Neuhoff site update continues

Neuhoff site

The effort to dramatically reinvent the Neuhoff complex in Germantown is taking another step forward.

Atlanta-based New City Properties, which owns the site and will serve as developer, has applied for a major utilities permit related to the effort. The permit references 550 residential units, 825,000 square feet of non-residential space and 50 hotel rooms. Previous local media reports have listed those elements with varying numbers.

New York City-based S9 Architecture (the design architect) and Nashville-based Smith Gee Studio are designing the future buildings for the 9.2-acre site. In addition, the local office of Raleigh-based Kimley-Horn and Associates and Mid-TN Erosion and Sediment Control are participating in the effort, the permit application document notes.

Jim Irwin, president of New City LLC, declined to comment regarding a start date for full-scale on-site work. Irwin — who was a key figure in the reinvention of what became Ponce City Market when he worked at Atlanta-based Jamestown —  told the Post in June he envisions three to four new buildings and the adaptive reuse of the prominent curved building on the site, and “as much of the historic fabric on the site as possible.”

Early-phase work slated for Church Street tower

Preliminary site work will soon be underway related to a mixed-use tower planned for the downtown intersection of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Church Street.

To be called 801 Church, the 38-story tower from Nashville-based Giarratana LLC will offer 350 residential units and two retail spaces (one each at Rosa Parks and Church and at Ninth and Church, respectively), according to a document. The address is 801 Church St., with Nashville Yards rising on a nearby site.

A stormwater grading permit is being sought, according to a Metro document.

Led by founder Tony Giarratana, the company has the three-parcel property under contract with Chicago-based Speedwagon Properties and plans to close on the acquisition no later than next spring. Speedwagon paid $13.75 million for the unimproved site, which covers 0.43 acres, in June 2018. That deal also included 814 Church, the site home to the art deco Mastrapasqua Building.

Nashville-based Barge Design Solutions (civil engineering and land planning) is listed on the permit.

Work could begin soon on apartments near Marathon Village

Efforts to build an apartment complex at a North Nashville site near Marathon Village have taken a step forward with the issuance of a permit.

Valued at $11.90 million, the permit will allow for construction of a five-story, 321-space parking structure at what will be called Lofts at Marathon. Nashville-based Hardaway Construction Corp. is the general contractor.

This follows Chicago-based Leftbank Holdings earlier this year having paid about $4.69 million for the site on which the proposed apartment building will rise and for which various details have not been fully disclosed. The address is 806 16th Ave. N., with the property once home to Atomic Recycling. In addition, Leftbank paid about $2.83 million for land at 804 14th Ave. N., according to Davidson County Register of Deeds records.

The 16th Avenue property sits just north of the building home to Marathon Music Works and Nelson’s Green Brier Distillery. The general area is sometimes called Watkins Park and/or FANG (Fisk Area Neighborhood Group).

Leftbank has hired Smith Gee Studio for architectural work, with Catalyst Design handling land-planning and engineering duties. Both companies are Nashville-based. A detailed image of the future building has not been submitted to Metro.
