Development Still Booming In Nashville’s Nations Neighborhood Despite Pandemic – Fox 17

After construction concluded on Silo Studios, the 80,000-square-foot office, retail and restaurant complex in The Nations in West Nashville, Fox 17 shared the announcement via live broadcast and on their website. The announcement came with a positive outlook for Nashville’s development, despite the impacts the pandemic has had on the overall economy.

“The pandemic has slowed a lot of our usual routine but construction isn’t one of them,” said authors Kaylin Jorge and Sara Small. The article also touts many other Nations-area developments, including Silo Studios, Broadstone Nations, the expansion of Stocking 51, Silo Bend and LC Nashville.

Owned by South Carolina-based Flyway and designed by Southeast Venture Design, the unique project consisted of converting an old lumber mill into a trendy new commercial space. 

The article quotes Dowdle Construction Group President and Principal Glynn Dowdle saying, “‘We were ultimately able to save and restore enough of the original flooring to cover the main lobby, and the focal point when you walk in is a piece of the lumber mill machinery. The building was in pretty bad shape when we started, so to complete a complex project like this successfully, it took everyone – the owner, designer, engineer and contractor – working together as a team. We’re thrilled with the result.’”

In the broadcast portion of the news story, the on-air anchor, Sara Small, shows off the exterior of the brand new building, pointing out its green space and the bridge walkway that connects the parking lot to the front entrance. She also mentions that those interested in leasing a space can go on a tour with COVID-related safety measures.

“The Nations has been under construction for a number of years, but the area is really booming right now,” says Small.

The announcement was also shared by Commercial Construction and Renovation, the Nashville Business Journal and the Nashville Post.
