The future of Charlotte Avenue's medical district

While it isn't officially referred to as the "medical district", the stretch of Charlotte Avenue from I-440 to 18th Avenue, is housed predominately by health care entities. Nashville's major hospitals are in close proximity as is health care giant HCA. As reported earlier, some new developments are in the works that will further solidify this stretch of Charlotte Avenue as the destination for health care in Nashville.

While no detailed plans have been released, they are currently in the works, and below is just a glimpse into the areas that will be affected by these new projects.

As a result of the recent land swap between HCA and Nashville, a new public health center to replace the aging Lentz Health Center will be built on the tract of land between 25th and 26th Avenues on the north side of Charlotte. According to reports, the new health center will be LEED certified. As of yet, there is no news on when this project is supposed to break ground.

On a larger scale, Healthcare REIT completed a 16 acre tract of land with the purchase of the vacant office building that sits at 3000 Charlotte Avenue. Plans are in the works for a mixed use development that will sit very near the proposed 28th Avenue Connector. Nashville based Civil Site Design Group is working on plans for the mixed use development. Also no news on when this project is supposed to break ground.
