On October 9th, the Chamber Midtown Advisory Council, which serves to engage and support business owners for approximately 450 area organizations, held its third quarterly meeting. The agenda focused on growth and development updates relevant to Midtown business owners as well as the entire Nashville community.

Dr. Robert Fisher of Belmont University spoke on Belmont’s growing student population and its campus, both the largest in school history, and how it has mirrored Nashville’s own unprecedented growth. Grant Callison and Chase Davidson of OneC1ty Nashville discussed the future of their development and how the project will connect the Charlotte Pike corridor to the West End submarket. Additionally, Scott Travis of Buckingham Properties shared details and timelines concerning the Buckingham Midtown mixed-use project. The project, now named Aertson Midtown, will drastically change the face Broadway and 21st Avenue and will be very exciting to see as it takes shape in the coming year.

As well as providing Midtown market news and insights, the Chamber Midtown meeting allowed business and community members to talk directly with lead developers for two of the city’s biggest projects. We had a great turnout and invite other Midtown organizations and business owners to join us for our next meeting in January.
