Você Sign Lighting Video

A roaring fire, a warm vibe, and an enthusiastic crowd came out to Você to celebrate the official lighting of the beautiful sign that now graces our entrance. A big thank you to all of you who were able to attend and to those who we know were there in spirit.

Você is beginning to take shape, and we couldn’t be prouder or more excited! Here’s a video of our successful sign-lighting event. Enjoy!

Você Fall Event Celebrates Official Sign Lighting

A sizable and enthusiastic crowd gathered this week in the woods off Granny White Pike for the official lighting of the beautiful and distinctive sign that now graces the entrance of Você, Nashville’s newest and most innovative neighborhood.

The sign was designed to conform with the “dark sky” practices that will be maintained across all Você’s home and community lighting, to reduce scattered light and as a courtesy to Vanderbilt’s Dyer Observatory, located nearby.

As a roaring bonfire kept things cozy, guests enjoyed great food, drink and music as they mingled in the beautiful setting on a clear-and-crisp October evening.

Calling the crowd together, Você’s Shannon Pollard led the procession down the hill for a coordinated countdown to the inaugural lighting of the sign.

Groundbreaking on the first home sites is scheduled to begin soon as Você begins to take shape.

Voce – The Mandate

The Você story begins with Country Music Hall of Fame member Eddy Arnold, and is rooted in love and commitment to family, to the land, and to the community. Arnold purchased the original tract back in 1950 and settled with his young family on what was then known as “Windy Ridge.” Shannon Pollard, the grandson of Eddy Arnold and trustee of the late singer’s real estate holdings and formidable musical legacy, relates a few childhood stories of days spent with his grandparents on the property and discusses a central mandate left to him by his grandfather.

“Two years before my grandfather died, he and I walked around this property, and he talked to about me saving the trees,” Pollard recalls. “We were walking in front of the cabin, and he looked up into the trees and said, ‘Save as many of these as you can.'”

 

Você – Resource Protection and Reclamation

The Você story is rooted in Eddy Arnold’s commitment to and passion for this special land, which he purchased back 1950. From the very earliest stages of development, the focus has been on preserving as many of the trees as possible. Out of over 5000 trees on the property, only 180 have been removed, and much of that material has been repurposed for use as flooring, fencing and even mulch on Voce’s many hiking trails.

Jonathan Cummings, who has spent the last 32 years working on the property, recalls his days on the land with Eddy Arnold and the special mandate that has been passed down.

Você’s Offical On-Site Launch – A Perfect Autumn Evening

A picture-perfect fall evening, a setting sun, and a brisk October breeze combined to create a storybook setting for a wonderful crowd at the official on-site launch of Você, a community inspired by nature.

Guests enjoyed great food and drink, a roaring bonfire, great music (courtesy of Plowboy Records artist Paul Burch) and informative presentations from project principals Shannon Pollard of Armistead Arnold Pollard Real Estate Services, along with Dudley Smith and Rob Pease from Land Innovations.

This was not your traditional groundbreaking, but then Você is not your typical development. Partygoers got a first-hand look at Você’s unspoiled natural environment via guided golf cart tours. Throughout Você’s sustainably oriented development and growth process, that environment will be preserved, fulfilling a promise to country music legend Eddy Arnold, the last steward of this amazing property.
