NASHVILLE (Sept. 9, 2020) – After months of site prep and laying the development groundwork, Adventurous Journeys (AJ) Capital Partners’ Nashville Warehouse Co. project received its mass timber delivery ahead of schedule this summer keeping the project’s timeline intact for the first building to top out yesterday afternoon.
Providing owner representation and project management services on behalf of AJ Capital, CapEX Cumming is helping to oversee the construction and development process for the Nashville Warehouse team.
Despite well-publicized disruptions throughout the construction industry, construction leadership at the Nashville Warehouse Co. has been able to successfully navigate changes and mitigate risks due to the use of the prefabricated materials brought in from Canada and Northern Europe.
The main Nashville Warehouse buildings will total more than 200,000 square feet, the largest mass timber development in Nashville to date, and will be four and five stories each, respectively. Uniquely constructed with lightweight prefabricated mass timber, which requires less energy and produces less pollution during construction than its neighboring buildings made with traditional structural materials such as concrete and steel. Not only do ecofriendly mass timber structures encourage connection with nature from the basic structural level, but they also help occupant wellness by removing carbon dioxide and sequester it from the atmosphere. Using this sustainable and renewable resource in construction allows for quicker construction times, and once completed, mass timber serves as a prime insulator for the building.
The Nashville Warehouse project will be a 5.3-acre mixed-use development which will comprise 300 apartments, office buildings, and a live music venue in Chestnut Hill. Formally an urban industrial site, Nashville Warehouse will also provide ample parking onsite for guests and has a scheduled turnover from the construction team to tenants in Q2 2021.
“It is a privilege to continue to work with AJ Capital on such unique and exciting developments,” said Joe Saatkamp, President at CapEX Cumming. “It never gets old seeing the creative minds over at Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture and AJ Capital come together to create some of the most dynamic projects Nashville has ever seen. Making sure these projects come together successfully, and authentically, is something our team takes very seriously.”
Currently being developed by AJ Capital, Nashville Warehouse Co. was designed by Chicago-based Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture, and DPR Construction is serving as the general contractor.
In addition to the Nashville Warehouse Co. project, CapEX Cumming and AJ Capital have also teamed up for the recently completed Graduate Nashville and are currently working together to bring new life to the old May Hosiery Co-Op commercial space nearby.
CapEX Cumming is currently leading some of the most high-profile office, residential, hospitality, and mixed-use projects under development in Nashville and is growing its presence throughout Texas, Louisiana, and neighboring states. Nashville-based CapEX Cumming recently merged with Cumming, an international project and cost management consultancy, and provides project management and owner representation, along with related services such as estimating and scheduling, across the central U.S. CapEX Cumming oversees critical construction and renovation assignments to make sure the projects stay within budget and adhere to established timelines, providing clients with transparency and accountability.
