The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee on Tuesday approved the final plan for a boutique hotel building slated for East Nashville — with a groundbreaking for the project to tentatively take place by September’s end.
Local development company ZMX Inc. is eyeing the six-story building, to be called Eastline, for raw land with an address of 949 Main St. The roughly 75-foot-tall building will offer 75 hotel rooms and two ground-floor retail spaces fronting Main Street, according to a release.
ZMX paid $3.98 million for the three-parcel property in February (read here) and previously had considered either for-rent or for-sale residential units for the future building.
Nashville-based Catalyst Design Group is handling engineering and land-planning duties. Centric Architecture is designing Eastline, with Elam Freeman of Ojas Partners overseeing the marketing and leasing of the two retail spaces. Both are locally based.
