    Southeast Venture Brokers Sale of Cardwell Family Property to Crema Owner Treg Warner

    1 & 9 Hermitage Avenue Expands Property Assets for Coffeehouse Owner

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. Dec. 30, 2015 – The sale closed today on two parcels of land located at 1 Hermitage Ave. and 9 Hermitage Ave., in the highly sought-after SoBro district of Downtown Nashville. The property was sold for $4 million by the Cardwell family to Treg Warner, owner of the neighboring Crema coffeehouse.

    The parcels had been in the Cardwell family for more than 60 years, and had originally been the site of Cardwell’s Market. Currently the property is leased to Subway and Tri-Star Energy, which operates a Shell service station on the site.

    “The Cardwell Market was good for Nashville for 60 years and I’m sure that this property will be good for Nashville for many more years under the new owners,” said Cardwell family member Charlie Cardwell.

    Southeast Venture brokers J.C. Darby and James Roscoe High represented the sellers in the sale. The buyer represented himself.

    “We were excited to serve the Cardwell family on this sale,” said Darby.

    No plans are in the works to immediately redevelop the property. The businesses currently located at these parcels will remain open for the foreseeable future.
