Greenways are linear parks and trails that connect neighborhoods to schools, shopping areas, downtown, offices, recreation areas, open spaces and other points of activity. Often located along natural landscape features like streams, rivers and ridges, or along built features, such as railroad corridors and scenic highways, greenways provide valuable greenspace for conservation, recreation and alternative transportation. Greenways provide all citizens with barrier-free access to natural resources and recreational opportunities.
Greenways are:

  • in demand by Nashvillians and visitors
  • safe for users and adjacent property owners
  • developed through cooperation with the community
  • built by Metro Parks and overseen by the Greenways Commission, which advises the Park Board
  • supported by Greenways for Nashville, a private-sector nonprofit friends group

With greenways, you can get where you need to go without a car. Click here to see a “Gas Free Bicycle Date” captured on video by Jeff Barrie of Kilowatt Ours.

H.G. Hill Realty Co. announced today it has signed leases with restaurants Double Dogs, The Sorting Table and Farm Burger for its mixed-use Hill Center Sylvan Heights development under construction within the 4000 block of Charlotte Avenue in West Nashville.

Financial terms of the leases were not disclosed in a release.

Of note, a Double Dogs operates from Hill Realty Co.’s Hill Center Acklen in Hillsboro Village.

The three tenants are expected to be operational by summer 2016.

“As I’ve stated before, the Charlotte corridor is Nashville’s last frontier,” Jimmy Granbery, Hill Realty CEO, said in the release. “Its rapid rebirth continues to unfold, making the area increasingly appealing for residents, retail and other business owners. We are pleased to bring Double Dogs, The Sorting Table and Farm Burger to the neighborhood.”

Double Dogs, a bar and restaurant concept with locations in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Knoxville, will occupy a 4,500-square-foot space. Dan Davis, founder and owner of Rafferty’s, is the owner of the restaurant, which is known, in part, for its wall-to-wall televisions, 22-ounce beer mugs and dog friendly vibe.

The Sorting Table will be a new concept inspired by, according to the release, “quintessential old world bistros and neighborhood food halls.” Owned by Mattie Jackson, the restaurant will take a 3,900-square-foot space and offer a wine bar, kitchen, artisan market and specialty bottle shop.

Farm Burger, founded by an organic farmer and a rancher, offers burgers made from a “custom blend” of premium grass-fed beef; seasonal salads, sides and shakes; and local and small-production craft beers and wines.

The 3,050-square-foot space will be Farm Burger’s eighth location, with existing locations in Atlanta; Berkeley, California; Marin, California; and Asheville, N.C., and an upcoming location in Huntsville, Ala. opening in early 2016.
