The development team with Nashville Yards has released multiple new renderings of parts of the project, including two that show how the two buildings to house the Amazon Operations Center for Excellence will interact at 10th Avenue North.

San Diego-based Southwest Value Partners is overseeing the development of the 17 acres of Nashville Yards. In addition, Las Vegas-based MGM Resorts International is partnering with Los Angeles-based Anschutz Entertainment Group related to the entertainment district component of Nashville Yards.

Southwest Value has enlisted the following local companies to contribute to the development: Colliers International | Nashville is handling marketing and leasing of the future office and retail space; Gresham Smith and Partners is the lead architect for the project; Hawkins Partners manages urban and landscape planning; Ragan Smith is civil engineer; Alvine Engineering is mechanical engineering; Bone Law is offering legal services; and Stones River Group is providing public affairs and media relations. In a joint venture, Bell & Associates Construction and Clark Construction Group are leading the construction.

The two Amazon buildings are pictured (with 1010 Church St. as an address though the buildings will face 10th), with the one under construction closest to the Church Street viaduct almost topped.

Foundation work underway at Novel Edgehill

A permit has been issued related to Novel Edgehill, a mixed-use building to offer apartments and a café and under construction just south of the inner-interstate loop near The Gulch.

Valued at about $1.05 million, the permit will allow for foundation work at the Edgehill site, with the 2.7-acre property located at 801 12th Ave. S. The first Novel residences are expected to be available late next year.

The permit lists Doster Construction as the general contractor. Other project partners include Hawkins and Partners as the land planner and landscape architect, KTGY as the architect, Manual Zeitlin Architects as the local design architect, Kimley Horn as the civil engineer and CID as the interior design firm.

Crescent Communities and Pearl Street Partners of Brentwood are co-developing the site, which was last home to mental illness and substance abuse recovery services business Park Center.

The Novel (stylized as “NOVEL”) building will feature four- and five-story components. It will comprise 270 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment units and 6,000 square feet of retail space, including a café from Land of a Thousand Hill Coffee and dedicated co-working space.
