Elmington Capital releases Demonbreun Hill rendering

Elmington Capital Group provided the first rendering of the mixed-use redevelopment project the company plans for 3.38 acres on Demonbreun Street and 16th Avenue South in Midtown.

On Thursday the Nashville-based investment firm will go before the Metro Planning Commission to seek removal of the existing zoning overlay and approval for specific plan, mixed-use zoning.

Elmington’s site plan shows a more than 1 million square feet maximum gross building area with a maximum height of 22 stories. The development summary for Demonbreun Hill includes up to 590 residential units, up to 640 hotel rooms, up to 103,000 square feet of retail space and up to 420,000 square feet of office space.

The rendering by Dallas-based Humphreys & Partners Architects shows space for a grocery store, which previous reports suggested could be a Publix, as part of the development. Dominic Zabriskie, Elmington’s director of asset management, said through an email on Tuesday that the company had no update on the grocery store.

Last month, Elmington filed with Metro Planning seeking to remove properties within the redevelopment footprint from under the Music Row urban design overlay. Zabriskie said construction of the first phase was expected to start with a roughly 200-space parking garage and won’t affect tenants of the retail strip there, including Off Broadway Shoes, First Citizens Bank and Tin Roof.

Addresses of the dozen properties involved in that filing included 1512, 1514, 1516, 1522, 1524, 1528, and 1530 Demonbreun; 112 and 118 16th Ave. S.; and 1529, 1531 and 1533 McGavock St. Metro planning department’s staff is recommending either deferral to the June 11 planning commission meeting, approval with all of the planning staff’s conditions or disapproval without all conditions.

Design consulting firm Kimley-Horn is listed as applicant on the application with Elmington listed as the owner of the properties.
