AEG to Develop Mixed-Use Entertainment District in Downtown Nashville
NASHVILLE, TENN. — AEG plans to develop a mixed-use entertainment district at Southwest Value Partner’s (SWVP) Nashville Yards in downtown Nashville. The Los Angeles-based sports and entertainment venue owner/operator purchased a four-acre parcel of land that will be anchored by a 4,000-capacity music venue, a flagship Regal Cinemas theater complex, a 600- to 700- capacity live entertainment club, an approximately 240-room boutique hotel and other entertainment, food and beverage options. SWVP’s Nashville Yards is a multi-phase office, retail, hospitality, entertainment and residential project that will span the western edge of downtown and stretch from Broadway north past Church Street. The 15-acre site was previously home to the LifeWay Christian Resources campus. The first site in Nashville Yards, a 591-room Hyatt Regency hotel, is expected to open in 2020. The AEG-developed district will be located at 10th Avenue between Commerce and Church streets, with the option to acquire an additional 1.5-acre parcel for further development. The project further expands AEG’s portfolio of entertainment districts, which includes L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, The O2 in London and Mercedes-Benz Platz in Berlin.
