River North will anchor the redevelopment of the Cumberland River’s East Bank with a walkable waterfront district.  Once complete, the development will provide creative office space, vibrant retail, a 4-acre riverfront park, as well as two luxury apartment buildings: Oxbow and The Wayward. This phase of the development is slated for completion in 2023. Here’s the quick rundown:

Building Stats

  • 817,070 square feet of mixed-use space
  • 651 residential apartment units

  • approximately 80,000 square feet of retail space

All of this spread across 4 buildings on the riverfront site.


Formerly the site of a rail yard and shipping terminal, the project’s design pays homage to its historical setting by embracing the river as a central theme of the development.  River North incorporates artfully restored warehouses and modern industrial finishes into the architecture and design.
