Tennessean: Nashville Yards developer announces new deal at site of Amazon campus and entertainment district

August 26, 2019

The company building Nashville’s most anticipated development project with an Amazon office campus and an entertainment district announced Monday the latest deal at the site: its first long-term philanthropic commitment.

San Diego-based Southwest Value Partners “made a meaningful financial commitment on a multiyear basis” to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, said Cary Mack, the company’s co-managing partner. He declined to share the amount of the donation.

The deal will bring a series of events to the development for the world’s largest nonprofit breast cancer research organization, which currently has an office in Green Hills. It may also include offices there.

“Our goal is to reduce breast cancer deaths by 50 percent,” said Susan G. Komen CEO Paula Schneider, who recently met with Mack in Nashville. “More than 40,000 people die each year from breast cancer, mostly women.”
