Back in late September, rumblings about Nashville-based Stonehenge Real Estate Group bringing 550 residential units to the old Madison Mill site at the Charlotte Avenue Corridor started to make their way through the neighborhood, only to meet strong opposition from both local neighborhoods and city officials alike. Now, over three months later, a revised plan has been submitted that includes fewer units, zero single-family homes, and buildings with fewer stories.
In all, the new Madison Mill Lofts project now only has a proposed 400 residential units over two buildings, a reduction of 150 total units from the original 550 that were planned. Retail space is also a part of the new proposal and new, wider sidewalks would also be built in an effort to make for a safer, more walkable area for new and existing residents alike to enjoy.
According to reports, the board of the neighborhood group Historic Sylvan Park Inc unanimously voted against the original proposal, claiming the project would increase density in the neighborhood by 20%.
As of now, it’s unclear how the changes and unit reduction is being received by city officials, however, a community meeting where developers will explain the changes in detail is planned for January 6th.
