Residential development Nashville

An Atlanta-based developer with a strong Nashville presence is planning two buildings for Rolling Mill Hill.

SWH Residential Partners will go before the Metro Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee on Nov. 19 as part of a request for approval of the design of a mixed-use building proposed for RMH. The building, if approved, would offer 194 apartments and about 11, 000 square feet of either commercial or retail space, according to John Tirrill, SWH managing partner.

Tirrill said Nashville-based Smith Gee Studio is the architect. Also, Vickie Saito and Charlotte Ford, brokers with the Nashville office of Colliers International, will market the commercial space. In addition. Littlejohn Engineering and Hodgson & Douglas (planning and landscape architecture) are involved in the project.

The Nov. 19 meeting follows SWH’s successful effort to finalize a land lease with MDHA on three RMH parcels.

“We will combine two parcels (seen in the image below, bordered by Nance Place, Ryman Lofts and The Metro, and severed by a road) to create public space, including public art, and to construct, with MDHA approval, the proposed mixed-up building on that parcel, ” Tirrill said. “Development on the third parcel and the second building is down the road.”

SWH currently is fee developing on another Rolling Mill Hill site CityView Apartments for Des Moines, Iowa-based Principal Global Real Estate Investors. (Read more here.)

Joe Cain, MDHA director of urban development, said he is very optimistic the proposed SWH building (no rendering is available yet) will be attractive and functional.

“We are working with [SWH] and their design team as they further the project along, ” Cain said. “I think the building will look great.”

Rolling Mill Hill already is home to The Art Deco, The Metro, Nance Place, Ryman Lofts and The Victorian apartment buildings (seen in image below). SWH owned The Metro, The Art Deco and The Victorian before selling in 2012 to the aforementioned Principal Global Real Estate Investors for $11.4 million. MDHA developed Ryman Lofts and developed Nance Place.
