Vanderbilt Purchases Acre Of Land In Midtown, Including Former House Of Manuel Site



Vanderbilt has purchased an acre of land at 1918 and 1922 on Broadway in Nashville for more than $13 million, WSMV reports. The plot of land includes the former House of Manuel, located at 1922 Broadway, where designer Manuel housed his business operations since 1988 before relocating to downtown Nashville in 2013. Manuel has designed for Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, Bono, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, and numerous other artists. The building was constructed in 1908. Manuel moved his business operations to 800 Broadway in 2013.

Also on the site are the former Noshville restaurant location, as well as businesses including J&J’s Market, Midtown Gallery and Framers, and Local Color Gallery.

Previously, a developer intended to redevelop the property into a 25-story mixed-use project, until Vanderbilt purchased the acre from the developer.

The location is across the street from other Vanderbilt-owned buildings including Barbizon Apartments, Center Building, and 2007 Terrace Place, and 2015 Terrace Place.

“Vanderbilt is working with the current tenants of 1912 Broadway to ensure a smooth transition; JJ’s Market and Midtown Gallery & Framers will remain in their leases while Vanderbilt finalizes long-term plans for the site,” Vanderbilt representatives said in a statement.
