I had heard there was big trouble in little China. This explains it.

BTW, anyone having issues signing in or posting replies or messages? Sometimes I can get in and sometimes not. Downtown resident is not able to sign in.

Me, too.  I had to close the tab and get some actual work done.  When my Pomodoro said it was break time again, the UP site was working again.

Jim Reed Automotive Inc. is in two separate lawsuits over its 11 acre property. Martin Management Group, Inc.(which currently operates the Hyundai and Subaru dealerships on the site since 2011) is suing for rights to the property at 1406-1408 Broadway.  Hines Investments Management Holdings out of Houston (with plans for a 6 tower development on the site) signed a purchase contract for the land with Reed in 2020, and they are also suing, alleging that Reed violated the contract. 

With both Martin Management and Hines asking for their property rights to be enforced, Jim Reed Automotive faces a major dilemma. If an arbitrator rules in favor of Reed Automotive, Hines could follow through with its land buy. But if Martin Management comes out on top, Hines would lose its chance to buy the land if Martin Management could match the price of Hines’ purchase offer.

So if Martin Management Group wins their lawsuit, would they be likely to keep the site as car dealerships?

I wish we knew details about the current lease, when it ends, etc. This may be more about seeking $$$ reimbursement for moving expenses and timeline, as you noted. Thanks for the insight

I think that is the nail on the head of the matter. Or the hammer on the nail.

It seems as if Hines now has the property rights to the Reed site according to the NBJ. https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2021/10/08/hines-reed-lawsuit-development.html

Jim Reed Automotive Inc.'s Midtown development site has been the subject of disputes for more than a year, facing lawsuits from competing potential buyers. New court filings suggest one of those prospective buyers, Hines Investment Management Holdings Limited Partnership, has dropped its lawsuit and could now have new legal rights to 1406-1408 Broadway, which is one slice of Reed's larger 11-acre site.

Whatever rights and claims that Martin Management had under its original right of first refusal agreement, this document suggests that those rights have been transferred to and are now held by Hines,” said David Anthony, a commercial litigation lawyer at Anthony Legal PLLC in Nashville, who reviewed the documents at the request of the Business Journal; he is not involved in either lawsuit.

What I think this means is that Hines will buy the Martin dealership out of the first right of refusal. Hines has dropped the lawsuit against the Reed family. The article says some lingering court issues could go on, but this thing is about over IMO.

What a great piece of news! The dealerships have no place in that corridor going forward; they're a visual and logistical blight to the development of the West End canyon. I can't wait to see how the areas develop around big projects like this, as locations like this will certainly become magnets for further density.

I am looking for some Street activation for that long dead space. I have been here for over 25 years and as far as I know it has been vacant for that entire time..

What do you think of the development prospects of the country delite property? Also any thoughts on smokeless tobacco/goodwill properties in next 5-10 years?

      Market Street Enterprises announces their newest structure in their Gulch development: Three Thirty Three office building.  It will be a 5 story brick and glass structure featuring 69,000 sq. ft. of office space on top of a first floor primarily made up of 11,000 sq. ft. of retail that will face both Pine and 11th Ave. South.   It will be located at the NW corner of Pine and 11th Ave. North in The Gulch. Construction slated to begin this fall, and a finish is slated for late 2019.

      Adjacent to the building on the north side will be Noble Park, featuring a wooden boardwalk, and a 12 foot high by 42 foot wide water wall.  There will also be a deck that can serve as a stage for performances.

      The architect is Earl Swensson, and Turner will be construction company.

      This development is large enough that it deserves it's own thread.  Lifestyle Communities will develop another great looking residential community in the Rutledge Hill area covering the better part of two blocks running along the north side of Ash Street between 2nd Ave. South and the west side of 3rd Ave. South.
      The first phase will be 11 stories tall at it's apex, but will have 3 and 7 story sections near the front entrance at 719 Third Ave. South.  There will also be two levels of parking in an underground garage. This phase covers .86 acres. Completion date is set for 

      The second phase is rumored to be 6 stories tall and will encompass about 430 apartments, and will cover about 1.44 acres between 3rd and 2nd Avenues South.  No renderings nor word yet on start date for the second stage.  

      My guess is that there will be some retail/restaurant space incorporated into at least a portion of the ground levels, as that is what Lifestyle Communities is doing with it's similar-sized development in Germantown.

      I really like the design on Phase I, and if the rest of the project reflects the same dynamic, I think this will be a very nice addition to that neighborhood. Classy stuff, just like the development they are putting together in G-Town.
