The 9,000-square-foot facility designed by Moody Nolan Architects will break ground in the spring of 2024 with an estimated project cost of $6 million. Contributions to the Bordeaux Collaborative, as it is currently called, can be made by pledging or contributing below.
In 2019, over one dozen nonprofit organizations were invited to take part in conversations around needs and gaps in services in the Bordeaux community. Over the next two years, monthly discussions and facilitated meetings helped agencies learn about each other, partnership challenges, barriers to collaboration, and opportunities for real growth for the community. From those initial conversations grew ideas of a community hub and collaboration space. In 2022, Creative Girls Rock and FiftyForward Bordeaux Senior Center agreed to move forward toward something new.
Over the last three decades, collaborative spaces or centers have emerged in Nashville’s neighborhoods, with the exception of historic Bordeaux. FiftyForward and Creative Girls Rock have come together to make a unifying, collaborative space that will house these two anchor organizations and provide a much-needed flexible space for community organizations making essential programs and services more readily available and accessible for the seniors, young girls, families, and vulnerable populations in Bordeaux and surrounding areas.
