After I wrote, earlier this week, a blog post regarding Texas-based Lincoln Property Company and its Hope Gardens project (read more here), local manmade environment hobbyist Ron Brewer alerted me to a tidbit. Brewer, who serves as moderator for the urbanplanet.org Nashville forum message board, had recalled seeing on the 12South Flats website that LPC will be involved in some manner with the mixed-use project.
So I called Jimmy Granbery, whose H.G. Hill Realty is teaming with Southeast Venture on the fast-materializing development (read more here). Granbery said Lincoln will manage the apartment component of the building, which will also feature retail space.
"Lincoln Properties is very experienced and respected in managing rental apartments," he said.
This is one more example of how out-of-town developers, architects, investors and property managers are increasingly doing real estate work in Nashville. And often, as will be the case with Lincoln, they are taking on various roles.
Nashville-based developer Paul McRedmond says he is finalizing both the design and construction costs for his three-story mixed-use project proposed for 12South.
“Hopefully we can then settle on a contractor and then move forward,” said McRedmond, whose retail, office and residential building would anchor the northeast corner of the Montrose and 12th avenues T-intersection.
McRedmond is working with local architect Sharon Pigott on the building’s design and with Cook Properties (Jimbo Cook) to lease the ground-level retail space. He declined to note when he might break ground on the building, for which a name has not been announced.
McRedmond purchased the lot for $68,000 in 1996. Most recently, the site was home to a lawn and garden business.
Edley's Bar-B-Que owner Will Newman and fellow 12Souther Will Smallman recently opened the doors to The Filling Station, a carry-out shop for craft beer lovers. The new venture is taking up the space formerly held by Halcyon Bicycle and appears to have found very fertile ground with its more than 20 on-tap options of local and regional brews.
They ordered over 300 full-size growlers in preparation for their Saturday opening, but had already run out by Sunday. Fear not, thirsty friends, more are on the way and they have plenty of the small sizes left. In fact, Newman promised, "We'll fill up a milk jug if you bring one in."
Fish & Co., the eatery that last moved to 12South from the Adelicia condo tower, has closed its doors. Dana Franklin reports at Bites that its high-profile spot will be taken up by the first Tennessee location of Taqueria del Sol, a fast-casual concept out of Atlanta. On the local development team for Taqueria del Sol — check out the chain's site here — is Tony Halligan, who left Stoney River Legendary Steaks almost two years ago.
The chain's website touts numerous kudos: In 2007, Bon Appétit picked Taqueria del Sol as a “Top American Restaurant” and Garden & Gun named the turnip greens one of the “100 Southern Foods You Absolutely Must Try Before You Die.”
