As more and more money pours into Nashville, we are seeing a plethora of live-work-play developments popping up all over the city. However, there are a few projects that really stick out. Here are three massive mixed-use developments that will change Nashville’s landscape over the next few years.
1) River North
This development will be located just across the river from Germantown on the north bank of the Cumberland River. The 125-acre project will feature a pedestrian bridge to Germantown, a marina, 50 acres of green space. Phase 1 will stretch across 40 acres and will be called “The Landings at River North”. This stage of the development will provide office space, multi-family residential space, retail. The marina will supply a water taxi service and a recreational area. The greenway will reach 1,500 lineal feet on the frontage of the Cumberland River.
2) Nashville Yards
This 17-acre mixed-use development will extend from Broadway to Church Street. This establishment will feature skyscrapers, vibrant signs to set them apart from other buildings, a residential tower with access to a boardwalk to the park linking Broadway and Church Street, a private pool deck, and an upper 10th Avenue will be added for pedestrians to stroll along the row of shops and restaurants on the lower level. The first tenant will be the Grand Hyatt and they plan to open Fall 2020. In addition, Anschutz Entertainment Group and MGM Resorts International have released plans to build a 4,000-seat music venue, club, bowling alley, movie theater, hotel and shops to the massive project.
3) Fifth + Broadway
This six-acre mixed-use development will be located where the Nashville Convention Center once sat at the corner of Fifth Avenue, across from the Ryman Auditorium. This project will feature 386 residential units at The Place at Fifth + Broadway and more than 2,000 parking spaces to be completed by spring 2020. 200,000 sqft of walkable shops and rooftop restaurants, 372,000 sqft Class-A Office space to be completed by summer 2020, and 56,000 sqft National Museum of African American Music to be added at a later date.
What this means for Nashville
Nashville’s explosive growth shows no signs of slowing, and much of that is thanks to developments like the ones listed above. Big investors have observed the success of mixed-use developments in other cities and have perfected their application to the Nashville market. Newcomers and Nashville natives alike are flocking to these developments in search of shorter commutes, proximity to shopping, and accessibility to restaurants and groceries. We are seeing new communities born and existing communities connect in ways that they haven’t before. Judging by Nashville’s booming market, these changes will only continue to shape the landscape in ways that draw people in.
