If you haven’t heard, we are collaborating with Grace Development on a new 300-unit apartment complex at 2305-2311 Elliston Place. Grace Development submitted its request for SP zoning to the Metro Planning Commission on Thursday, January 15.
We look forward to designing this new building, which will be comprised of a six-story façade of masonry stone, brick and glass, which is lined with apartments facing Elliston Place. At the street level 13,000 square feet of retail space will serve to further activate the pedestrian friendly neighborhood. Set back from the Elliston Place façade will be a high rise portion which is positioned over a concealed multi-story parking structure. The glass and stone tower will contain the majority of the apartment units.
“We are excited to offer this new and exciting mixed-use and amenity-driven apartment product to our long-standing tradition of owning and managing urban apartments throughout Midtown Nashville,” said Jim Stadler of Grace Development. “In working with our architect, our objective has been to create a mixed-use project that complements the neighborhood. We’ve had positive meetings with Council Lady Edith Taylor Langster and are excited to be working with her on this significant project for the West End-Elliston Place corridor.”
Paul Plummer, Design Principal here at Southeast Venture said, “We’ve had excellent meetings with the Planning Staff to achieve a design solution which is consistent with the long range plan for the area and which nurtures the pedestrian oriented mixed-use vibe of Elliston Place.”
“We are honored to work with Grace Development on this exciting new project in Nashville’s thriving midtown,” Plummer said. “The characteristics of this location called for a creative approach and we are pleased with the result. I believe it will become an important landmark on Elliston Place, which has always been one of my favorite parts of Nashville.”
Assisting Southeast Venture in the design of the new Elliston Place apartments are civil engineering firm Barge-Cauthen & Associates and landscape architects Hodgson & Douglas.
