Another new development will be springing along South Mt. Juliet Rd. bringing a contemporary blend of business and retail along with an "edgy" look.
Commercial Realty Services today announced the launch of Providence Station, a mixed-use development with an "urban feel" in Mt. Juliet.
CRS Partner Will Tyner said site work improvements have already begun on the 45,000 square foot project that will incorporate two "mixed used" buildings connected on the upper floors with a sky bridge.
Included in the Providence Station development will be the Marriott Courtyard, a 100-room full service hotel. The development will encompass 6.5 acres just south of Providence Parkway, near Providence Wine and Spirits.
"We are excited to bring to Mt. Juliet a truly unique mixed-use project including the first full-service hotel," said CRS founder Kenneth Powers. "By blending uses and bringing in elements of modern design we hope to create a development that delivers an exceptional experience and attracts a unique blend of tenants and businesses."
Tyner said the development will feature office suites on the second floors, with retail and restaurant spaces on the first.
"We are targeting something a little different for Providence Station," Tyner said. "We are talking to multiple local restaurant groups. We'd like chef-inspired restaurants and a mix of boutiques and service-driven businesses."
He said those services could be a spas, salons, coffee shops and similar-type places hotel patrons could utilize.
"We are super excited," Tyner said. "This is the last large piece of property on the 40-acre Providence West development," he said.
Powers bought the large parcel 12 years ago, and now there are businesses such as UMC Medical Building, Buffalo Wild Wings, Steak & Shake, Walgreens and Goodwill.
What's so unique about Providence Station are plans to give it an "edgy urban look," reminiscent of 42nd and Broad, another CRS project in Nashville that's a renovated warehouse, said Tyner.
He said the office component of the project is designed with small businesses in mind with shared conference rooms, restrooms and a "Starbucks-like" café and lobby area "perfect for meetings with clients or co-workers." Also planned is a large courtyard for outside dining and seating options that will be a gathering spot for shoppers, diners and workers.
While site work is in progress, vertical construction of the mixed-use buildings is expected to begin this summer when tenants are secured for the project.
