Core Development has five acres under contract for latest project just south of downtown on Nolensville Pike.

Urban infill developer Core Development has five acres south of The Fairgrounds Nashville on Nolensville Pike under contact with plans a project with up to 180 condos and 10,000 square feet of retail space.

The mixed-use condo development planned for the vacant field at 2165 Nolensville Pike would be the latest for Nashville-based Core in that area near the Casa Azafran community center, which bills itself as The Gateway to Nashville’s International District.

“Obviously, we’re very high on that area,” said  Kent Campbell, vice president with Core Development, a sister company to the Village Real Estate Services real estate agency. “We believe that the Nolensville corridor from The Fairgrounds to (Interstate)-440 represents a great opportunity.”

At Herron Drive on the other side of Nolensville Pike, Core just a obtained a grading permit to move forward with its 82-unit Alloy condo developmentthat’s expected to include live-work units, the new home for Bongo Java Roasting Co. and 8,000 square feet of maker or artisan space. At the Finery to the east in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood, the developer just completed the 26-unit Six10 Merritt condos with commercial space and has started work on the 47-unit Twelve60 Martin project that would also include commercial space.

On Thursday, Core will go before the Metro Board of Zoning Appeals seeking a special exception for height and setback along Nolensville Pike related to its new project planned at the intersection with Napolean Avenue.
