Nashville-based developer Vintage South is gearing up for yet another transformative adaptive-reuse project in the Nations.  The final site plan has been submitted which provides preliminary insight as to how the development will unfold.  With more than 600 feet fronting 63rd Avenue North, the project will become an instant landmark which will anchor the border of the West Nashville neighborhood.  The project address is 1111 63rd Avenue North.

Vintage South is leading the way with adaptive reuse projects throughout Nashville.   These projects offer a unique level of character and higher purpose retail, office, and multifamily experiences. Here is a sample of ongoing adaptive-reuse projects by Vintage South in the Nations area.

Genesco Inc. is a Nashville based specialty retailer of branded footwear and accessories and is a wholesaler of branded and licensed footwear.  Popular brands include Journeys, Johnston & Murphy, and Levi’s to name a few. According to Metro Documents, the building was sold to Genesco in 2018 for $300,000 after being operated by Ingram Corp since 1928 and later Ingram Industries Inc. in 1978.  The developer acquired the property in January of this year for $20 Million.

A request for final site plan approval has been submitted for the two parcels which make up the site, currently zoned SP (Specific Plan).  Once approved, the request will permit the new mixed-use development on the 11.15 acres site.  The request was submitted by Fulmer Lucas Engineering, on behalf of the property owners.  Here’s the quick rundown:

The existing site consists of a water tower and 5 building structures, with the two largest buildings fronting 63rd Avenue North. Major site changes include the demolition of 4 building structures and the adaptive reuse of the largest 2-story building. The new multifamily structure will replace the warehouse structure fronting 63rd Avenue North as well. The final units counts and commercial square footage has not yet been confirmed.

Some of the preliminary improvements to the preserved structure includes exposing the window openings, adding a hip to the roof for added daylight, and street level units with access to patios. Overall site improvements will activate the public realm with 1st generation sidewalks, new tree canopy, bioretention zones, and new landscaped areas.  The project includes a mix of surface, garage, and street parking as well.

The new multifamily building is situated between Pennsylvania and Louisiana Avenues.  The lobby of the building is proposed along a new road onto the property and directly across the commercial spaces in the adaptive reuse building.  The new building includes an enclosed garage and consists primarily of multifamily units and amenity spaces. 

The project is slated for the 1/12/2023 Metro Planning Agenda.
