It was simply a matter of time before concrete redevelopment plans emerged for the massive L&L Restaurant Equipment property on Charlotte Avenue, as The Tennessean now reports that longtime owner Tamay Ozari intends to transform the warehouse space into the Factory of Nashville, a marketplace which will include a large restaurant component, shops and office space.

Likening the project to New York City's famous Chelsea Market, Ozari plans to remodel the 55,000 square foot building to accommodate a healthy gourmet food court with eight restaurants, along with a local brew pub and a 5,000 to 8,000 square foot restaurant for which he's trying to attract a celebrity chef. Retail shops and office suites will round out the space.

Work on the project is expected to begin within the next three months, with an expected completion date sometime around the end of 2017.
