Local developers are teaming up to build an expansive mixed-use project in Madison.
Core Development and Forbes Plunkett Real Estate & Development, both based in Greater Nashville, are behind 612 Due West, an 18-acre development proposal just over six miles north of downtown.
The project’s purpose is creating an “urban-meets-suburban district” with an emphasis on arts, music, food and mixed-income housing, according to a statement from the project team. The master plan is a template for longer-term development plans on the site.
Along with commercial space and housing, WeGo Public Transit, Metro’s public transportation agency, has approved a new transit line that will run from Due West Avenue and connect with Dickerson Pike and Gallatin Pike, the statement said.
“We are excited about the opportunity to provide a vibrant and interesting transit stop,” the developers said in a statement.
Centric Architecture and Catalyst Design Group are involved in the project. The district’s council member, Nancy VanReece, has also been involved in development discussions, she said in an email to constituents.
