The Preiss Company Begins Development of Signature Music Row, a Multifamily Complex

Tuesday February 22, 2022

Officials at The Preiss Company (TPCO), one of the nation’s largest, privately-held, student housing owner-operators, today announced that the company has started development of Signature Music Row, a 105-unit multifamily housing project in Nashville, Tenn. TPCO partnered with Speedwagon Capital Partners on the development, and First Horizon provided additional loan contributions. JLL Capital Markets acted as the debt broker. Located in Nashville’s Music Row submarket, the new development is within walking distance of Vanderbilt University and The Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

“The Nashville market has enjoyed phenomenal growth over the past few years,” said Susan Folckemer, chief acquisition and development officer, TPCO. “Amazon recently added 10,000 positions locally, and Oracle is in the process of bringing multiple thousands more jobs to the region. Furthermore, Nashville consistently ranks as one of the top places to live in the Southern U.S., coming in at #1 Best Places to Live in Tennessee (U.S. World & News Report); #1 Metropolitan Economic Strength (Policom); and #3 ‘The South’s Best Cities 2020’ (Southern Living). We look forward to expanding our Tennessee footprint as we pursue our aggressive growth objectives.”

Signature Music Row is situated amongst some of the most iconic and historical country music recording studios in the world, just over a mile from Bridgestone Arena and the Country Music Hall of Fame near Nashville’s Edgehill Neighborhood and its multiple shops, parks and nightlife options. Units will include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations. Residential square footage will total 74,837 in 101 units, in addition to 3,000 square feet of class A clubhouse, leasing, fitness and amenity spaces, as well as a sky lounge overlooking Music Row. Accommodations will feature Corian countertops with tile backsplash, two tone cabinetry, stainless appliances, wood plank flooring throughout the unit and LED ceiling fans in each bedroom and living room. Bathrooms will have tiled baths or shower stalls.

“The Preiss Company is known for its ability to deliver best-in-class apartment projects in unbeatable locations,” said Roger Edwards, managing director, JLL Capital Markets. “The Signature Music Row development will provide residents with an ideal location to work, learn, live and relax, and we look forward to working on additional deals with TPCO moving forward.”
