Real estate notes: Summer opening eyed for Olmstead Nashville

The developers of Olmsted Nashville, a six-story apartment building under construction in SoBro, announced today the first units in the structure will open in the summer.

With an address of 501 Fifth Ave. S, Olmsted Nashville (pictured) will offer 328 apartment homes on a 1.89-acre site located one block south of Korean Veterans Boulevard.

The development is a partnership between CF Real Estate Services (CF), Llewellyn Development and the Carlyle Group.

“With Olmsted Nashville we wanted to build an awesome place to call home,” Brett Oliver, CR director of development, said in the release. “When people step into Olmsted, we want them to feel comfortable, to feel relaxed and to want to engage in the space so that a genuine sense of community can flourish. We’ve worked really hard with our design, including collaborating with local designers and artisans, to make something cool that translates into a wonderful resident experience and feels true to Nashville’s emerging and leading culture.”

A signature element of the building will be seven stacked concrete pipes in the downstairs common area and each of which weighing 18,600 pounds. Oliver credited general contractor Cambridge Swinerton Builders regarding the installation. Inside, the pipes will play “an exciting role in the functionality of the complex, which Olmsted plans to highlight at a later date,” the release notes.

“Our ultimate goal is for this place to have a soul and for our residents to be proud to call Olmsted home,” Oliver said. “We think the market is starving for such a place, so we set our goals high to deliver this kind of living experience.”

Olmsted will offer a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Amenities include an outdoor pool, fitness center, dog spa and top floor leasing office and roof lounge.

“From Olmsted, you can easily walk to downtown Nashville’s thriving office market, but you are also immediately surrounded by distinctly original neighborhood spots like Bar Sovereign or Czann’s Brewing and even nearby creative outposts like Isle of Printing or Third Man Records,” Oliver said.
