  1. A Wedgewood-Houston building in which mops were once made will be adaptively updated to accommodate the 15-showroom Nashville Design Collective. The two-parcel site has an address of 510 Merritt St. and is located about half a block east of Corsair Distillery and Sassafras Market & Deli. Nashville Design Collective LLC acquired the property last week for $6 million, according to Metro records. The seller was BAC Properties LLC. According to a release, the two buildings — spanning a collective 45,000 square feet — will offer leasable showroom space and private/semi-private office space for interior designers, architects and trade professionals. Several of the entities slated to take space will be new to Nashville. The release does not identify these entities, but about half the buildings’ spaces are pre-leased. The business is being billed as Nashville’s “first official design center.” Formerly home to a mop-making facility operated by GSC Manufacturing, the structures will see their upgrades begin this fall. Carter Group, which is based in Wedgewood-Houston, is serving as general contractor. The project’s interior designer and architect are going unnamed at this point. GSC is now operating in South Carolina. Specifically, the Nashville Design Collective, (stylized as “N D C”) will offer an outdoor deck, multiple meeting spaces, conference rooms and dedicated event space for product launches, book signings and trunk shows. A casual café and surface parking will also be available. Anne Puricelli, co-owner and general manager of the collective, said the Nashville Design Collective space has been designed “to integrate seamlessly into the already talented group” of the city’s designers, architects and builders. “While each individual showroom serves a destination in and of itself, the N D C will offer a comprehensive and complementary selection of textiles, lighting, furniture, kitchen and bath resources, flooring, fabric and design services together under one roof — allowing designers, influencers and residents to be inspired and source right here in Nashville,” Puricelli said.

    True, but Sobro/the gulch isn't in the picture. The Yards, 5th+ broad, endeavor, and the gulch union has yet to be completed
  3. There's also live on the green, and the ascend amphitheater.

    They could possibly make the store size smaller to save money, and at the same time focus on the online market.

    That's cool, hopefully we eventually get either one.

    The thing about modifying their business for online is that it works well with small items, but for furniture/large items not so much. Unless they want to charge 100+ dollars for shipping.

    Not a smart move by Ikea. They could have profited big if they had a mid south store for Kentucky and mid/east TN. Especially with the redevelopment of Antioch .
  8. That is true, initial cost doesn't measure up to the entirety of building efficiency, but it does play some part in it.
  9. True, but initially time to build and cost is lower for a neighborhood. It's significantly higher initially for high rises, long term wise it's cheaper.
  10. We could build taller near midtown, south Nashville, or even closer to west Nashville. I think the FAA rules aren't as strict in those areas?
  11. Oh no one more level higher, that's so terrifying.

  14. I agree, a crown would have made 505 stand out more.
