Nashville Tech School Site Eyed for Mixed Use Redevelopment

Southern Land Co. finalized the purchase of more than 16 acres in East Nashville with an eye toward redevelopment. Southern Land paid $33.75 million for the site, which currently houses Lincoln School of Technology.

The seller was an LLC affiliated with Lincoln Educational Services Corp., which had owned the land since buying Nashville Auto-Diesel College in 2003, 

“Our goal is to design a vibrant mixed-use community that will artfully serve the people of East Nashville as a walkable neighborhood that enhances people’s lives,” Tim Downey, founder and CEO of Southern Land, previously stated.

The project will include a maximum of 800 multifamily units and 300,000 square feet of commercial space. The development will also include live-work units, three parking structures and a maximum of 150 single-family houses or townhomes. Lincoln School of Technology will continue to operate at the site while it secures a new home for operations.
