Nashville News: Residential Project Planned for The Nations

Ritzen Group Inc. plans to start construction this spring on nine residential units on roughly half an acre in The Nations neighborhood in West Nashville.

The project includes five town homes at the back with four detached single-family homes at the front. It is planned for property at 56th and Pennsylvania avenues previously occupied by West Nashville Free Will Baptist Church.
The development would be the latest project in The Nations, which is seeing growth in residences. “The significance of this project is that it’s in the middle of this part of town, not the easily accessible edges,” said Nashville real estate researcher Ed Branding. “This parcel is truly the meat of the neighborhood.”
Design is being finalized and the site is zoned for the project, said George Ritzen, vice president with developer Ritzen. “Our target is to deliver a different type of housing product so that we have varied architecture and varied price points within The Nations neighborhood,” Ritzen said, adding that as part of the design he would like to repurpose the church building if suitably possible.
Ritzen said the plan is to deliver some of the residential units later this year.
West Nashville Free Will Baptist exited the 4,600-square-foot building at 5600 Pennsylvania Ave. after merging with another local church, Ritzen said. The five connected town homes are planned for where the church building stands.
Ritzen also developed the Rutledge House condominium complex at 656 Second Ave. S., which originally were apartments.
