‘Chartwell At Marathon’ – How This 360,000 SF Development Adds To Marathon Village.

Earlier this year, a request for final site plan approval was filed for The Chartwell at Marathon ( The Chartwell) mixed-use development.  It includes properties located at 801 12th Avenue North and 800 12th Avenue North adjacent to Downtown Nashville. Once to approved it would permit 379 multi-family Apartments, 11 Townhome Residences and 4,000 SF of Live/Work Flex Space.  The total developed area square footage is 360,000 SF. The request was filed by Catalyst Design Group, applicant & Cumberland Trust Company, owner.

Designed by David Baker Architects & JJCA, the conceptual design appears to be promising by introducing a truly urban design. The ground level emphasizes walkability through interconnected walkways that connects residents to multiple lounges, courtyards, and other amenities. In addition, the proposed scale of the interior storefront glazing and brick facades reinforces the urban setting & connection to Marathon Village.  

Here is a Now&Next video which shows how The Chartwell will transform 12th Avenue N.
