After helping the previous owner realize the potential for its 16-acre site in a prime location on the western edge of downtown Nashville, we were retained by real estate investors Southwest Value Partners to develop an inspiring new neighborhood. The result is a high-quality, urban community that celebrates Nashville’s roots while introducing an eclectic mix of spaces that continues to advance the world-class city.

Celebrating Nashville’s Roots with People-Centric Design

As its name suggests, the Nashville Yards site was once a railyard; the place that people and goods entered Nashville. With the new development, Nashville Yards once again becomes the gateway to the city through the creative combination of:

  • Prominent additions to the city’s skyline (9 parcels in total)
  • A layered, walkable environment, including a new stacked street (Upper 10th Avenue North)

More than 4 acres of open green space that will connect to downtown’s greenway network, weaving this underutilized land back into the city fabric.

An Experience Unlike Any Other

Integrated design features such as pedestrian plazas and common branding elements that influence the way people will engage with streets, sidewalks and lighting will creative a holistic feeling within Nashville Yards. Parking will be conveniently located underground and out of site, while designated on-street ride-sharing drop-off and pick-up areas will be provided.
