September opening slated for MetroCenter apartment development

Atlanta-based The Residential Group plans to open next month its now-named One MetroCenter Apartments in North Nashville.

Relatedly, the Atlanta-based company has tapped Pegasus Residential, which is also based in Georgia’s largest city, to handle management of the 320-unit apartment building. The property is located at 45 Vantage Way in MetroCenter.

Of note, the four-building One MetroCenter Apartments is the first residential development of its type located east of Rosa Parks Boulevard. Kurt Alexander, Residential Group principal, said a leasing trailer is now on the site.

“We will have our first move-in in the beginning of September,” he said.

One MetroCenter Apartments units will average 881 square feet, considerable larger than the average units found in apartment buildings located in downtown and Midtown. Units will rent for, on average, $1.75 per foot, Alexander said.

The Residential Group, which developed the 244-unit West End Village at the southwest corner of 31st Avenue and Long Boulevard in West End Park, has teamed with Horsepower Realty on One MetroCenter Apartments.

NeXovation blames lender in Superspeedway morass; Dover in talks with others

The planned sale of Nashville Superspeedway to locally based NeXovation has fallen through, but NeXovation CEO Robb Sexton says he's not giving up. He says a big reason his team hasn't closed on its $46 million deal is that its lender hasn't followed through and, as such, caused lengthy delays. Now that the Dover deal has expired, NeXovation can look for other funders to back its plans.

"We have invested millions of dollars in the Speedway sales process and we are not going to allow the negative actions of others to deter us from our goal," Sexton said in a statement issued late Friday.
