Five Points Pizza Heads to Sylvan Park

Popular East Nashville pizza joint expands to Charlotte Avenue

The popular East Nashville restaurant Five Points Pizza is opening a second location — on one of Nashville’s fastest-changing roads.

The restaurant will lease 4,600 square feet within a building newly under construction at 4100 Charlotte Ave., which is being developed by Mt. Juliet-based Commercial Realty Services. The developer disclosed the new restaurant to the Nashville Business Journal on Tuesday.

The three-story building will be anchored by the headquarters of office technology supplier NovaCopy. The building will open in spring 2017; Ikon Construction started work on-site this month, across the street from a retail strip that Commercial Realty Services also developed, featuring Flip Burger.

This project, named Sylvan Station, accelerates the ongoing revitalization of Charlotte Avenue, which features smaller-scale construction like this and several major mixed-use developments. As seen on our Crane Watch map, those include the newly opened Hill Center Sylvan Heights development across the street and a planned overhaul of the cavernous L&L Restaurant Equipment Co. building — as well as the OneCity and Capitol View developments closer to downtown.

Other retail space remains available for lease, said Kayce Foote, spokeswoman at Commercial Realty Services.

Five Points Pizza opened in 2011 and has established itself as one of the best-known and most-frequented pizza joints in the city. (If it’s any indication of their popularity, Lyft says more of their patrons request rides to or from Five Points Pizza than any other restaurant in the city.) The restaurant is owned by David Tieman, Tara Ertichek and Tanner Jacobs.

The owners were not immediately available for comment. We hope to catch up with them soon; check back for more at
