Arts-influenced mixed-use project North Lights, which will sit just across the Cumberland River from MetroCenter on West Trinity Lane in North Nashville, will now see the involvement of locally based Elmington Capital Group.

Aerial Development Group CEO Britnie Turner told the Post Tuesday that ECG will acquire a percentage of interest in the project. The team, which includes Catalyst Design Group (engineering and land planning), will go before the Metro Planning Commission on Thursday, March 16, to request final site plan approval for the project.

A preliminary specific plan for North Lights was undertaken in December 2017.

North Lights will offer 210 multifamily units, 90 townhomes, 16 single-family cottages, 11 single-family homes and up to 25,000 square feet of space featuring local retail and restaurant businesses.

No groundbreaking date has been announced.

Of note, murals and street art will be a key component of the development, which will span about 22 acres. The seven-parcel site offers addresses are 509, 511 and 513 W. Trinity Lane.

Aerial acquired some of the parcels in 2013 for $385,500 and others in 2016 for $249,500, according to Metro records.

Turner said North Lights would draw inspiration from Miami’s Wynwood Walls Art District. As such, Aerial will invite artists to be part of the architectural and space-making process.

“We had always intended to have a development partner and were willing to be patient to find the right one,” Turner said. “Elmington is highly respected. We feel North Nashville is the next frontier and remain very excited about this project.”

In 2017, for the preliminary specific plan effort, Aerial had enlisted Centric Architecture, Hawkins Partners (landscape architecture and land-planning) and the aforementioned Catalyst Design Group (engineering). All three are based in Nashville.
