Saks in Nashville?

Recommended Posts


Welcome to forum brownhound. I have seen you lurking for a while. Glad to see the post.

As far as your question goes, I have no idea, but I will bet you will find out. There will always be someone who can get the info.

Well, that's at least two grapevine rumors for Green Hills. I heard Bloomingdales was looking at the Hechts for the Green Hills store, and I know the management has one more major anchor up his sleeve. Saks would be a good one, even though my heart (and wallet) would still be at Marshall's (lol). This could be some of the interesting news we get in 2006, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Saks and Bloomies both in Green Hills? Well that would just about boggle my mind. If they could land both of them, Green Hill would immediately become a true destination shopping area. Other upscale stores would certainly follow.

A friend of mine up there told me a while ago that the expansion was planned with an eventual hotel on top in mind. This was a few years ago though. Did the area get a UDO? If so, would it allow an eight story structure?

There are two or three structures around the mall that are multiple (6 or more) stories. I see no problem at the city level getting a high rise, or mid rise, hotel. The place where a problem would be is the residents perhaps. But even those folks wouldn't raise too much of a stink I would think. I can clearly see one tower in particular that is around 10 floors just a little north and west of the mall I believe. It is an old person high rise I believe.

Could that rumor you heard be a part of the WES???

It wasn't WES. Seems like the hotel was announced by the owners of the mall when they first announced the multi-phase expansion several years ago (In a later phase). I heard it was to go right on top of the mall. However, I got the details second-hand, and I don't think an operator had been identified.

That retirement tower has been there for a while. I was just curious if a recently passed UDO applies to the mall and whether or not there are new height restrictions.

Ohhhh, I see now. That is a good question that I am not able to answer. Perhaps Dave or someone can help out on this one.

But. It seems like I read where the Hillsboro Road corridor was considered a commercial artery, by the city, that can have structures that would be considered mid-rise by most. I may be wrong on that though. Take it with a grain of salt.

It has been rumored that the Mall at Green Hills would soon be announcing a new anchor. SAKS would be my choice for a new anchor in Green Hills. If Federated would just get off their Macy's kick and see that a Bloomingdales makes better business sense at Green Hills you'd then see a major shopping area for the region - one that could reach as far as Birmingham, Louisville, Memphis and Knoxville.
