The most exciting new de velop – ment in the works is 1100 Fatherland on the empty lot owned by Mark and Patti Sanders, who also developed the Shoppes on Fatherland, the 37206 building, and other properties in the immediate area. It will feature two restaurant spaces: One for Nuvo Burrito, with the second space still for lease. There will be three retail spaces, two of which have already been reserved for successful stores that have outgrown their space at the Shoppes on Fatherland. Rich McCoy, the architect on the project, is also excited about the street space running through the middle of the project that can be used for receptions or a gallery space for events.
At the Shoppes on Fatherland, most of the action involves businesses moving. In addition to the stores leaving for 1100 Fatherland, The Trunk Nashville is moving to the front facing Fatherland, and Rosebuds East is moving to one of the side shops. Elaine Hensley, co-owner of MOXIE fearless furnishings, is happy about the progress: “Being a part of an evolving artisan and merchant community is exciting, it connects us with people around the city who support local small business.” New stores are Adobe and Jones Fly Company, a fly fishing store. Coming soon is a shop featuring hemp products.
