Preliminary site work began this earlier week and groundbreaking looms on a boutique residential project in East Nashville to be called Gentry Way.
The site is located in the 200 block of the west side of Gentry Avenue about halfway between Fall Street on the north and Franklin Avenue on the south. A popular retail district that is sometimes called Three Points — and that includes, among others, Eastland Café, Rosepepper Cantina and Ugly Mugs — is located nearby.
Nashville-based Core Development and Woodland Street Partners will team to undertake the development and are targeting an early fall completion for Gentry Way, which will feature six carriage houses and four single-family homes and utilize a new alley for access, according to Newell Anderson, a Village Real Estate Services agent who will handle sales and marketing (Village and Core are sister companies).
A small Victorian home that fronts Gentry will be renovated and given a rear addition, Anderson said. Similarly, the four single-family homes (each of which will have a detached two-car garage) will face Gentry, he said. The carriage houses will be accessed via the existing and new alleys.
Paragon Construction Partners will serve as the general contractor and is also handling design.
Anderson (pictured) said the six carriage houses will be priced between $319,000 and $349,900. The four homes to front Gentry will be priced at about $600,000 each.
BB&T is providing the construction loan.
