Phase 2 of the redevelopment of Donelson Plaza is underway which will add a multi-family component to the site. The addition of multi-family will realize the vision of Donelson Plaza as a true mixed-use hub. Its proximity to the Music City Star Commuter Rail Station also reinforces its mixed-use benefits.

The request for final site plan approval was recently submitted for the site. Once approved, the request will permit 104 multi-family residential units with an expected completion of Q4 2022. The request was made by Building Ideas, LLC.

In late 2018, Holladay Properties began the revitalization of Donelson Plaza, located in the heart of the Donelson community. With Donelson’s new Nashville Public Library branch as its centerpiece, the 1960s era shopping center continues to be transformed into a modern town center as a hub of the Donelson community.  Here’s the quick rundown:
