Fifth & Main Mixed-Used Development
Work completed while at Everton Oglesby Architects.
Fifth & Main is a dense, mixed-use development located at a prominent intersection in an East Nashville redevelopment district creating a distinct gateway to the historic neighborhoods of the area. The site benefits from close proximity to downtown and uninterrupted views of the skyline. The master plan design focused on providing a healthy mix of housing types (including apartments, condominiums and townhouses), encouraging pedestrian activity, and creating comfortable, communal outdoor spaces. As a result, most of the required parking is provided in an underground garage.
The phase one mixed-use building consists of 20,000 s.f. of retail space, 11,000 s.f. of office space and 118 condominiums. Large breezeways provide visual and physical connections to the city and the courtyard. The long façades along Fifth and Main Streets are carefully articulated to reduce the otherwise massive scale of the building. An upper-level breezeway facing toward downtown Nashville features a vegetated roof. The residential interiors are sleek and modern with stained concrete, exposed structural elements, accent colors and simple cabinetry and finishes.
