Antioch could be home to the Nashville area’s first Chinatown

A group of business owners, developers, and investors are looking to transform the Antioch space at 5255 Hickory Hollow Pkwy. into Tennessee Nashville Chinatown.

A hub for Asian architecture, culture, shopping, dining, and retail services. That’s what the developers behind Nashville’s first Chinatown hope to bring to 5255 Hickory Hollow Pkwy. by 2027.

The ~$27.5 million project, known as Tennessee Nashville Chinatown, is situated on 4.8 acres and has already secured a tenant for the 44,500-sqft building onsite. Pan-Asia Supermarket currently operates five Midwest locations and the Nashville addition, which is expected to be remodeled and open in 2025, would act as its flagship store.

The group plans to build three additional buildings, totaling 100,000 sqft with the existing one. One of the structures will be visible from Bell Road, while the other two buildings along the back of the property will house ~10 restaurants, retail, offices, and an event center.
