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.
