Event description
Explore two of Nashville's new housing ideas embracing modular technologies in design, construction and delivery.

About this Event

This tour and panel discussion will explore two Nashville projects that have embraced modular technologies in design, construction and delivery.

Alloy is an 82-unit condominium project and Nashville’s first prefabricated, modular multi-family project. Built in Pennsylvania and erected in Nashville’s Tech Hill neighborhood, it consists of two structures connected with exposed steel walkways.

Bento Nashville is a mixed-use development which includes hotel rooms, short and long-term apartments, co-workspace and restaurant. The developer’s tiki bar and food truck concept called B1281 Surf Club opened this summer. Each interior in Bento includes the Bento Interior System, a structural strut system that allows for the modular mounting of a large range of components, everything from simple shelving to entire kitchens, wall mounted beds, etc. The Bento Nashville project also includes a free-standing, prefabricated car storage system which was designed, fabricated and constructed by CityLift.
