Preliminary plans have been submitted for a permanent supportive housing development in downtown Nashville. The project is led by design-build team Bell Construction & Moody Nolan and submitted on behalf of the Metro Government.
The project’s location is proposed on 600 2nd Avenue North (previously 505 2nd Avenue North). The youth detention center adjacent to the site is being demolished. According to reports from 2020, the project is to provide housing options for those experiencing homelessness by the Fall of 2022. The new opening date has not been posted.
Here’s a short video for more context.
The facility is proposed as a 5-story structure with approximately 88 units. The ground floor includes offices for social services, clinical spaces, as well as a multipurpose room. The next 4 levels propose 1-bedroom units including handicap accessible units. Each level also includes a community room with laundry facilities with an outdoor balcony.
The proposed architectural elements are bold, draws from new surrounding architecture, and will embody a true sense of dignity.
