A request was submitted for final site plan approval for a new academic building at Belmont University. The request included properties located along 14th Avenue South, between Wedgewood & Acklen Avenues, and located within the Belmont University Institutional Overlay District. Once approved the request will permit the six-story academic building and parking garage on the 2.94-acre site. The request was submitted by Catalyst Design Group, on behalf of Belmont University. Here’s the quick rundown.
