Charlotte Ave's makeover continues....
clear

Long-awaited Charlotte Ave. project set to begin

 

A long-awaited redevelopment project that would transform one of the most recognizable buildings along Nashville’s booming Charlotte Avenue corridor is set to begin in two weeks.

Nashville Post reports that a full-scale overhaul of the interior of the L&L Restaurant Equipment property will begin in early February. The work will turn the sprawling 55,000-square-foot building into a huge food court and marketplace. The project is also set to include some office space. Owner Tamay Ozari has previously compared the project to New York City’s Chelsea Market.

The project was revealed a year ago, when it was called the Factory of Nashville. The Post reports that the project is now known as Factory Marketplace.

Huge water park coming to Opryland
clear

Ryman plots huge water park at Opryland

 

Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc. is moving ahead with plans for an expansive indoor and outdoor water park that would connect to its Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville.

As designed, a three-story building would include "multiple water-based attractions" including an array of slides and an outdoor wave pool with beaches. Several food-and-beverage outlets are planned as part of the complex, which would consume a large parking lot at the north end of the resort.

This rendering, contained in a construction bid document obtained by the Nashville Business Journal, depicts what a proposed indoor/outdoor water park connected to Gaylord Opryland Resort could look like.

That information comes from newly issued bid documents obtained by the Nashville Business Journal, which disclose that Ryman Hospitality (NYSE: RHP) has selected Nashville contractor D.F. Chase Inc. to lead construction of the proposed project. Bids from subcontractors are due Feb. 9, according to the documents.

The following is an excerpt from the bid documents that describes plans in more detail:

Metro records show that on behalf of Ryman Hospitality, Nashville engineering company Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon has applied for a stormwater grading permit. The permit, which is pending, describes the scope of work as an "indoor and outdoor water park." Metro records indicate that an on-site inspection is scheduled for Feb. 27.

Music City ranked the hottest real estate market in the country for 2017. PHOTO: MGN

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--It's no surprise Nashville is a booming city in terms of population growth. That growth has translated into Music City being ranked the hottest real estate market in the country for 2017.

The real estate and rental marketplace company Zillow predicts Nashville will be the hottest market thanks to being a major center for healthcare employment and the draw for those in the music industry. Markets were selected by examining the fastest-rising home values, unemployment rates, and strong income growth.

Homes in the Metro Nashville area are expected to appreciate by 4.3% this year, while income growth is expected to rise by 1.1% and the unemployment rate to sit at 4 percent.

Nashville isn't the only Tennessee city to make the list. Knoxville came in at number seven with a forecasted home appreciation of 4.4% with an income growth of 1.1 percent. The unemployment rate forecast was higher than Nashville, coming in at 4.7 percent.

Williamson county is one of the top 5 markets for new construction in the country.

Williamson builders hustled to keep pace with buyers in 2016

, For The Tennessean8:04 a.m. CT Jan. 2, 2017

The sounds of hammers and saws could be heard throughout Williamson County the past year as home builders, trying to keep pace with the growing population, sought approval to build more than 2,400 new single-family houses.

"Williamson County is one of the top five growth counties in the United States," said David McGowan, president of Regent Homes.

That growth is driven by families relocating in order to send their children to Williamson County's highly rated schools and professionals attracted by corporate office jobs in Cool Springs, he said.

One recent example is the decision by CKE, the parent company of the Carl's Jr. and Hardee's restaurant chains, to move its operations from California and St. Louis to Cool Springs, where it will employ more than 120 people in a new headquarters operation.

Many employers are moving to Williamson County for the same reasons, said McGowan.

"They are moving here for (lower) taxes and the quality of life," he said.

By late December, builders had received approval for construction of 2,435 new homes in Williamson County's cities and unincorporated areas. That number is likely to increase as final figures are tabulated.

Franklin, for example, issued building permits for 678 homes through the end of November. That number could grow when December is added to it.

Spring Hill approved 652 building permits through November. That was more than in all of 2015, when the city issued 576 permits.

There were 259 home building permits issued in Nolensville, 185 in Thompson's Station and 77 in Fairview. Brentwood approved 163 housing starts. In the unincorporated areas of the county, 421 homes were approved for construction.

Those unincorporated areas include College Grove, where The Grove and Hideaway at Arrington luxury golf communities are located and where The Jones Co. is building in the Falls Grove community. Those areas also include Arrington, where the Kings' Chapel gated community is located.

"We've had a really big year," said Spring Hill spokesman Jamie Page. "It exceeded last year, and last year was a really big year," with 576 permits.

John Maher Builders, one of the most active home builders in the area, is building homes in a new phase of the Wade's Grove subdivision and in Spring Hill Place.

"Spring Hill is desirable for many reasons, including affordability, safe communities, convenient shopping and proximity to Nashville and other locations such as Franklin and Columbia," said John Maher, founder of the company.

Buyers include first-time homeowners, retirees, people relocating from out of state and others, said Maher.

Fairview is attracting increasing attention from home builders. The city approved construction of 77 homes through late December. That was more than in all of 2015, when 60 permits were approved. In 2014, builders sought permission for 39 homes.

"It's been a good year," said Sharon Hall, the city's codes clerk. "We had 20 in September, and we've never had that number."

Large builders in the city include The Jones Co., which developed the Heartland Reserve subdivision, and Ole South, which is active in the Deer Valley Downs and Western Woods neighborhoods.

In Franklin, Celebration Homes has been especially active in the Berry Farms master planned community, located along the I-65 growth corridor.

"Berry Farms is becoming the new hidden gem of Franklin," said Celebration Homes President Randall Smith.

Values are rising along with the number of homes built, he said.

"Where we had home sales when we started in 2013 in the upper $300,000s we now have luxury residences in the $500,000s to over $800,000. Several larger estate homes are planned soon that will be near $1 million," offered by Celebration Homes and Ford Custom Homes, said Smith.

In Berry Farms, Regent Homes offers townhomes and Town Center condos starting around $250,000. In Westhaven, the company is building condos with prices starting at $352,720.

Regent is building homes in Nolensville in the Brittain Downs, Burkitt Village, Eulas Glen and Sherwood Green Estates subdivisions; in Franklin in the Lockwood Glen neighborhood and in Spring Hill in the Shirebrook neighborhood.

Demand was consistently strong throughout 2016.

"Normally you expect December to be slow, but we'll have 35 sales," said McGowan. "It's extremely strong."
