Carey Bringle pays $1.1M for the property, plans a new concept for the fast-changing district.
The owner of the popular Gulch barbecue joint Peg Leg Porker has paid $1.1 million for a property located in the ever-evolving The Nations and is planning a future restaurant for the site.
Carey Bringle now owns the property at 4901 Centennial Blvd., which is home to two buildings. The ownership entity comprises Bringle family members solely and does not include outside investors, Bringle tells the Scene. The seller was an LLC involving local real estate investors Elliott Kyle and McClain Towery, who paid $705,000 for the 0.37-acre property in mid-2017, according to Metro records.
The triangular property, last home to vehicle service shop and garage U.S. Autocraft, is located on the northern fringe of the fast-changing West Nashville district — near the key intersection of 51st Avenue North and Centennial.
Bringle opened Peg Leg Porker in The Gulch in 2013, with the barbecue eatery having since garnered significant praise from customers and culinary aficionados alike. The Bringle family also owns the property from which that restaurant operates, at 903 Gleaves St., having paid $500,000 for it in late 2012, Metro records show.
But a second Peg Leg is not in the works, Bringle says. “There is one Peg Leg Porker, and there will not be another," he explains. "This will be a new concept that will involve smoked meats.”
Bringle says additional details will be released at a later date.
For context related to rising property values in The Nations, two individuals bought the just-sold site in February 2008 for $330,000 before selling to Kyle and Towery in 2017.
