  1. From the NP: Notes: Skyscraper project planned for SoBro progresses Also: Loans landed for River North, Wedgewood-Houston project WILLIAM WILLIAMS SEP 23, 2021 A grading permit has been applied for related to luxury residential skyscraper 800 Lea proposed for the SoBro roundabout. Nashville-based development company Giarratana is proposing the 45-story building, which would offer about 125 very large residential units. https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/notes-skyscraper-project-planned-for-sobro-progresses/article_

  4. Cary Mack, managing partner at Southwest Value Partners (SWVP) had these items to share today: - There will be 8 residential towers on the site, twice as many as originally planned. - 2 of the residential towers will be underway in the first quarter of 2022. - the railroad park will run under Broadway and be accessible from UnionStation Hotel (which SWVP now owns), and feature some musical elements, but not performance spaces. - The AEG portion (4,000 seat theater, cinema complex, etc.) should also be breaking ground in early 2022. - The parking garage element of the

  5. Ironically there was a study of Southend about a decade (?) ago by the ULI (I think) that highlighted how the lack of design standards was scaring off high-end developers from the submarket because they were concerned about what could get built next door. The DFA and potential Riverside project suggest this may not be the case, but I do think demand for space in Southend is plenty high enough that design standards would do little to reduce the pace of development. [this deck is just as ugly as the Portman deck, but it sits in the most visible portion of the hood. I am extra irritate

  6. Nice looking project, there's a bit of a speed bump built in too, traffic catching some air.

  7. Again this is not a city to city comparison. KHJBurg is always kind enough to share photos of what he has seen around town and he post one pic of Charlotte and gets criticized. Show some respect! Licec You continue to poke the bear! Nashville has a lot more of a tourism draw I would think would be the reason.

  8. I was going to say, this has to be an "designer" from Georgia or Tennessee. And, sure enough, Nashville...Tennessee. Build this crap in Nashville or Atlanta, GA. Get out of Charlotte.

  9. Does Low-Rise priority get density done faster over a wider area? South End will likely never be this, but thought I'd look for images of density without high-rises (See below, first image). Such images may be a relic of the past and infeasible in 2021, but worth a look anyway and perhaps will inspire a slightly different way of thinking among some of you. I know many of you obsessed with towering structures and how they look from the highway, but I'd be happy seeing the remaining lots in center city filled in with images like this as opposed to all the time-intensive and capital-in

  10. Absolutely true. How many of your towers in the last couple years were hotels downtown? I can tell you just a handful here in Charlotte. When I was staying in Bellevue I asked the front desk clerk and he said their occupancy is running 100% on the weekends and very strong during the week. Y'all have a great leisure market and convention market though not sure if that has come back fully yet. Nashville has replaced New Orleans in my mind as place people want to go south and have a good time (with exception of the entire state of Florida)

  13. Little Rock has a great downtown large riverfront park and 2 pedestrian bridges over the Arkansas River. Had been here before and but not along the riverfront. Plus a taller building than even bigger Memphis. Very nice and clean and tidy downtown. Rebuilding I-30 bridge downtown and widening lots of highways around the area too. Nice food hall down by the river and the park.

  15. After some delays, the River North Landings (two 7 story residential structures with 650 units, 200,000 sq. ft. of office/restaurant/retail, and internal garages) is set to break ground in the next few weeks. A $160 million construction loan has been secured. Total cost will be about $260 million. More at NBJ here: https://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/news/2021/09/22/the-landings-construction-start.html

  18. Can the city not offer incentives to reduce parking? They’re shooting themselves (CATS) in the foot with all those parking spots at light rail stops. Oh, and I agree 100%…it looks massively out of scale and unfinished. Blah. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Over here allowing myself to dream the impossible dream...four roundabout towers (perhaps even five) under construction at the same time...and three at NY at the same time...and BOTH locations AT THE SAME TIME! If I drank, I'd need one right about now. Wow. I say, go for it...Wonder Twins powers, activate!!!

  29. I always thought the original plan was too light on residential. They had a couple of underwhelming 18-storiers. I'm glad to see they are cranking up the amount of housing in the Yards.

  30. I’m feeling a little surprised we haven’t heard anything on this site in a bit. Walked around it the other day and noticed they have seemed to have stopped landscaping the lot. I know that’s vague but hopeful it could mean some progress eventually.

  31. I agree about the first two of those, but vaccination is headed towards being *rightfully* mandatory. As I type this my aunt is in a hospital, intubated, and has been given a 20% chance to live. She is unvaccinated. This pandemic is historic and horrific and bears no meaningful resemblance or similarity to overcaution about taking pictures, because photos aren't a contagion. There, I've said my off-topic yet personal piece. Resume.

  32. This is the "Novel" brand name project we were discussing just a few days ago. Wow!! I am VERY impressed by what they are looking to build here. It's absolutely on-par with their other residential projects in Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Houston, Orlando, Phoenix & Washington. I don't think we can overstate just how HUGE this is for RVA -- we're getting our name on a rather exclusive portfolio of very high-status, well recognized "national"-level cities. Crescent is a national developer -- and that is EXACTLY the kind of thing we want. While it's fantastic for local and regional developers

  33. I’m just thankful they’ll never be able to widen South, West/East, or Tryon, so at least when this neighborhood reaches gridlock due to all of these new developments’ parking decks, it will really incentivize taking transit/biking/walking into the neighborhood.

  36. I am a STEM student (Engineering) and I feel slightly offended by this last remark…lol, no but I agree…somewhat. I’d like it if there were more trees on campus. The sun beating down on you during this summer was making a walking trip on the crazy hills on campus a hell walk. I told one of my peers I wanted more trees and they told me there were enough… I said no… We need much more especially lining the sidewalks!! The STEM buildings are great IMO, but I would also like more canopy shading.

  37. Not true. That photo was taken from the airport visit our UP site and see the rest of those buildings. Our uptown skyline is very tight and compact not spread out and it is easy to miss buildings especially a photo taken from 5 miles away. In the last 3 years downtown what we called uptown has these completions: 33 story 632 foot high Bank of America Tower 2019. 26 story 427 foot high Ally Bank Center 2021, 18 story 650 South Tryon Deloitte tower 2020, 22 story JW Marriott hotel 2021, 23 story Honeywell Corporate HQ 2021, Uptown 550 apartment tower 2019, 29 story 384 FNB Tower 20

  38. https://www.instagram.com/p/CUIQQJ5AXNg/?utm_medium=copy_link I'm finding myself increasingly disappointed in this project. The parking deck looks like sht and makes this thing look horribly suburban in what should be a super urban corner. The very basic glass box on top does nothing to salvage it. Hastings is capable of much better work than this.
