NASHVILLE, Tenn., September 21, 2015 – The Giddings Group of Augusta, Georgia closed yesterday on its purchase of 7.39 acres in MetroCenter, on which it plans to build a 251-unit luxury apartment complex. The property was purchased from Horsepower JV for $5 million.

“We are excited about moving ahead with our first project in Nashville, which we see as one of the most desirable markets in the country for multi-family real estate. And we believe we have one of the most desirable locations in the city – it’s near downtown and Germantown, has easy access to I-65 and the Cumberland River Greenway is only steps away,” said Peter Caye III, The Giddings Group’s managing partner.

The four-story luxury apartment complex, to be known as “The Duke Nashville,” will offer studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Focused on an enriched community experience and an enhanced lifestyle for residents, the new apartments will feature gourmet kitchens, resort-style community amenities, spacious floor plans and plenty of surface parking.

“I look for The Duke Nashville to be one of the most successful apartment projects in town,” said Southeast Ventures Principal Tarek El Gammal, who represented both buyer and seller in the transaction. “It’s a great location and the Giddings Group has extensive experience in multi-family real estate, as it owns other properties in Georgia and Texas. Plus, because of the surface parking available, they will not have to build an expensive parking garage, which will allow them to offer luxury apartments at very competitive rental rates.”
