The team behind the Northside McEwen mixed-use project in Cool springs has begun site work and released images.

Boyle Investment Company, Northwood Investors and Northwood Ravin are partnering on the development, phase one of which will carry a price tag of about $120 million and include up to 200,000 square feet of Class A office, 26,000 square feet of retail space, three restaurant pads and 330 upscale residential units.

A phase one completion is eyed for 2018.

Northside McEwen will be located on McEwen Drive in Cool Springs, just west of the McEwen Drive and Interstate 65 interchange.

The architect is San Francisco-based Gensler.

“Northside McEwen is a 45-acre mixed-use project designed around the ideal work-life experience,” Phil Fawcett, Boyle partner, said in the release. “The thoughtfully planned district seamlessly blends together an active lifestyle with work, rest and play by delivering an intimate and vibrant urban experience in the suburbs that cohesively connects the office, residential, retail, restaurant, hotel and greenspace components as vital parts of the walkable community.”

The development team is noting Northside McEwen will be located in the core of Cool Springs, with an office daytime population of almost 90,000 people in a five-mile radius and almost 500,000 people within a 20-minute drive.

Road improvements for the project include extending Aspen Grove Drive from Jordan Road to McEwen Drive, connecting Northside McEwen to Cool Springs Boulevard, and adding a traffic signal at McEwen Drive and Aspen Grove Drive to connect the Whole Foods-anchored shopping center to Northside McEwen.
