Updated renderings were released today for The Riverside; a new mixed-use District located along West Trinity Lane & the Cumberland River. Ewing Properties is partnering on The Riverside with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) on the development. The Riverside’s plans are proposed as community focused, bringing 5 million square feet of residential, office, restaurant, and shopping spaces to Nashville. Additionally it will bring three distinct public parks that will encompass over 25 acres of the total community and be connected to North Nashville and accessed to downtown by water taxis.
According to the press release, in concept for over eight years, Ewing Properties and SOM have closely collaborated with Metro Nashville government and local community leaders and citizens of District 2. This was to ensure that the North Nashville neighborhood’s aspirations, concerns and expectations are reflected in the mix of residences, businesses, shopping, dining and extensive public open spaces being developed at the Riverside. as private enterprises and city government join forces to meet ever-growing demand for new housing, commercial spaces, and public amenities.
In addition to developing a spectrum of residential and commercial spaces with leading-edge and sustainable architectural design and an efficient, multimodal street network, the Riverside prominently focuses on three interconnected parks, which will be linked together along the edge of a Cumberland bluff, providing easy access to the river’s banks and setting a model to advance local biodiversity and decarbonization. They will offer the following distinct amenities:
