A request was filed for an overall height modification for properties located at 215 & 217 3rd Avenue North. Once approved, the request will add an additional ten floors for a 16-story mixed-use development. The request was submitted by STG Design. Here’s the quick rundown:
- What’s Now: Parking Garage & Lot
- What’s Next: Mixed-Use Development
- Architect: STG Design
- Capacity: Proposed Residential Mixed-use
Situated centrally into what was once the “Wall Street of the South”, ‘Bankers Alley’ has a storied past which dates back to the 1800’s.
Overall, Bankers Alley is located between 2nd & 4th Avenues North. However, the proposed mixed-use development includes the two properties between 3rd Ave. N and Printers Alley.
The diagram above shows the open-air retail within Bankers Alley in yellow. Printers Alley is to the left and 3rd Avenue North is to the right. The proposed development fronts 3rd Ave North and introduces a new iconic arch into Bankers alley. The development will flank Bankers Alley by what is currently a parking garage to the North & parking lot to the South. That can be seen in the images below.

Printers Alley also has a rich history and is a Nashville mainstay. The conceptual plans for Bankers Alley mixed-use development appears to compliment that history. Taking inspiration from the existing architecture and open-air retail on the ground level reinforces the existing character of the alley. The images below show how the Bankers Alley development will extend the activation of Printers Alley.
