Hefferlin + Kronenberg Architects are the Master Planners and Architects for this 23-acre mixed-use development located on Riverfront Parkway. Working with Aaron White of Evergreen Real estate, we patterned the development on a street grid that ties together existing roads and features.
Streets connect to existing intersections at MLK and on Riverfront Parkway. We designed a new street-scape that straightens 9th street and extends MLK Boulevard to Goose Hollow Park, the trail-head to the Tennessee Riverwalk.
We worked closely with Heather Drake and Brandon Sutton of the RPA to achieve this network of streets and pathways that balanced density, parking, and connectivity. This resulted in a change of zone from M-1 to UGC that enabled the development plan.
The project is a diverse mix of uses with 486 apartments, 24 townhouses, 12 loft conversions, 30,000 SF of office space, a 4,000 SF restaurant, and 98 cottage homes, many adjoining the Riverwalk.
