Division Street Gaining New Restaurants, $100 Million Project

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Division Street in Midtown Nashville has seen several new restaurants open in recent months and plans are in the works for a $100 million project.

Restaurant Aura opened on Division Street in late October. The restaurant specializes in handcrafted cocktails and world fusion food.

"Basically means we have influences and flavors from around the world," said Shonnie Tabers.

When the restaurant's owner was looking for a location last year, Division Street quickly became the ideal spot.

"If you come down here on a Saturday night you're going to see the streets are being walked up and down. It's definitely a busy part of town, it's something we wanted to be a big part of," Tabers said.

Restaurant Aura is not alone, several business owners are investing in Division Street.

SoulShine Pizza Factory opened in January. The Slider House, right next door, will start serving mini-burgers in May.

Long-time hot-spot Red Door recently expanded its bar to accommodate the growing crowds on Division Street.

At the other end, where Division meets 21st Avenue, a major project was recently approved.

Indianapolis-based Buckingham Companies has plans to build a $100 million project that will occupy 1.9 acres of land.

The project will include a hotel, residential space and retail and restaurant space.
