,” Herbert said.
The Metro Planning Commission on Thursday approved two requests for specific plan zoning related to projects targeted for North Nashville, including that of Columbus-based Lifestyle Communities.
