It will be a walkable community that will also connect to the Nashville Greenway systems, encouraging multiple types of transportation.  The vision includes a hierarchy of safe, vibrant streets and will implement an architectural character inspired by the love of Nashville.
The project is expected to take about 6 years to be developed if the economy stays as healthy as it is right now, or if it slows it may take up to 10 years.  Exciting things are coming to Nashville!
