Modern boutique condos planned off West End

0 Comment

Developer Tom McCormick and partners Terry Coker and Dusty Hannah are planning a 10-unit, three-story luxury condo building in Nashville’s West End Park neighborhood.

With three units already sold in less than three weeks, they expect to break ground on Mezzo Lofts West End in September, McCormick said. The project will sit at 3210 Long Blvd.

The $5 million project will consist of units ranging from about 1,000 square feet to about 2,500 square feet. Prices start at $300,000 and top out at $740,000. The building will feature high-end modern finishes, an elevator, underground parking and roof-top terraces.

Smaller condo projects like Mezzo Lofts are easier to get financed than high-rise condos, which require a significant amount of pre-sales.

“It’s much harder to sell 50 out of 100 units than it is to sell five out of 10,” McCormick said.

The project’s architect is Preston Quirk

“The design is an important part of the project,” McCormick said. “We think there is a great need from a design standpoint for a modern look. Part of our criteria for the project was to add value through design.”

Why don’t we see more modern homes in Nashville?

“A lot of times a developer or builder ends up doing their taste,” McCormick said.
