Nashville’s new 82-acre rehearsal and production campus is gearing up to open in 2025, as a joint venture between the team behind Rock Lititz and leading commercial real estate developer Al. Neyer.

In February, the joint venture closed on the Whites Creek property, an 82-acre campus less than 10 miles from downtown Nashville’s key attractions and music venues. The Rock Nashville campus will feature 515,000 square feet of sound stages — one of them up to 95 feet tall — creative offices, and production facilities of various sizes to accommodate different production specifications for live shows.

Nashville continues to shine as one of the fastest growing economic markets in the country, and with record-breaking numbers across the live entertainment sector in the last year, Rock Nashville aims to enrich the local community with a collaborative campus serving both artists and professionals behind the scenes.

“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.

“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,” added Andrea Shirk, Rock Lititz President and CEO.

“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.”

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

Future tenants confirmed at Rock Nashville include SoundCheck and Clair Global, the first of over 30 industry vendors and entertainment groups to utilize the new live music and event production space.

Construction began in April 2024, with the campus expected to open its doors in 2025. Details regarding the project timeline, design concepts, and partnership opportunities will be announced in the coming months.
