Now&Next: How Phase 1 Residences Will Fit Between The New Nashville SC Soccer Stadium & Speedway.

Ever since my move to Nashville the Fairgrounds has been a bit of a mystery. Construction of the Expo Center was underway, and the stadium deal was hot & heavy. It was always a place I wanted to visit but always seemed closed. The announcement of the Phase 1 Mixed-use development sparked my interests and decided it was time to just pay it a visit.

Phase 1, also known as Block C, is the first development in the overall Mixed-use District. Block C is a 6-story building containing:

  • 337 residential units
  • Nearly 20,000 SF of Ground floor Commercial
  • Ample Amenities
  • Roof-Top Patio
  • Pool courtyard
  • Adjacent parking Deck

The development is located between the Fairgrounds Speedway & New Nashville SC Soccer Stadium. The overall Mixed-use district will provide both market rate and affordable housing options. Here is the quick rundown:
