Coca-Cola Bottling Plant, 1525 Church Street

Known to many as the Old Jim Reed Showroom, this 1920s brick warehouse building was originally part of the Coca Cola Bottling Works. In the 1970s, the soft drink bottling plant was converted for use as Jim Reed’s automobile dealership. Located in Midtown, the building is an excellent example of ornate industrial architecture from the early twentieth century and perhaps Nashville’s last remaining historic soft drink bottling plant. Members of the community are worried that this unique historic landmark could be demolished for new development. In the 1990s, part of the building was converted into a nightclub. The plant building previously appeared on the 2014 Nashville Nine. With downtown high-rise development now extending along the West End-Church Street corridor, the likelihood the building will be demolished is increasing.
