Charlotte Ave/Charlotte Park/Sylvan Park/Bellevue/West Nash./Nations

Recommended Posts

Signs with renderings on the lot cornered in by Charlotte, 31st Ave N, and 440. Looks like 2 midrise (8-10 stories each) buildings. Didn’t see anything on the development map though.

Odd that the building permit was just pulled as they have been construction workers on site for the Trader Joe’s White Bridge for the past 2-3 weeks.

Alright, I swung by Project 615 and snapped a shot of the backside of the silos. They are indeed covered in vines, but they're not looking terribly green right now. Hopefully they're just dormant?

  Welcome to the forum!     About the vines, I think more likely they were sprayed with roundup and will be scraped off.      After all, this is peak "vine season" here in Middle TN.

In looking, they began pulling sub contractor permits for the space in mid April. Likely for demolition and new wall layout. You can do a lot of work pre actual permit.

Thanks for the welcome! Agreed that they look dead. I posted that photo in reference to the render that @markhollin had posted (on page 56, reproduced below), since the render seemed to really double down on the whole ivy-covered silos aesthetic and I recalled there being quite a bit of it to begin with, which at least a year ago looked pretty alive. But it looks like only the ivy on the front corner is alive, whether intentionally or not (the back ivy may have already been dead, or they might have hit the roots during construction), and I suppose if they want that post-apocalyptic reclaimed-by-nature feel, they can always grow/paint more later. Another mural could be cool, too ... as long as it doesn't say "Nashville" or "Nations" on it - we have enough of that already.

Briley / Metro looking at buying 800 acres at Bells Bend.

https://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2019/06/24/greenspace-preservation-bells-bend-graves-farm-old-hickory-road/1549349001/

Mayor David Briley announced a plan Monday night to buy nearly 800 acres of open space in the Bells Bend area of northwest Nashville.

The $9.3 million purchase of 789 acres about 15 miles from downtown would be paid with funds set aside for new Nashville greenways. Metro Council must first approve the expense this fall. 

"Preserving and adding greenspace is vital as our city continues to grow and develop," Briley said. "These nearly 800 acres of farmable land have great potential for food production, sustainability efforts and agritourism."

Along with the obvious bad look of buying vacant land in a budget crunch, it is extra irksome to try to spend Greenway funds on land that's only accessible by car (I know it's possible to bike, but I don't think the average person would enjoy the Ashland City Highway bicycle experience), and not particularly close to most Nashvillians. Selfishly, I think that money would be much better spent on a bike/ped bridge between Bell's Bend and Cleece's Ferry. That would do a lot more to allow citizens to enjoy the area than a former sod farm.

My two cents - When will an opportunity to buy ~800 acres of land within a 10 mile radius of downtown for under 10 million dollars present itself again? In the immediate future, not a great look given the budget issues the city has but sometimes you cant pass up a good opportunity when it comes.

I agree with Greg.  If this is just a real estate investment then it shouldn't come from greenway funding.  Greenways should be accessible to the most number of people possible, ideally reachable without a car.  Greenways have the most value when there is connectivity to safe bike routes and this fails that test.

Agreed, but the city shouldn’t be using greenway funds to do so, especially when they still have a closed bridge on the Shelby Bottoms greenway, and plenty of areas in town that could use greenways/enhanced bike lanes.

Looks like Brightside Bake Shop's West Nashville location will be in the former church building @ 4909 Indiana ave in the Nations.

If by "Bavarian" you mean it has about as much space on top of the hill as Neuschwanstein Castle, then yes

Plans for a 94-unit townhome, 170 unit hotel, and 18,000 sq. ft. retail space at Old Hickory Blvd. and Sonya Drive (on the SE corner of I-40/OHB exit)  development in Bellevue advanced this week after they were approved on second reading by Metro Council. The first phase of construction will be the residential portion, and could begin in August.
