Village Real Estate Buys Nations Property for Adaptive Reuse Office Project

Cannonball’s Covers location at 5101 Kentucky Ave. to become office for fast-growing Village real estate agency.

Village Real Estate Services has paid $1.26 million for a service garage in The Nations with plans for adaptive reuse of that building as office space for the real estate agency.

Under the deal, the current occupant, auto interior repair shop Cannonball’s Covers, can remain at the 5101 Kentucky Ave. site until sometime next year. Renovations afterwards will transform the 8,000-square-foot building into Village’s sixth Nashville area office.

“That area is growing rapidly — a lot of interesting projects seem to be on the books,” said Mark Deutschmann, the founder and chief executive officer of fast-growing Village.

The 0.37-acre location at 51st Avenue North and Kentucky Avenue is not far from where residential and mixed-use projects are underway, including around 51st and Centennial.

Deutschmann said Village’s new office in The Nations neighborhood would serve Bellevue, West Meade, Sylvan Park and other areas of West Nashville. Asked whether that Village location would include space for other tenants, he replied “Not at this time.”

Currently, the firm has its main office on 21st Avenue South with other locations in 12South, East Nashville and Franklin. Another new Village office is planned for the Twelve60 Martin building, which the real estate agency’s Core Development affiliate developed at The Finery in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood.
