Easement issued related to planned MDHA garage

A sidewalk easement has been issued related to the Metro retail and parking garage structure planned for a portion of the property located at the southwest corner of Church Street and Fifth Avenue South within downtown’s central business district.

According to Davidson County Register of Deeds documents, Metro and 505 LLC have agreed upon the easement, with the latter entity created by Giarratana Nashville to eventually develop a combination residential and retail tower (to be called 505 CST) on an adjacent portion of the overall site (read here).

The Metro Development and Housing Agency will develop the building with retail space and a 1,200-space parking garage (read here), with on-site work tentatively slated to start by year’s end.  

The site, currently used as a service parking lot, can be seen here in an image courtesy of Google Maps.

The data behind our boom

Music City's recent history is one of growth uninterrupted. New residents continue to flock here in big numbers and they very often want to live in or near the region's core.
