Joe Owen, managing member of Rutledge Development LLC, introduced Chance Ragains, CEO of Patoka Capital. Patoka Capital, Owen and Don Meeks, CEO of Meeks +Partners, are principal investors in the CityLights development. Meeks + Partners is the Houston-based architectural firm that designed the luxury residences and the complete City Lights development.

Joe Owen of Rutledge Development LLC welcomes guests, recognizes contractors, and provides a project update.

Owen also announced the developer has received a loan commitment from Wilson Bank and Trust and introduced bank representatives in attendance.

“With equity and debt financing being committed and approximately 40 percent of the units pre-sold, we are ready to break ground and anticipate completing the construction of CityLights and its luxurious residences, restaurant and amenities during the next 18-22 months,” Owen said.

Located just south of Ascend Amphitheatre at the corner of Lea Avenue and Rutledge Street, the condo prices start in the $500s and units will average 1,800 square feet up to 2,600 square feet for two- and three-bedroom condos. Four penthouses with four bedrooms will be between 3,200 and 3,400 square feet. Each unit includes two parking spaces in a secured underground garage and a storage unit. In addition to a rooftop terrace and sky lounge, amenities will include a saltwater swimming pool, terrace and a green roof, 24-hour concierge, a rooftop dog park, a fitness facility with private yoga studio, a conference room, a club room and a guest suite. The building will be anchored by a restaurant with a 1,500-square-foot deck overlooking downtown and the Cumberland River.

Mayor Megan Barry celebrates Nashville’s urban core and its residential growth.

Mayor Megan Barry gave brief remarks at the ceremony and stressed the importance of new residences like CityLights in downtown Nashville. “Having a strong vibrant urban core is critical for Nashville,” said Barry. District 19 Council Member, Freddie O’Connell reiterated the Mayor’s sentiment. “Projects like this are going to help the city re-imagine urban living,” O’Connell said.

“CityLights is in an incredible location, with easy access to event venues, Riverfront Park and our greenway system, which is becoming more fully developed each day,” Mark Deutschmann, CEO of Village Real Estate, which is marketing CityLights, said. “Location, distinctiveness, amenities and the opportunity for an active and healthy lifestyle are attracting both in-town and new-to-town buyers to this urban condo.”

The CityLights sales center will be relocated from the construction site to a new location to be announced in the coming days. It will be open on weekends and by appointment.

The RG Anderson Company is the general contractor for the boutique condominium development. Other Nashville projects in the company’s portfolio include Ryman Lofts on nearby Rolling Mill Hill, The Dallas on Elliston Place and Uptown Flats.

Nashville Business Journal: Crucial loan kickstarts downtown’s newest luxury condo development

Read More

Source: Nashville Business Journal

After two-and-a-half years of work, Don Meeks is starting construction on a luxury condo building in downtown Nashville — buoyed by a new bank loan and the sizzling growth in the city’s urban core.

Condo buyers have reserved 40 percent of the 71 units in the forthcoming CityLights building at 20 Rutledge St., said Meeks, who is a Houston architect and a key investor in the development. That activity was sufficient to secure a loan to fund construction of the roughly $73 million building from Wilson Bank & Trust, Meeks said.

Though Meeks had hoped to start construction months earlier, there’s reason to believe his timing won’t be hurt by that delay. About 9,600 people are expected to live downtown by year’s end, according to projections from the Nashville Downtown Partnership. That’s a 40 percent jump in four years. The partnership expects another 2,800 to move downtown in 2017. Such growth in such a short time has soaked up downtown apartments and condos. The Twelve | Twelve high-rise in the Gulch sold out of its 286 units in April, and currently, downtown has a three-month supply of condos available for purchase — half the amount usually considered healthy or balanced, the partnership says.

The partnership also reports that people living downtown are increasingly affluent. Buyers are able to hold a condo in the CityLights building with a deposit in escrow equal to 10 percent of the unit’s sale price. One of the building’s four penthouses is reserved; each of those units, at about 3,400 square feet, is priced between $2.5 million to $3 million.

Most of the units reserved so far will sell for between $500 to $600 per square foot, at an average size of 1,900 square feet, Meeks tells me. Once half of the units are reserved, Meeks said he anticipates raising prices by about 5 percent.

“It shows that Nashville is a major player among major cities in the United States. Sales prices per-foot are up there with Dallas and Houston and Denver and Charlotte and Atlanta, so again, Nashville is a fantastic market,” Meeks said. “Nashville is as strong and sophisticated as any market, and is demanding a higher level of quality.”

Along with Meeks, core investors in the development include Louisville private-equity firm Patoka Capital, as well as Joe Owen, the CEO of Brentwood-based Guardian Healthcare. Nashville’s Village Real Estate Services is handling the sales effort.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled Dec. 9 for the seven-story building, which will include a restaurant, pool, two rooftop terraces, a gym and other amenities, Meeks said. A previous letter of intent for the restaurant space has expired, and Meeks said he is scouting new food concepts for the space. The eventual restaurant will provide room service for condo owners and also cater events they hold at the building, he said.

RG Anderson will handle construction, which should finish in summer or fall of 2018, Meeks said. The building is located behind the popular Crema coffee shop at the southern edge of downtown, and near noted restaurant Husk.

Meeks had hoped to start construction about three months ago, but he said it was tough to lock down a contractor who wasn’t covered up with work, and get Metro to process the necessary permits. Both are reflections of how the city is inundated with construction in its “It City” boom ( as seen on our Crane Watch map).

“The city of Nashville is just swamped. It’s taken us over six months to get a permit — it’s just taken that long for them to get to it. I’m sure you’ll hear that from a lot of other developers,” Meeks said.

Condo Living in Nashville’s Urban Core Increasing in Popularity

Read More

Across the country, baby boomers and millennials alike are choosing a simpler lifestyle by downsizing from multi-family homes to luxury condo buildings. In fact, according to the Greater Nashville Association of REALTORS, condo closings in Nashville are up by 14 percent this year compared to just one year ago.

In addition, residents are choosing to live closer to Nashville’s urban core. More than 1,000 new residents have moved to downtown Nashville in 2016 alone and the downtown population is projected to grow by 29 percent by the end of 2017.

Hidden Innuendo

Walkability and the overall urban experience rank among the most common reasons individuals are choosing to move downtown, according to the most recent Downtown Nashville Residential Report. According to Mark Deutschmann, Village Real Estate Founder and CEO, interest in downtown luxury condos has increased in recent years. “There are many benefits to a boutique condo building, including convenience and little maintenance,” said Deutschmann.”Buyers are enthusiastic about being close to all of the action downtown. We are also seeing buyers — both in-town and new-to-town — who want to simplify by trading a big house outside of town for a luxury boutique building in the heart of town with upscale amenities.”

The sun is setting behind the “Batman” building and the orange afterglow reflects perfectly on the Cumberland River below. A feasting table, elegantly set for 400 guests, runs down the center of the expansive and modern Seigenthaler bridge. Aerialists gracefully hang from the bridge’s beams as guests are invited to take their seats for a three-course meal overlooking the Nashville skyline. The stage has been set for one of Nashville’s most unique events, Dinner on the Bridge, an annual event that serves to raise money for Greenways for Nashville, a non-profit organization that supports Nashville’s greenways initiative.

Greenways for Nashville President, Mark Deutschmann, welcomed guests and talked about the importance of supporting Nashville’s trails and green spaces. In addition, Mayor Megan Barry addressed the group and shared a story about three important items that Mayor Karl Dean bequeathed to her that would become important to her term. One unusual item Dean left behind was a walking stick, as he told her she would be doing a lot of walking along Nashville’s beautiful trails during her term. In addition, Mayor Barry expressed her avid support for the Greenways and Greenways for Nashville.

Dinner commenced around 8:00 p.m. and guests were encouraged to mingle and savor miniature desserts at stations set up along the bridge. Guests conversed under the Seigenthaler Bridge’s warm glow and lingered as if they didn’t want the evening to end.

Dinner on the bridge is a once in a lifetime experience that is not to be missed. The date for next Year’s Dinner on the Bridge has not yet been set but the event traditionally takes place the last week in September. Continue to check the Greenways for Nashville website for updates.

Barry proposes land deal for Gulch-SoBro pedestrian bridge

Read More

Source: The Tennessean 

Mayor Megan Barry’s administration is moving forward on plans to build a long-discussed $18 million pedestrian bridge that would connect downtown Nashville’s hip Gulch and SoBro neighborhoods after striking a preliminary deal to acquire land needed for its construction.

After months of negotiations, Barry is proposing Metro’s sale of the long-underutilized, 3-acre Clement Landport on Demonbreun Street to the nearby private office center Cummins Station for $7.56 million.

In exchange, the city would then pay $2.66 million to Cummins Station’s property owner for necessary easements to build and construct the east base of the 700-foot-long pedestrian bridge, which is conceived as a way to connect two growing neighborhoods that are severed by CSX railroad tracks.

The mayor’s office filed legislation with the council late Friday outlining the transaction, setting up a Sept. 20 council vote on the proposal.

The towering, architecturally eye-popping Gulch-SoBro bridge — celebrated by some, but scorned by others as an unneeded and expensive undertaking — was one of former Mayor Karl Dean’s final big-ticket capital items. But construction never started, even though the Metro Council voted to approve the project’s financing and initial land acquisition two years ago. Finalizing right-of-way acquisition, particularly involving land owned by Cummins Station, has held up the bridge from being built.

bridge-rendering

With the preliminary agreement now in place, Barry — who voted for the bridge as a councilwoman and has vowed to carry on the project as mayor — said the project is one step closer to becoming a reality.

“Once completed, the Gulch-SoBro Pedestrian Bridge will better connect residents and visitors to these thriving neighborhoods in a way that promotes tourism and economic activity,” Barry said in a statement. “Not only does this benefit our transit network for pedestrians, but the sale of the Landport will result in an infusion of capital funds to (the Metro Transit Authority) that will help to improve transit for bus riders throughout Davidson County.”

The Nashville Business Journal first reported on the deal between the mayor’s office and Cummins Station.

Zach Liff, president of Z-Integrated Capital & Management, which manages Cummins Station, declined to comment on the proposed transaction, which could open up development opportunities for Cummins Station on the Clement Landport site at 1011 Demonbreun St.

The high-profile property is across railroad tracks from the recently opened MarketStreet Enterprises’ Gulch Crossing office building. Liff is in the process of creating a master plan to guide the future development of properties he’s recently acquired around Cummins Station.

The Metro Transit Authority currently owns and operates the landport, which opened in 1998 after then-U.S. Rep. Bob Clement secured federal funds for the $4.6 million project. It was once conceived as the hub of a bustling regional passenger system in Nashville that would incorporate bus service, van pools and bicyclists.

From the outset, though, the landport struggled to draw activity and was later slammed by critics as a waste of taxpayer dollars. Today, the landport is used as a paid parking lot, and an MTA building on the site is vacant and locked shut. The site was last used for transit purposes in 2012.

Under Barry’s proposal, Metro government would purchase the landport from MTA for $8.4 million before the city would then sell the landport to Cummins Station. That sum matches the appraised value of the land. The funds generated from the sale of the landport are to be used for unidentified transit-related capital expenditures.

The landport site, which is toward the northern end of Cummins Station, does not sit on the footprint where the pedestrian bridge is targeted.

“The landport has been underutilized by MTA over the years, so this deal will help us to put our resources to best use in serving the citizens of Davidson County,” MTA CEO Steve Bland said in a statement.

“While we still must receive final approval from the Federal Transit Administration, we believe that the sale of this property and infusion of funds into our infrastructure are in the best interests of all Nashvillians who use our service.”

In October 2014, the council approved $1 million in initial land acquisition costs for the bridge, but additional right-of-way acquisition of property on the south end of the Cummins Station site has still been needed.

If the council signs off on the agreement between Metro and Cummins Station, the Metro Public Works department would begin working to engage the community on final designs of the bridge.

Though the Gulch-SoBro bridge is envisioned as a means to increase walkability between two neighborhoods that have carried the brunt of downtown’s recent growth, preliminary conceptual designs have called for a bold architectural plan that could make the bridge a destination itself.

A soaring 200-foot tower, visible across downtown, is to anchor the bridge on the SoBro end, with 30 multi-strand stay cables connecting the bridge to the tower. The bridge, 30 feet wide, also is designed to be accessible for bicyclists and pedestrians via staircases, ramps and glass elevators. It is to also feature bands of raised park space along its entire surface.

The Gulch-SoBro bridge has been a subject of criticism among Nashvillians who have demanded that more city investments should occur in neighborhoods, not just downtown. But after initially delaying a vote on Dean’s pedestrian bridge proposal in early 2014, the council months later voted 30-7 to approve land acquisition.

Easing concerns of council members was a restructured financing plan that relies on property tax revenues generated by seven Gulch properties that is to pay off debt on the bridge by 2022.

Explore These Five Green Spaces In Nashville This Weekend

Read More

If you’ve ever spent time in other cities across the country, you come to appreciate Nashville’s rolling hills and sprawling green spaces.

Nashville’s Greenway System is made up of more than 80 miles of off-street multi-use greenway trails and various other types of trails within parks for walking, hiking, mountain biking and equestrian use.

With more than 20 multi-use, paved trails located throughout Nashville, you’ll never run out of green spaces to explore.

Here are five of Nashville’s most unique Greenways and Trails to check out this weekend:

1. Cumberland River Greenway: Downtown

Riverfront 23.5 miles, paved

Riverfront Park, along the Cumberland River River Greenway, has become one of Nashville’s most popular and most photographed trailways. Take in unobstructed panoramic views of downtown Nashville from the Seigenthaler Bridge and walk along the Cumberland River and watch the sunset reflect off the water.

2. White’s Creek Greenway at Fontanel

Trails-Entrance.08 miles paved and 2 miles primitive

This trail is the perfect spot for a reflective afternoon walk with man’s best friend. Mars Petcare helped sponsor this dog-friendly trail, installing sensory points throughout the trail.  Along the trail, pass behind the Fontanel Mansion, the former compound of famed country singer Barbara Mandrell.

3. Harpeth River Greenway: Warner Park to Morton Mill

Harpeth

6 miles paved

This scenic trail is accessible from two trailheads in Edwin Warner Park and follows the beautiful Harpeth and Little Harpeth Rivers. There is also an expansive picnic area. This greenway is ideal for runners and bikers, as foot traffic is more spread out along the trail.

4. Centennial Park

2.3-miles paved

This trail within Nashville’s most photographed urban park is perfect for an early-morning or afternoon walk. Make a few laps around the 132-acre park and be sure to take a selfie in front of The Parthenon, Nashville’s most iconic landmark. This trail is better suited for walking than jogging because of the foot traffic, tourists, dog walkers, etc.

5. Fort Negley Historic Park

fort negley0.5 miles paved loop

Fort Negley is one of Nashville’s best-kept secrets. Where else in Nashville can you visit a historical landmark while exploring the great outdoors? Fort Negley Historic Park is a short trail perched above Wedgewood-Houston. The park also has excellent downtown views.

Nashville’s Greenways continue to evolve and there are several plans for expansion in the near future (see Nashville plans next vision for parks,greenways ). We don’t know about you, but we’re proud to live in a city with such beautiful public green spaces. So, get out there and explore Nashville!

Demand grows for parkside homes in Nashville

Nashville is hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, but homebuyers in neighborhoods close to parks and greenways have discovered the city’s equivalent of beachfront property.

“Property around the park has been treated like oceanfront property in Nashville, where values have grown exponentially and retained themselves,” said Britnie Turner, founder and CEO of Aerial Development Group.

From urban neighborhoods and downtown to the suburbs, demand is growing for parkside homes.

Aerial recently sold several homes in East Nashville’s Shelby Hills neighborhood at prices between $700,000 and $800,000. The neighborhood is adjacent to Shelby Park.

“Several people commented, ‘why would we want to live in Green Hills and deal with that traffic when we could live in this beautiful park this close to downtown?’,” said Turner.

Development has wellness focus

Aerial is also developing East Greenway Park in East Nashville’s Rosebank neighborhood. The neighborhood, at the intersection of Eastland and Rosebank avenues, has direct access to the Shelby Bottoms Greenway and is designed as a wellness community where outdoor activities are encouraged.

East Greenway Park will have 62 homes on 10 acres when fully developed. Homes range from 1,250 to 2,400 square feet. Prices were initially set in the $225,000 to $375,000 and higher range.

“We just went to market on East Greenway Park last week and are already 60 percent sold out of the first phase. People are loving the park,” said Turner.

Seeking an outdoor lifestyle

Rebecca and Trevor Brown are looking forward to moving into their new home in East Greenway Park after it is completed early next year.

For the Browns, who operate CrossFit Gulch in Nashville, the location next to the Shelby Bottoms Greenway was a key factor in their decision to buy their home.

“I plan to run on the greenway. My husband bikes and runs. We’re excited to be near Cornelia Fort,” the 130-acre former airpark that was added to the greenway a few years ago, she said.

They understood that buying a new home inside the city, where the price of land is high, meant they would not have a large yard. Instead, the park will serve that purpose.

The Browns, who have one child and are planning for more, look forward to having an outdoor lifestyle in the park.

“All the space kids can play and not worry about cars and people,” said Rebecca Brown.

New residences near greenway

In the Rutledge Hill neighborhood on the south side of downtown, Village Real Estate Services is marketing condominiums in CityLights, a 71-residence building being developed close to the Cumberland River Greenway and the 11-acre park surrounding Ascend Amphitheater.

Prices in the seven-story building, which will be at 20 Rutledge St., range from the high $500,000s to $3.2 million. Residents are expected to move in by early 2018.

“CityLights is in an incredible location, with easy access to event venues, Riverfront Park and our greenway system, which is getting more fully developed every day,” said Mark Deutschmann, a founder of Village Real Estate Services.

“We now have a 26-mile contiguous Nashville greenway, from Percy Priest Dam to downtown across the Shelby Street Bridge to Metro Center and beyond. Living near parks and greenways encourages a healthy, active lifestyle, and more Nashvillians are seeking that lifestyle,” said Deutschmann. He is president of the board of directors for Greenways for Nashville.

On the west side of the city, Village is selling condos in Poston at the Park at 30th and Poston avenues. The 27-unit luxury building overlooks Centennial Park. Prices range from $599,200 to more than $2 million.

”The neighborhoods near Centennial Park have been discovered and are developing rapidly because of the convenient location. Poston at the Park is steps away from Centennial Park and a short walk to West End restaurants and services, the new master-planned park system and the recently announced 440 Greenway, which originates in Centennial Park,” said Deutschmann.

On Belwood Street, a short walk from Centennial Park, Regent Homes is building townhomes priced from the $400,000s to about $699,000. They sold before they were built. The company is also building three condominiums priced in the $600,000s.

Subdivision preserves green space

On the southeast side of the city, Regent is developing the Carothers Farms subdivision adjacent to Cane Ridge Park. More than half of the neighborhood’s 500-acre site will be preserved as green space, said Regent Homes President David McGowan.

Townhome prices start in the $180,000s. Single-family cottage homes with about 1,400 square feet are priced from $249,000. Larger homes start at $289,000.

Construction of the first homes began in July; 17 have already been purchased. McGowan said being next to a park increases demand.

“No two ways about it,” said McGowan. “People like being near a park.”
