Belcourt mounts ambitious upgrade

Belcourt Theatre Executive Director Stephanie Silverman and her team are embarking on a $4.5 million expansion and renovation of the Hillsboro Village staple. The highlight of the project is the addition of a third screen but many other features of the building will get a serious facelift. Jim Ridley has the story in this week's Scene.

With the theater in its best fiscal health this century — debt is low, and some $2.2 million has already been raised even before The Belcourt goes public this week with its $4.5 million capital campaign — staffers say the timing was now or never. Shortly after the theater hosts its annual sellout holiday run of It's a Wonderful Life, The Belcourt will close, and R.C. Mathews Contractor will begin a furious push toward a grand unveiling in June 2016.

Gulch site under contract

An investor group with a local property has a Gulch property located near Peg Leg Porker under contract, Nashville Business Journal reports.

David W. Creed and Stan Snipes, senior advisers with the Nashville-area office of Sperry Van Ness | Investec, are leading the buyer entity and are part of the investment group. The two are focused on purchasing urban real estate across the U.S., Creed said, having recently bought a property in downtown Cincinnati.

The Gulch property (see here courtesy of Google Maps) has an address of 600 Ninth Ave. S. and sits on the southeast corneer of Ninth and Gleaves Street.

“As you can imagine, we are obviously very focused on our own backyard and we are very eager to purchase more real estate in Nashville,” Creed said.

“Gleaves and Division is my favorite untouched area of the Gulch," he added. "There is no question, this is a killer location for development with its proximity to the convention center, the new connector, Arnold's, Jackalope, Yazoo, Peg Leg Porker and Flyte.

Of note, the property is located next to a site that Bravo Development has under contract (read more here). Creed declined to identify the other investors in the group. He said a closing could take place in early 2016.
