Standard Assembly has welcomed its first residents in the popular Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood. The new mixed-use community is comprised of two newly constructed buildings and the adaptive reuse of an existing single-story shed structure. Located in the heart of Wedgewood Houston the development was announced in early 2019 and replaced a former truck center. Standard Assembly features 310 residential units, over 12,000 square feet of retail space, 11 live/work units and multiple gathering areas and amenities. The project is located on 715 Merritt Avenue.
Located at 715 Merritt Avenue, Standard Assembly offers residents a mix of studio and one- and two-bedroom apartments with leases starting at $1,624/month. Each unit features timeless herringbone flooring, beautiful backsplashes and a carefully curated selection of finishes that are anything but standard. Residents have access to amenities throughout the three-acre campus, including a resort-style pool, a large fitness center, various co-working layouts, private courtyards, a dog park and spa, a bike room, a spacious two-story clubhouse and a future rooftop space with views of the downtown skyline and Wedgewood-Houston.
“Built in an area with a history of artistry and innovation, Standard Assembly hopes to foster creativity and local business for Nashvillians, new and old, as we join the Wedgewood-Houston community. We hope to preserve its essence and fuel its growth through our residents, 11 live/work spaces and curated local retail and vendor partnerships.”

“Nashville’s current growth is unprecedented, and as developers, it’s important to remember the role that we play in creating authentic additions to a growing city. We’re excited to introduce quality, unique housing for new residents and locals as they move to or within the city.”
— Nathan Hysmith, Principal at HY Ventures
Standard Assembly’s connection with local businesses sets it apart from many other developments in Nashville. Standard Assembly is actively establishing new relationships with local companies in Wedgewood-Houston to drive support for its residents and the growing community. The project brings fresh opportunities through its five distinctive retail spaces and living alley. Mota Moda, a lifestyle brand centered around the Nashville motorcycle scene, functional fashion and arts, has already committed to occupy one of the adaptive reuse spaces.
The Standard Assembly team will fill the remaining retail spaces with business tenants who fit the creative spirit of the neighborhood, giving residents access to the best of Nashville steps away from their door and adding to the existing top-quality restaurants, shops and galleries which make Wedgewood-Houston unique.
“When designing and constructing a new community, we aim to seamlessly integrate with an area’s past while evolving the neighborhood’s future. Through our collaborations with local partners such as Moto Moda, Peck Design Associates, Manuel Zeitlin Architects, EOA Architects and Hardaway Construction, we’ve prioritized that objective and added value to this distinctive neighborhood.”
