Listing of the full-service broadcast and video production facility likely to attract

health care, technology, entertainment industries


NorthStar Studios, the largest full-service broadcast and video production facility of its kind in the Southeast, is now on the market. The 16-acre property is located north of downtown on Dickerson Pike.

NorthStar Studios has provided studio production support for elite artists and entertainers like Faith Hill, Dolly Parton, The Gaithers, Carrie Underwood, Amy Grant and Vince Gill. The studio has also hosted media tours, commercials, infomercials, television shows, streamed events and educational series. Recent NorthStar clients include ABC/Disney, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, BBC, E! Entertainment and Discovery Channel.

“NorthStar Studios is a world-class broadcast, technology and video production facility,” said Grant Barbre, president of NorthStar Studios. “It is rare to find this combination of resources under one roof. Studios, HD broadcast control rooms, post-production and edit suites, c-band and ku-band satellite dishes, and fiber and Internet streaming capabilities, along with redundant power support systems – all of those and a lot more are part of the NorthStar Studios campus.”

One of the most distinctive features of the 16-acre, 120,000-square-foot production facility – which will be a total asset sale – is that it includes a diverse mix of content distribution platforms –  including “teleport” capabilities, a fiber optic cable system, Internet streaming capabilities and satellite transmission services, with domestic and international FCC licensure.

“The economic impact of this listing will be felt beyond Nashville,” said Nate Greene, executive vice president and co-founder of Colliers International. “This is a turnkey facility for a top-tier company in the health care, technology or entertainment industry. At 16 acres, it will also be attractive to developers. It has the potential to bring big change to our city and our region.”
