SoBro's Two-Story Brick Church on Elm Street Sells for $6.2 Million

September 12, 2017 - As the surrounding neighborhood has evolved into the thriving district known as "SoBro," the two-story brick church at 410 Elm Street remains a testament to an earlier time.


Owned and occupied by Nashville-based Tuck Hinton Architects for over twenty years, the 12,915-square foot space sold last week for $6.2 million.


Nashville's own Darek Bell is a member of the investment group behind the purchase. Recognized as one of the nation's leading distillers by industry publication Spirits Business Magazine, Bell co-founded Corsair Distillery in 2008. 


The purchasers, who have yet to announce project specifics, commented that they are, "considering multiple uses for the property—including the possibility of a micro-brewery and/or distillery restaurant." Situated within walking distance of the Music City Center and the Omni Nashville Hotel, the building offers a 0.5-acre parking lot. 


Vickie Saito of Colliers International's Nashville office represented both sides in the transaction. Saito, who specializes in the adaptive reuse of historic structures for office users, noted: "The sellers bought this site well before the area had matured, but appreciated the history and elegance of the physical structure. The new owners also appreciate the irreplaceable story that the building offers."
