Marathon Village: Updated Renderings Of Residential Development Near Fisk.

Renderings Courtesy of 2PA

The yet to be named 1501 Herman Street, is the product of a recent land sale by Fisk University. The land, which was previously a vacant lot, will now offer modern luxury apartments. 1501 Herman Street will also serve as a catalyst for an area where the available land consist of underutilized industrial warehouses and railroad tracks.

Previous images of this development showed a more modern but subdued architecture. The new architecture, which is more akin to nearby Germantown, could set a precedent for the type of character to expect in adjacent developments.

Comparison of the Previous Renderings vs. the Current Design

In the early1900’s, Marathon Village was a cluster of buildings that formerly housed Marathon Motor Works along Clinton street. Today, it is a strip of distilleries, music venues, and Nashville-Centric shops frequented by tourist. Although it appears that Marathon Village itself will stay intact; nearly every parcel surrounding it is slated for redevelopment. That would make Marathon Village more than just a tourist destination but the center of expanded development in the neighborhood.

Here is the rundown and construction photos of 1501 Herman Street:
