Crews are expected to begin construction of the large mixed-use development set for two acres of property in Midtown.

The property, temporarily named Buckingham Midtown, sits at the intersection of 21st Avenue South, Broadway and Division Street, adjacent to Vanderbilt University’s campus.

Buckingham Companies hopes the project will bring “an eclectic mix of residents and retail opportunities that will advance Midtown as an energetic, walkable district.”

It will be 17 stories tall and include 350 apartments, a 180-room full-service hotel and 35,000 square feet of meeting space.

“The project’s design has evolved and is intended to be reflective of and responsive to the creative and passionate feel of the Midtown area,” said Scott Travis, vice president of development at Indianapolis-based Buckingham Companies.

Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants has been chosen to operate the hotel.

Mike Depatie, the president and CEO of Kimpton, said the company has long admired the eclectic vitality of Nashville and are excited to bring their hotel to the area.

“We’ve been looking for the right opportunity in Nashville, and the Buckingham Midtown property is the perfect partnership for a number of reasons,” Depatie said in a release.

Buckingham Midtown is intended to be LEED certified upon completion.

“I commend the company for addressing the sensitivities of neighborhood residents by incorporating design elements that blend with the area,” said Mayor Karl Dean.

Various components of Buckingham Midtown will open in phases but the completion date is set for early 2017.
