More Music Row Area Buildings Considered For Redevelopment

A recent proposal from developer Panattoni has some in the Nashville music community concerned. The developer is considering five buildings on 16th Avenue, in the heart of Nashville’s Music Row area, with plans to demolish the buildings and replace them with a new office building.

The houses include several 16th Avenue addresses, including 1022 (formerly Ed Bruce Agency), 1024 (home to Big Spark Music, Classic Ax, Wolf Mastering and Krazy Pop Studio), 1026 (formerly Creative Soul Music Academy), 1028 (current home to Bobby’s Idle Hour Tavern), and 1030 (Warner/Chappell Production Music).

The area is zoned for buildings up to five stories in height. Panattoni previously developed the building at 35 Music Square East which houses the Country Music Association, SESAC, and Panattoni’s Nashville office. The company is also developing an office building at 1 Music Circle South that will be home to BMG’s new offices.

An open meeting for the local community to discuss the plans will be held Tuesday (May 22), beginning at 6 p.m. at Edgehill United Methodist Church (1502 Edgehill in Nashville).
