ULI Nashville honors Astoria

Last week, the Nashville Urban Land Institute honored six Middle Tennessee developments with its Excellence in Development Awards.

We were thrilled to learn that the Astoria, our Green Hills’ Bedford Avenue mixed-use development project with Ewing Properties was one of the developments recognized.

Astoria has a timeless, classic feel to it, with top-quality materials and amenities. Our partners in the project also included T.W. Frierson, Barge Cauthen Associates, Enfinity Engineering and EMC Structural Engineers PC.

The ULI judges said, “This project fits seamlessly into the environmentally sensitive, new urbanist, mixed-use district that the property owners, developers, public officials and neighbors worked so hard to establish.”

Other developments recognized were the Franklin Theatre, McCabe Park Community Center, Nance Place, Room in the Inn and Ruby.

The Nashville ULI chapter recently honored 1700 Midtown with an “Excellence in Development” award.

The State Street and 17th Avenue apartment building was developed by Bristol Development Group. We designed the architecture for the 170-unit, two four-story buildings. Project partners also included Hodgson & Douglas, Doster Construction Company, Barge Cauthen & Associates Inc., Smith Seckman Reid Inc., Sterling Engineering and Anderson Design Studio.

The ULI panel of judges described the 1700 Midtown project as setting “the design trend of future reinvestment in the area.”

Other honored projects were 12th and Paris, Franklin Police headquarters, Hotel Indigo, Piedmont Natural Gas operations center, the Sawtooth Building, Terrazzo and Westhaven.

ULI judged projects based on their design, land use, contribution to and reflection of the neighborhood, their use of a public/private partnership, environmental sensitivity and financial viability.

Judges for the awards were Richard Rosan, president of Urban Land Institute; William Gilchrist, director of place-based planning for the City of New Orleans; and Richard Ward, vice president of Zimmer Real Estate Services.
