"The high-quality housing Buffalo trail will ensure that many of Madison and Nashville's hard-working families can live close to their jobs, Cedar Hill Park and the growing Dickerson Pike community of businesses and neighborhoods,” said Councilmember Nancy VanReece who represents District 8.

"This development builds on the millions of dollars that have already been committed by both private and public investment throughout Madison, Maplewood, and Inglewood neighborhoods in District 8 that are creating vibrant mix-income communities throughout the northeast corridor of Davidson County."

HAMPTON INN & SUITES NASHVILLE NORTH AT SKYLINE AND

ROCK N’DOUGH PIZZA

The growth and camaraderie at the Madison Rivergate Chamber of Commerce is infectious. If you are doing business, or want to do business, North of Briley Parkway you should apply for membership and join the inventible economic growth.

We are all celebrating the completion of this new Hampton Inn & Suites location.

“We see this as a unique chance to help shape Nashville’s most prominent point of entry to the north," said Jarratt Bell, managing partner in Skyline Hospitality LLC, referring to the project location near Interstate 65 and Briley Parkway. "I expect further development to complement the Skyline community over the next few years."

Rock’n Dough Pizza Co began life as a Food Truck, traveling around Memphis, TN and serving up pizza. After a year or so of successfully slinging pizza pies from the truck, Rock’n Dough opened a brick-and-mortar location in Memphis. 12 months later, Rock’n Dough opened a restaurant and brewery in on Jackson Walk Plaza in the heart of downtown Jackson, TN. Followed by a Germantown, TN (outside Memphis) location. Rock’n Dough is continuing to grow, with a third restaurant NOW OPEN in Nashville, TN.
