Modera Gulch

Atlanta-based development company Mill Creek Residential has landed another major permit for its Modera Gulch, under construction and expected to be completed in early 2023.

The 15-story tower will rise at 810 Division St. adjacent to the back of the Party Fowl structure. Mill Creek's permit is valued at about $52.1 million and follows the issuing of a $17.1 million permit about which the Post reported in April. MCRT Tennessee Construction is the general contractor.

Modera Gulch (pictured) will offer 378 residential units, 18,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial/retail space and 592 parking spaces. The local office of Raleigh-based engineering firm Kimley-Horn and Atlanta-based land-planning and architecture company Cooper Carry are participating.

Mill Creek in late December paid $19 million for the roughly 1.4-acre property.


Trevecca underway with construction of STEM building

Trevecca Nazarene University is underway with construction of an academic building to house its School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The future health sciences building will house the school’s physician assistant program and be the centerstone for collaboration among related disciplines such as biology and exercise science, according to a press release. Its address is 81 Lester Ave.

Designed by ESa (Earl Swensson Associates), the four-story, 33,000-square-foot building will house classrooms, faculty offices and laboratory space and connect to the north segment (currently a surface parking lot) of the Greathouse Science Building. Construction is expected to be completed by late spring 2022.

A recently issued permit, valued at $5.8 million, notes Nashville-based R.C. Mathews Contractor is the general contractor.

Demo at East Trinity Lane site could signal looming start of project

An Atlanta-based developer bolstering its local presence seemingly is moving forward on a mixed-use project in East Nashville.

The development will sit on a two-parcel site at 900 and 914 E. Trinity Lane next to the Metro Police Department East Precinct and potentially offer residential, retail, restaurant and creative maker/office space.

Wood Partners will undertake the project but needs to acquire the property, which covers about 5.9 acres and sits adjacent to Ellington Parkway.

Atlanta-based Brock Hudgins Architects is designing the buildings for the project, a name and detailed renderings for which have not yet been released. A 2024 completion is eyed with the effort seemingly to incorporate at least portions of some existing structures on the site.

The project will sit within Metro Councilmember Sean Parker’s District 5.

The permit, valued at $30,000, will allow for the razing of a commercial building on the site. Mid-South Wrecking Co. is handling the demo work.

Work continues on the Saint Thomas Midtown campus

Ascension Saint Thomas health system has landed an additional permit related to its efforts to add buildings at its Midtown campus.

The improvements — more on the hospital’s overall scope here — will fill out the 101-year-old hospital’s core footprint between Church and Patterson streets and 20th and 21st avenues. Some work — upgrades to women’s services and a joint venture focused on cancer care — has been underway and will be joined by a new rehabilitation hospital building at the corner of 21st and Patterson. That project — the permit for which is valued at about $15.5 million — is being undertaken in conjunction with Kindred Healthcare.

A previous permit, about which the Post reported in December, was valued at about $1.16 million.

Turner Construction is handling the job. The future four-story rehab building will have an address of 310 21st Ave. N.

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.
