Developers have announced plans for a $700 million project in Cool Springs. It would transform nearly 150-acres along I-65 into a massive complex of offices, shops and compact neighborhoods.
“Ovation” is the name. It would be located just south of Nissan North America’s headquarters. Developers Highwoods Properties and SouthStar plan to keep more than 50 acres of open space, preserving three hilltops on the site. They describe it as a “pedestrian-focused” community to include a transit system that would connect with neighboring businesses and residences.
A three-minute video tour of the community released Tuesday also describes a 300-room hotel and 1.4 million square feet for offices, aimed at emerging companies looking for creative workspace.
Site work is scheduled to begin in 2014.
