Dowdle Construction Group announced the completion of phase one of the movie theater-turned-church in Bellevue. The 32,061-square-foot building is now home to The Hills Nashville. Here’s the quick rundown:
- What’s Now: Previously Bellevue Theater
- What’s Next: The Hills Nashville
- Location: 120 Belle Forest Circle
- Architect: Dryden Architecture & Design
- Contractor: Dowdle Construction Group
Phase one of the repurposed church building includes a main auditorium that seats 200 and a kids auditorium. Phase two of the building will include a main auditorium that seats 600, a youth auditorium and recreational space, a kids auditorium, a dedicated sensory space for children with special needs, offices for church staff and an outdoor prayer space.
When church services and activities are not in session, the building will be used as a coworking and event space. Three One Three (as in the number of days a year church spaces typically go unused) specializes in running coworking spaces out of churches and will handle the logistics. The company’s owner, Brennon Mobley, is a member of The Hills.
