New Year, New Charlotte Avenue

2014 looks to be a very productive year for progress along Charlotte Avenue. The momentum has not let up – it seems we get more good news every month. There are some really great projects that have already begun along Charlotte and some that will break ground at some point this year.

While details are scarce, the one major announcement that we have yet to hear anything on is what the major development in the North Gulch will look like. We do know that HCA will occupy at least a third of the site, but Northwestern Mutual and Boyle have been silent, despite a recent announcement that details were tentatively going to be released in January. 

To give you an idea of the many great things happening along Charlotte Avenue, I’ve put together a development map above highlighting the various projects that are taking place throughout the corridor. While there isn’t much activity west of White Bridge Road, there is some expansion taking place at Nashville West. 

Here’s to a great year.

Details emerging on mixed use development at Charlotte/46th

A representative for the planned development at Charlotte and 46th presented at the most recent Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association meeting and shared some details of what will be taking shape on the most prominent corner on the corridor.

I am still trying to get in touch with the speaker to see if I can obtain any renderings, but for now here is what I know:

The parking lot in the northeast quadrant of the site is currently owned by ML Rose and is used for overflow parking. The abandoned service station (the green field) which was for a short time also a cell phone accessory shop, was recently demolished. I can only assume that the remaining parcel (in red) will be acquired at some point, just not sure when. It houses some sort of nondescript business (I want to say it has something to do with fire extinguishers?) which is still in operation as far as I can tell.

Again, I hope to get in touch with the developer soon to share more information on this exciting project.
