Metro Development and Housing Agency’s Design Review Committee gave approval today to the conceptual design for a new East Nashville apartment building planned by local developer Adam Leibowitz and a group of silent investors.
The development group, which has created East Side Development Partners LLC for the project, must now go before the Metro Board of Zoning Appeals on Dec. 20 to request a setback variance for the townhomes. In addition, the MDHA committee must give final approval.
The development, dubbed ‘East Side Apartments’ is projected to be constructed at 909 Main St. and cost approximately $7.4 million to construct. It will feature a four-story building with 48 units as well as 23 for-rent town homes with private garages. Leibowitz said units will range from 650 to 1,100 square feet, with rents starting at $800 and hitting $1,300.
Construction on-site is slated to begin in early 2013, with a hoped completion in early 2014.
