Crane you believe it? Developers officially broke ground on the expansion of Cool Springs’ McEwen Northside. The $125 million investment for “Block E” will take up 300,000 sqft of the 45-acre property.

Here it grows

Plans detail a nine-story building catering to office space with specialty retail and dining tenants occupying the ground level. A multi-level parking garage connected to the building via a covered walkway will offer 900 parking spaces.

The new block has already welcomed one of its anchor tenants, Designed Conveyor Systems (DCS), a supply chain company specializing in designing and building material handling solutions for warehouse operations. DCS leased 46,000 sqft for its corporate headquarters, which includes a technology-enabled showroom.

The new addition is expected to be finished by spring 2025 and will bring the development to 80% completion.

What you can experience now

In the past few months alone, McEwen has substantially grown its existing offerings. Pre-leasing has begun for Phase 2 of the on-site residential apartments, which added over 400 more homes to the complex + new amenities, including another resort-style pool and a concierge service.

Of course, there’s always room for retail. Recent storefronts joining the expanding directory:

  • Warby Parker | Designer eyewear | Opened September 2023
  • Finks | Family-operated fine jewelry | Opened October 2023
  • Rumble Boxing + Blue Sushi Sake Grill | Coming soon
