NASHVILLE, TN, April 30, 2024 – Al. Neyer, a leading commercial real estate developer and design-builder, and the team behind Rock Lititz, the premier production campus and rehearsal venue based out of Lititz, PA, today announced the development of Rock Nashville, a premier destination entertainment rehearsal and production campus anticipated to open in 2025.

In February 2024 the joint venture closed on the 82-acre Whites Creek property, less than 10 miles from Downtown Nashville’s key attractions and famed music venues. The planned Rock Nashville campus will consist of 515,000 sq. ft. of sound stages, one up to 95 ft tall, creative offices, and production facilities of various sizes to accommodate the varying production specifications for live shows.

“As a full-service developer, we’re thrilled to be involved in the design, construction, and development of the future of Music City and live entertainment. As we continue to invest in the growing market of Nashville, this is our first foray into the entertainment world. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect operating partner to bring a new offering to the Nashville market alongside,” said Patrick Poole, Nashville Market Leader for Al. Neyer.

With Nashville emerging as one of the fastest-growing economic markets in the country and the record-breaking numbers the live entertainment industry has put up in the past year, Rock Nashville looks to enrich the local community with a collaborative campus that will serve both artists and the behind-the-scenes professionals supporting all genres of music and live entertainment, from up-and-coming local acts to globally recognized performers.

The Rock Lititz campus is the hub for a unique industry community serving the live event industry and offering resources ranging from sound & lighting design and engineering, production manufacturing, and touring artist and crew wellness and support services. The team plans to replicate this collaborative campus in Nashville.

“As we approach ten years since Rock Lititz opened its doors, we’ve been eager to find the next space and partner for expanding our support for the live entertainment industry. This unique and hard-working community thrives with access to specialized training, mentoring, and resources to help create custom live experiences for audiences worldwide.  It is with great excitement that we’ve identified Nashville and Al. Neyer as the right city and partner. We are passionate about growing this network, and Nashville is the perfect location to join with other industry leaders to create something special,” added Andrea Shirk, Rock Lititz President and CEO.

“SoundCheck has been part of the Nashville entertainment community for over 30 years, and we couldn’t be more excited to make Rock Nashville our new home,” said Soundcheck GM Kindal Jumper. “As Music City continues to grow as a premier destination for all genres of music, the campus’s state-of-the-art facilities will allow Soundcheck to meet the growing needs of today’s acts, ensuring the highest caliber production experience for artists and crews from Broadway to Bridgestone.”

Stuart C. McWhorter, Tennessee Commissioner for the Department of Economic and Community Development, added, “Tennessee is well-known for its ties to the music industry and has long benefited from the creativity of musicians, and today, we are celebrating another asset that will further cement our state as a globally recognized music destination. Rock Nashville’s investment in state-of-the-art studios and large-scale tour rehearsal space allows local musicians to stay closer to home while also attracting new companies, jobs and visitors to the state.”

Construction began in April 2024. Further details regarding the project timeline, design concepts, and partnership opportunities will be announced in the coming months.
