NASHVILLE, TENN. — Northwestern Mutual has provided $73 million in construction financing for Capitol View, a $750 million, 32-acre mixed-use development underway in Nashville’s North Gulch area. Upon completion the project will feature 1.1 million square feet of Class A office space, 130,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, 600 multifamily residences, 410 hotel rooms and a 2.5-acre urban park connected to Nashville’s greenway system. The co-developers, Boyle Investment Co. and Northwood Ravin, will begin construction this month on the next phase of Capitol View. Known as Block D, the $115 million phase will encompass seven city blocks at the intersection of I-40/Charlotte Avenue and 11th Avenue North and feature a mixed-use structure with 60,000 square feet of ground-level retail space, 40,000 square feet of second-floor loft office space and 378 residential units.

A portion of Nelson Merry Street will be designated as “Festival Street,” which can be closed off for festivals and other events.
