A gem of a hosiery mill built in the 1930s and used as a warehouse in a neighborhood known for its industrial nature, is joining many other underutilized area properties in redevelopment. The original building was converted to a mix of office, retail, and restaurant. Tall ceilings, wood structure, trusses, and historic steel windows create a space very sought after in Nashville yet dwindling in numbers.

A second phase initially looked to incorporate some new live-work units as well as a local coffee shop, but the success of phase 1 led to a modified concept for phase 2 which includes a three-story addition incorporating additional retail, office, and a sought after rooftop.  

An adjacent and similar building to phase 1, with rail spurs running through the site,  was also purchased on the same block and will be restored and repurposed as additional retail, restaurant,  and office space. The three components of this block will combine to form a creative campus in this formerly industrial location that will be seen as a true amenity to this fastly changing West Nashville neighborhood.  Termed the epicenter of the Nations and flanked by a new complete street, Stocking 51 is comprised of approximately 50,000 SF and growing.
