Mixed-use development targeted for Melrose

Alliance Residential Co. is tentatively planning a mixed-use development for the Melrose site last home to a Colonial bakery facility, according to a concept plan the Phoenix-based developer has filed with the Berry Hill Planning Commission.

Alliance has yet to close on the acquisition of the 6.4-acre site from Nashville-based Eighth South LLC and could not be reached for comment regarding when the closing is scheduled.

The site is located at 2407 Franklin Pike and is partially in Berry Hill and partially in Metro.

The concept plan shows a four-story 328-unit apartment complex and a separate building with about 71,000 square feet of retail space, primarily to front Franklin Road. If built as preliminarily proposed, the project would include upwards of 800 parking spaces for both the retail and residential buildings.

Earlier this month, Alliance paid $5.15 million for Germantown site on which it plans a mixed-use development likely to be called Broadstone Germantown. Read more here.

Evergreen eyes October opening for Melrose building

Nashville-based boutique developer Evergreen Real Estate is targeting an October opening for its two-story mixed-use building to accompany the Gale Park neighborhood in Melrose.

The building (seen below) is located on the northeast corner of the Gale Park site and fronts the surface parking lot that services a recently renovated Kroger, among other retailers. It will be home to both retail and office space (including the Evergreen office). For the past approximately three years, the boutique development company has operated from the leasing office in its Germantown Place building fronting Jefferson Street on the city’s north side.

For the project, Parkside Builders has served as the general contractor, with DA|AD as the architect.

“We wanted something cool and that would transition from the Kroger building to the Gale Park houses and pick up some design elements of both,” said Aaron White, Evergreen co-principal with Hunter Connelly. “There was a lot to pull off, and DA|AD nailed it.”

The structure, which remains unnamed, carries an approximately $1 million price tag. Evergreen will operate from about a third of the 3,000 square feet on the second floor, while the aforementioned Parkside Builders, which served as general contractor for the recently completed Gale Park, will occupy about half of the first floor.
