Ariza Bellevue

An image has been finalized related to a seven-building apartment complex planned for a West Davidson County site overlooking the Harpeth River.

To be called Ariza Bellevue (and previously with a working name of The Bend at Bellevue Park) the development will offer a collective 417 residential units and sit on a 44-acre site at 1084 Morton Mill Road, according to a document submitted to the Metro Planning Department.

Cypressbrook Company, which is based in The Woodlands, Texas, will serve as developer. That Houston-area entity, officials with which could not be reached for comment, will need to acquire the property.

Cypressbrook seemingly has not previously undertaken a development in Nashville. The company’s website lists seven project, with all but one (in Florida) located in Texas.

Nashville-based Ragan-Smith Associates will handle land-planning work, with Wallace Wilson Architects of Houston overseeing design.

Pennsylvania developer lands $42.5M loan for Germantown project

A $42.5 million construction loan has been secured related to a mixed-use building eyed for Germantown, according to a Davidson County Register of Deeds document.

Philadelphia-based Greenpointe Construction plans the project for an unimproved 0.87-acre multi-parcel site, the main address for which is 1231 Second Ave. N. Greenpointe last December paid $5.5 million for the property — more than 14 times the mark for which it last sold eight years ago and seemingly a per-foot dollar amount record for raw land in the north side district.

A document submitted to Metro Planning earlier this year noted the project will be called Rome Mixed-Use (though it seemingly was to have been known as 2nd & Monroe), with the seven-story building planned for 210 residences (51 studio, 110 one-bedroom and 49 two-bedroom units). It will rise approximately 75 feet and offer 252 parking spaces within a structured garage.

Greenpointe in May landed a specific plan rezoning.

Nashville-based Fulmer Lucas Engineering is handling land-planning and engineering duties for Greenpointe. According to the documents, Cherry Land Surveying and Comma Designworks (architecture) are also involved. Both companies are locally based.

Somewhat relatedly, Atlanta-based New City is targeting the same intersection — on the block catty-corner from the Greenpointe site — for a three-building mixed-use project (read here). New City also is undertaking an overhaul of the former Neuhoff site on Germantown's eastern fringe.

My position with Nashville Post has evolved since 2000 when I began work with the now-defunct The City Paper. TCP became a Post sister pub in 2008 (when I began some Post work) and folded in 2013. I have worked mainly with the Post since late 2011.
