East Nashville Gets New Development – Shops at Fatherland

A cornerstone East Nashville 37206 resident has recently announced a new shopping community called The Shops at Fatherland located near the corner of 10th and Fatherland.

The shops break ground the second week of April 2012 and are slated to be complete by the popular summer event, the Tomato Arts Festival in Five Points.  Mark Sanders in partnership with the developer of the shops beside Art & Invention Gallery plan to create a walkable, live-work type community.

Prior to official announcement, the area is already 40% rented.  Tenant-types, so far, include:

  • Art gallery
  • Herbal apothecary
  • Juice bar
  • Bead shop
  • Organic hair products
  • Photography studio

The most intriguing part of the development is, perhaps, the open air space near the back which will serve as a farmer’s market-type building.  The two-story buildings are live-work spaces with rental residences above and commercial space below.

The location is prime across the street from mc3, an almost sold-out condo development, owned also by Sanders.
