New Heights is the best located, and most easily developed, district bordering downtown Nashville. It is also entirely within a Qualified Opportunity Zone (OZ).
New Heights is a neighborhood consisting of over 20 acres of land on the southern edge of downtown. Existing zoning is extremely favorable. With an expansive set of permitted uses and a maximum FAR of 5.0, New Heights has the potential for new development exceeding four million square feet.
Situated on an elevated vantage point between downtown Nashville and Wedgewood Houston, New Heights District is located just south of the downtown interstate loop between the historic Chestnut Hill neighborhood and CSX railroad tracks and bordered to the south by Fort Negley, Adventure Science Center and Nashville City Cemetery, a designated Arboretum. Direct access to the downtown core and abundant greenspace makes New Heights District uniquely attractive for pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use urban design and development.
The development team for New Heights District includes The Mainland Companies; Speedwagon Capital Partners; MZ Architects; Hawkins Partners, Inc.; Charles Hawkins Co.; Gilbert McLaughlin Casella Architects, PLC; Barge Cauthen & Associates, Inc.; MEL/ARCH Architecture Studio, LLC; and Hastings Architecture.
