Work is nearly complete on the tallest building in Green Hills. Vertis Green Hills is a mixed-use development that has reshaped the area.
In the heart of Green Hills, Vertis sits on the corner of Hillsboro Pike and Richard Jones Road.
“It’s really activated this part of Green Hills,” Southern Land’s Marketing Manager Andy Ecton told News 2.
The residential tower stands about 200-feet high. Views from the 18th-floor penthouse balcony are unlike any in the area — from the rolling hills to the homes and businesses in Green Hills.
The tower offers 310 apartment rentals starting at $1,600/month, and two levels of penthouses that start around $5,000/month, according to Ecton.
Ecton said 90 units, or about 30% of the building, are occupied right now.
Aside from amenities like a heated saltwater pool and outside bar, residents are steps away from the second building dedicated to restaurants, retail and office space.
“We have four restaurants with frontages there on that corner,” he said. “We have retail above that that we call ‘The Collection,’ which is a conglomeration of health and wellness businesses on the second floor.”
“You can do everything in one place — is the way we see it,” Ecton said. “So you have a dentist in our building. You can get a massage in our building. You can go workout at Core Power Yoga.”
The new development even draws some fans from surrounding cities.
“I think it’s a beautiful development, but what brings me here is True Food,” said a woman from Gallatin. “I come here frequently, as a True Food addict — so it’s just nice to have them in Nashville.”
All of the retail spots are now leased. Santo, a Mediterranean restaurant set to open in a few weeks, is the last retailer to move in.
The project has been about six years in the making. According to Ecton, a few more apartments need finishing touches, but otherwise, their work is complete.
