NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 23, 2017 – Today, local and community officials joined together with Southeast Venture and their honored guests to officially break ground on The Flats @ Silo Bend, a mixed-use development within The Nations.

The Flats @ Silo Bend is the development’s flagship structure, a 193-unit apartment building. Also planned for the development’s 37.7-acre site are single-family homes, office space, retail buildings and other apartments.

“This is an exciting milestone for The Nations community,” said Mary Carolyn Roberts, councilwoman for District 20. “After many months of preparation, we are excited to officially break ground on this development. We know the mixed-use space will be beneficial both for our neighborhood and the surrounding areas.”

Silo Bend is located at the intersection of Centennial Boulevard and New York Avenue and touches the southern bank of the Cumberland River. The development is named for the 200-foot-tall abandoned concrete grain silo that sits on the property and its location across from a bend of the Cumberland River.

“We’re looking forward to seeing this area transformed into a vibrant, appealing place to live, dine and shop,” said Wood Caldwell, principal at Southeast Venture. “With a prime location in West Nashville, we’re hoping to attract both Nashville natives and newcomers to the development’s variety of spaces.”

Also unveiled at the groundbreaking were plans to paint a large-scale, site-specific mural on the property’s 200-foot-tall abandoned silo. Art Consultant Brian Greif announced Australian artist Guido van Helten was selected for the project. Van Helten plans to visit Nashville in May to meet with residents, learn about The Nations and develop the concept for the mural.

Video footage shot with drones by Brian Siskind was featured before the ceremony and gave attendees an aerial view of the property. When it is completed, Silo Bend will offer 3,500 square feet of ground floor retail space and surface-level parking.

HealthSpring Groundbreaking

Trumpet fanfare and sounds of excavation punctuated HealthSpring’s MetroCenter groundbreaking Monday, Nov. 1, which celebrated the construction of HealthSpring’s new office building that will be developed and owned by Southeast Venture and its co-investment partners.

The widely attended event featured comments from Mayor Karl Dean, who highlighted the roughly 300 jobs the construction will bring to Nashville.

The 98,352-square-foot building will house HealthSpring employees from two of the three buildings the company currently occupies. When construction is complete, just 53 acres of undeveloped land will remain in MetroCenter, which is less than 10 percent of the business park’s total usable land.

The event’s media coverage speaks for itself. Check out the video from Channel 5, or read the great story in this week’s edition of Nashville Today (Search Headlines: HealthSpring breaks ground on new MetroCenter complex)

The groundbreaking was also mentioned in Chamber Chief Economic Development Officer Janet Miller’s blog, the Nashville Post’s business blog and on the Business Journal’s Web site.
