Indeed, the Edgefield Sports Bar is closing because owner Charlie "Buzz" Edens wants to retire at age 69. He has no plans to reopen elsewhere.  He had a great relationship with his landlords, a group that includes McClain Towery and Elliot Kyle.  They plan on keeping the building.
 

“Buzz is respected. We had a friendly and mutual parting of the ways,” Kyle said. “Edgefield Sports Bar is a place where great memories have been made, and we want to respect the memory of the place.”

Kyle said some upgrades will be made to the Edgefield Sports Bar space but that the — given the place has been an institution, of sorts — “intention going forward is to maintain the essence of the business” with any future tenant.

Kyle said the four owners will be in no rush to find a replacement tenant, as they want to be respectful of Edens and his loyal customer base.

“We certainly are not going to tear down the building or make major renovations,” he said.

This might be a dumb question, but was there an architectural reason they didn’t start with the units fronting Shelby for an immediate aesthetic transformation of the “Gateway to East Nashville”? Those will be replaced dead last if I understand correctly 

This diagram, from the site linked above, shows that the block on Shelby and the interstate may start in late 2019.

In the Scene article about Edgefield closing they mention "Edens has a long-standing personal history with East Nashville’s old-school bar scene, having previously worked on Main Street at the long-closed Shamrock Inn."  I tried to search for this but came up with nothing.  Does anyone have any details or pictures.

Has anyone heard anything regarding the Bill Martin's building at 1105 Fatherland? I noticed it's no longer listed for sale on Loopnet.

March 1st, Bill Martin's Grocery is to be off the site.

Not to be overly pessimistic, but I’m personally more nervous. STR village will get the most bang for your buck.

According to @bwithers1 on an EN Fbk post yesterday, it has NOT been confirmed directly by Publix.  Someone surmised it a while back from a clue on the SP.  However, the project would most likely not be going ahead without that tenant in place. To me that means they have a grocer under contract that is most likely Publix. I believe BW is just being cautious and not wanting to have it come back if it were to somehow not happen. Which is completely understandable being a public figure. 

So beyond the dumpster (and extreme magnification) of the site plan, a newer co-worker of mine has mentioned Publix is the anchor tenant and the drive thru building is designed to be a starbucks.
