Woodfield Development is eyeing another multifamily project in the Nashville core, this time in Sobro.   2nd Avenue Gateway is a new mixed-use development located at the corner of Second Avenue and Ash Street across from the Metro Government campus.  The address is 805 2nd Avenue South.

The project will replace two single story multi-tenant buildings which last sold for $2.25 Million in 2003.  Like the existing buildings, the new mixed-use structure will take up the entire block. The property also adds to the growing list of new and ongoing development on adjacent properties. The map below shows a sample of adjacent development projects for context.

A request for modification has been submitted for the property, currently zoned DTC.  Once approved the request will permit a mixed-use development on the 2 acre site.  The request was submitted by Woodfield Development on behalf of the property owner.  Here’s the quick rundown:
