You’ve seen the 18-story building rise over the heart of Green Hills for quite some time. But what is the structure at the corner of Richard Jones and Hillsboro Pike going to offer, exactly?


1. Vertis Green Hills is coming together

Vertis Green Hills, located at 4000 Hillsboro Pike, is a luxury mixed-use apartment community that includes 85,000 square-feet of commercial space for office, retail and restaurants as well as a separate tower for apartments. Southern Land Company, the project’s developer, broke ground on the $125 million project in 2014 and expects the residential and retail space to be fully functional by late August or September.

Andy Ecton, marketing manager for Southern Land Company, said the first six floors are on track to open June 1. From there, one or two floors will open each week until the entire residential space is accessible by late July or early August. Penthouses will be among the last spaces to open.

“Our leasing leasing office will be fully functional the first week of June,” Ecton said. “By then, we’ll have concierge services and other things apartment renters need, like the mailroom, first floor resident lounge and business center.”

2. The residential community

Vertis’ residential tower features 310 apartment homes ranging from studio to three-bedroom apartments to 14 penthouses on the top two floors. The smallest units, at 580 square feet, start out at $1,799 per month. Penthouse apartments, which range in size from 1,672 square feet to 3,456 square feet, fall between $6,299 and $14,460 a month. Apartments are only available to lease.

Community-wide amenities will be available in early July, Ecton said, including a lounge and heated saltwater pool on the 11th floor, as well as a 24-hour fitness center and outdoor yoga platform on the 12th. Residents will have access to other amenities like reserved garage parking, housekeeping, dry cleaning, fitness classes and retail discounts, among other services. The community is pet-friendly and offers pet walking and sitting services.


3. What’s in it for locals

While the tower is reserved for Vertis residents, the four-story retail space will be open for community use and will feature four upscale dining options, as well as several chain and locally-owned retailers.

Restaurants will command the ground floor, with health and wellness facilities like CorePower Yoga, SculptHouse and The Set Studio operating out of the second floor. Other tenants include spa and salon services by La Bella e Famosa and Spoke and Weal. The third floor will be home to Green Hills Oral Surgery, Green Hills Pediatric Dentistry and Floyd Law Group.

“There's a lot of space still left on the third floor, so there will be more coming there,” Ecton said. “As for the fourth floor, that will be the home for Southern Land Company’s company offices.”


4. On track to open first

According to Ecton, restaurants and retailers are operating on different schedules, but he expects at least one restaurant, True Food Kitchen, to open by mid-June or early July, which corresponds with Vertis’ second round of move-ins.

The health-minded restaurant offers seasonal options, as well as gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan dining choices. True Food Kitchen will be joined later this year by Char, a steakhouse and piano bar. Other prospective tenants include Brixx Wood Fired Pizza and Santo.

“The retailers are a little bit harder to pin down because they're on their own schedule,” he said. “We construct the framework, but [the retailers] come in and build it out.”


5. Expect Vertis to be fully completed this fall

With True Food Kitchen and La Bella e Famosa both on track for early summer openings, other retail tenants aim to be up and running by August and September, Ecton said.

“We’re aiming to having all residential floors open by mid-summer,” he said. “Everyone will be able to enjoy more retail and restaurants options as we move through the rest of this year.”

With residents beginning the move-in process next month, its apartments are currently pre-leasing, with a leasing office located at 4004 Hillsboro Pike, Suite B-211. For more information and to keep up with developments, visit www.vertisgreenhills.com or call (615) 891-4331.
