Dallas-based Phoenix Property Co. will request a modification to the Metro's Music Row Urban Design Overlay in its efforts to develop a seven-story, 194-unit residential building with some ground-floor retail.
The company has created PPC Land Ventures for the effort and has submitted various images (see one below) to the Metro Planning Department. No name for the proposed project is included with the Metro documents.
The Metro Planning Commission will vote on the request Thursday. Phoenix Property has enlisted Nashville-based Littlejohn Engineering Associates to handle the UDO change request (read here), which includes height and parking garage considerations. Jason Runnels, Phoenix Property executive vice president and principal, could not be reached for comment.
If constructed, the building would sit on a three-parcel Midtown site located catty-corner from Off Broadway Shoes and currently home to a surface parking lot and a non-descript building.
The parcels are located at 105, 107 and 109 16th Ave. S. on the east and are bordered by McGavock Street on the south and 17th Avenue on the west. The site is located within the Metro Development and Housing Agency’s Arts Center Redevelopment District and, as such, the MDHA Design Review Committee will need to approve the building’s exterior design.

Buckingham Cos. has a new site plan — with an updated image — of its large-scaled mixed-use project slated for Midtown.
A spring groundbreaking looms for the long-planned development, with Buckingham Cos. planning to prep the site — located at the point at which Broadway, Division Street and 21st Avenue South converge — in April, according to sources. Construction should start in May or June, the sources said.
According to the site plan, the project is being called Buckingham Midtown. Crain Construction will be the general contractor jointly with Buckingham Cos.
To front Division Street and have a 2021 Broadway address, the 17-story, 598,480-square-foot building will offer a 180-room hotel, 350 apartment units, a 630-space parking garage and office, restaurant and retail spaces. Its price tag is an estimated $120 million.
Based in Indiana, Buckingham Cos. is undertaking the project as Buckingham LUV LLC. Company officials could not be reached for comment.
The Metro Codes Administration Department has issued a permit that will allow Nashville-based general contractor Carter Group LLC to build out space within a Midtown building to be home to steakhouse Union Common.
The permit is valued at $980,000.
Located at the Broadway and Division Street split, the building is part of an H.G. Hill Realty Co. redevelopment of space that last housed a convenience market and The Great Escape. Pizza eatery Two Boots Nashville occupies the finished space in the building. A portion of the space that will accommodate Union Common is in a recently constructed building.
Louisville-based restaurant group DC Management will own and operate Union Common.
A key piece of Midtown land has been rezoned to allow for a mixed-used project.
However, property owner Midtown Properties LLC does not have immediate plans to redevelop the site.
Located at 1812 Broadway and recognized for a grand historic structure that is home to law firm Rudy Wood Winstead & Williams, the site is now zoned mixed-use intensive, which will accommodate, according to the Metro Planning Department, a “high-intensity mixture” of residential, retail and office uses. The land had been zoned commercial core frame (CF), which allowed for parking and commercial service support. (The site is seen in the below photo courtesy of Google Maps and with the back side of Palmer Plaza in the upper right corner.)
"The property became available and my partners and I bought it because of its proximity to property we already own," Frank Rudy, Midtown Properties spokesman, told the Post. "We may expand the law firm someday, but otherwise I don't know what we'll do with the property [in the near future]."
The Metro Planning Commission approved the rezoning at its Jan. 23 meeting.

Relatedly, utility relocation will begin soon, the sources said. The Wendy’s located at 206 21st Ave. S. and within the project’s footprint recently closed.

After less than a year in business on 25th Avenue North, the folks behind Sardinia Enoteca are pulling the plug after serving dinner tonight. The upscale eatery's Miami forerunner is in better shape, they say, and deserves their full attention. Two summers ago, Tony Gallo and Pietro Vardeu signed up for 7,000 square feet in the Park View Towers building and said it was just the right time for them to jump into the hot Nashville dining scene.
