The strip of retail property known as Demonbreun Hill has been sold for $33.5 million, reports The Tennessean. New Jersey-based real estate company Castle Rock Equity Group purchased the property from Nashville-based Elmington Capital Group.

Castle Rock said in a statement to The Tennessean that it plans to improve the retail center, with an eye toward an entertainment-based development to be built in the next several years.

“This location epitomizes the vibrant nightlife of the music industry,” said Castle Rock’s chief executive, Judah L. Angster. “We want to hone in on that spirit with each design and make sure that local establishments stay within the final footprint, as their character and identity are synonymous with Music Row.”

In fall 2013, Elmington paid nearly $17.7 million for the retail strip, which it then rebranded as Demonbreun Hill. In 2015, Elmington Capital Group obtained a mixed-use zoning for the area for the development, which would have included a grocery store and parking garage, along with residential units, hotel rooms, and office space.
