Work will be underway in June on a 79-unit residential project in Inglewood, with a mid-2022 finish eyed.
Unfolding at 3810 Gallatin Pike, the approximately $10 million project is being called Studio 79, with Chattanooga-based Urban Growth Capital serving as developer. The company in December 2019 paid a little more than $2 million for the property, home to a modernist church building that will be razed.
Manuel Zeitlin Architects and Bacar Constructors are handling design and construction, respectively. Both are locally based. Lebanon-based Wilson Bank & Trust is providing the loan.
MZA has given the four-story building a contemporary design.
"As a Nashvillian, I've witnessed the changes that have taken place over the past decade in Inglewood and East Nashville, and it’s quite impressive,” Urban Growth Capital CEO Brandon Liggett told the Post. “We're thrilled to see the continued growth of the community and are excited to play a small role in making the Gallatin Pike corridor a more vibrant, walkable place to live, work and play."
Urban Growth Capital also operates an office in Nashville and includes COO Tyler Divin. This is the company’s first major local development. UGC has undertaken multiple office projects in Chattanooga.
