  1. Albion Music Row will be made up of two towers (29 stories/340'/452 units and 20 stories/250'/380 units) as well as ground level retail, 25,000 sq. ft. of multi-purpose green space, and two internal garages w/ total of 570 car capacity at 1503-1517 McGavock St. on a portion of the former Beaman Motors site. Albion has not purchased the 5 parcel site yet from Lee Beaman. It sits on the SW corner of McGavock and 14th Ave. South, just west of the I-40/65 inner belt. They will seek a specific plan rezoning as the property slopes downward towards the east at a 30' drop. They also plan to widen the alley behind the property to allow for improved vehicular access. This will result in no curb cuts being needed on McGavock and the opportunity to add a bike lane along the property. Albion will pursue a LEED Silver designation. Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture is designing the buildings, with Barge Cauthen & Associates serving as civil engineer and Hodgson Douglas as landscape architect.

  2. Looks like they are adding color to the parking deck paint job on the north side. First photo is from two weeks ago, second is from this week so they are actively working on it.

  3. A rendering showing the structure at 33 stories and about 355' (although design details are still not finalized by architect Goettsch Partners), plus info on how the tower's financing package could include a new local tax incentive designed to quickly create housing developments that offer a broader range of rents. Metro's mixed-income PILOT program simplifies the complex affordable-housing financing landscape. Nashville will forgo most of the property taxes on certain new residential developments for 15 years, provided they serve a mix of incomes and include a significant number of units priced below market rate. There is a $3 million annual cap on the discount. "The Mixed-Income PILOT (payment-in-lieu-of-taxes program), with its initial investment of $3 million, not only creates much needed units; this tool also prioritizes housing within economically-integrated communities," said Metro Planning spokesperson Richel Albright. The PILOT program requires participating residential developers to rent a percentage of units to people whose salaries are below the area's median income, which, for example, is $96,700 for a family of four in Nashville. In return, the developer gets a property-tax discount. The tax break is only good on newly created tax revenue from the development, so the deal is designed to only add to Metro's existing streams of income. Developer Tony Giarratana commissioned a rendering of the mixed-income high-rise but hasn't yet finalized design details. His deal with Metro would require that 40% of the building's apartments be rented to people who earn 75% of the area-median income.

  10. From BusinessWire: Opening in late 2024 in Nashville Yards, EVO Entertainment will feature: A 12-screen luxury dine-in cinema Eight lanes of bowling A scratch kitchen and bar Private event spaces State-of-the-art gaming and attractions, including gravity ropes and advanced virtual reality experiences This replaces the previously-proposed nine-screen Regal Cinema which was announced early in the Yards project, although it's been clear that the Regal deal was on shaky ground for a long time. Way back in 2018, AEG admitted that their Regal Cinemas announcement had been premature and that they were talking to "other theater operators." (From the Tennessean). Now we know who they were talking to!

  11. I have renderings of this project. It steps the height back from Woodland Street so that most of the tower portion kind of aligns with the parking garage of Eastside Heights. It’s a very contemporary design. There is a parking garage entrance off of Woodland closest to Eastside Heights where there is also a parking garage entrance. In this location alley access isn’t really feasible, though. It seems possible to me that similar to the new LaQuinta, this parking garage will make spaces unused by hotel guests available as paid public parking for events. The SP allows a greater floor area ratio than the base zoning in order to accommodate the greater height and building volume. The SP will also proving glazing and design guidance facing I-24 snd, by extension, the East Bank and downtown. This project is located within the MDHA East Bank Redevelopment District, which will be expiring in 2025. MDHA’s Envision Cayce Master Plan calls for replacing the CWA apartment buildings between S 4th Street and I-24 with a 12-story building. And so, taken together, these new construction buildings will begin to create a canyon effect along the eastern face I-24 between Shelby and Woodland that will create a gateway effect into East Nashville at both of those interchanges.

  13. I have updated the list of proposed and under construction list. I have also included at the top the completed taller buildings at the top of the list. I will eventually include all of the completed 150' and taller buildings as I get around to it. The fact that Emporis no longer exist is an issue, but I have most of the buildings. The buildings heights are a little different than they were on Emporis as well as that has always been a bone of contention. No one really knows the height for sure and the Germans always had a stick up theirs rears as far as getting anything changed. There are 129 buildings on this list that are 150' or taller that are proposed, under construction, planned, rumored, doubtful. With that being said I will add at least 12 more I know about that I cannot disclose under pain of death, well not really, but these are projects I have seen renderings for, know about, etc. I can't disclose anything about these projects, so don't ask. People can lose their jobs, and no one will talk to me again. That gets the total up to 141 buildings. I am sure there are other buildings being proposed I do not know about. The 12 I know about come from only 4 sources. So, with all of the developers, architects, and property owners out there I am sure there are more. Not all of these buildings are going to happen. Not all of these buildings are going to happen in the next five years. Some it will be a 10-to-15-year buildout and maybe even longer. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Iqd37Ihe1BADeolTxql_bLmt2Cx3ZwmVLC9ks10Q-bc/edit?usp=sharing

  14. A high-rise apartment tower is being planned for the 1960's vintage 1-2 story building at 1427 South Blvd. This is the building that just past the affordable housing senior high-rise/Fallon redevelopment site. 430 units with ground floor retail. I would think that's at least 30 stories on this site. I had heard a rumor that Centrum (same Chicago developer as the apartment project planned down at South/Cleveland/Worthington) was planning a 40-story tower in the area, so this might be that project.

  16. Just sent to [email protected] “Hello Planning Commission, I live off of Chestnut Street in Chestnut Hill where I have lived since 2014. I am less than a mile from where this proposed venue would be located at 446 Chestnut Street. I am writing in to let the commission know that I am 100% in favor of this venue being built. AJ Capital Partners has revitalized a number of buildings in the neighborhood and have been excellent partners with the community the entire time. Please approve this future music venue development. It would be a valuable addition to the neighborhood and to Nashville. Thank you, Paul Chinetti Chestnut Hill resident”

  19. A little bird somewhere told me something was coming so I had my eyes open, and the bird landed in the nest this morning. Thank you, little bird! Exciting project for sure. This map below gets us to around 28 multi-story buildings proposed from about 10 to 45 stories on the west side of the interstate that are confirmed proposals or are in site plans.

  27. Went on a tour of the campus midday today. This amazing building was built with sustainability, human health and well-being in mind. Lots open space outdoors with decks, ponds, outdoor seating areas, typical landscaping and natural light. As this was built in the past few years it was designed with covid in mind, not only just elevators and emergency stairwells are present but also extra cases and escalators were included. All this to provide “multimodal” options to circulate people throughout the building. You’ll see them in the pictures below. Should be finished with the interior in December 2022 and finish landscaping with the main outdoor amenities area being the courtyard in February 2023. Great building, lots of great architecture and engineering went into this building. The construction company Clayco, other subsidiaries (design - LJC), and partners. put a lot of thought into reducing carbon footprint and incorporating life cycle analysis to reduce environmental impacts. They also talked about our canopy and how the buildings footprint was selectively cut and instead clear cutting the building was nestled into the trees and the hillside to sort of blend in with nature and not greatly disrupt the canopy which they noted Charlotte is so proud of. Too bad Centene Corp. didn’t move into it, but whoever does it’s a great office space with fitness center, great outdoor space, kitchen, and other great amenities. Precast parking is nicely wrapped and cool canopy in the entrance! Anyways, here some of the pictures I took:
