  1. Attempted to model the building based on the initial rendering and the description a couple of pages back. No clue how close this is, but a tower of this scale will definitely make an impact. Very curious about what the Carson side of the site looks like given that it faces townhomes.

  2. I don’t know if I got pics of everything under construction (Nashville needs to calm down…LOL) but I got a lot. I’m not sure what the vast majority of these projects are so I decided to make a thread of all of the ones I took pics of instead of spending hours trying to figure out what each one is. Click on each pic then double click it for higher quality. Not much editing has been done otherwise. Enjoy! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25.

  3. Happy Friday, UP! I’m a longtime lurker, first-time poster. Here is a view of the Yards from my place downtown. I think of these developments as my “front yard,” so I have been following their progress closely and learning so much from this forum in the process. The view from this place has changed dramatically in the past three years and there is much more coming.

  4. I was going to try and work on this more this weekend and realize that this is a first effort. This is a rendition of future and under construction towers in the downtown and possible East Bank area. I was going to try and label them, but I have been rather busy this weekend and have also been trying to take a bit of a break.as well. Iwas also going to use actual renderings, however is time consuming to get the actual renderings cut out and also the position of the towers do not exactly fit at the angle I want them just yet. That will be coming later. Remember this is a first effort and a big SHOUT OUT to nissantitanville for the help on Gimp! I have some of the towers a little off scale and the angle of the shot made some of the building appears to be crooked and other to be level. It is a work in progress. I probably left a few off. About 10 to 12 of the below are under construction with about 20 slated to start in the next 6 months or so.

  5. I have known of this for 2 years prior to Covid and kept it quiet with a few hints. Last week I found a website from the developer with this information on it and these renderings. More information should come out this week. From my undisclosed coastal NC location I present this and from the now hidden webpage: ""Meet Charlotte’s newest 31-story, mixed-use community combining nearly 565,000 square feet of Class A office space, a 200-key hotel, 100 premier multifamily units, and 10,000 square feet of activated retail, anchored by an 8,000 square foot amenity terrace."" Last photos are of the site I took a week or so ago. I hope Riverside's and this Crescent project are going up at the same time. #CharlotteRising and #Southend especially #Rising tall. Crescent does great work as we have seen with their Ally Bank Center, their various apartment complexes and even their renovation at One Independence Center. Oh the site is reappearing after it disappeared. https://www.carsonse.com/

  6. drive by earlier in the week. Oh yeah I am tired of holding back this rendering. if this is not the look of this tower I will buy 3 dozen Dunkin Donuts and bring them to the next UP meetup walk and y'all know I don't like those cake-y donuts and I prefer the sweet Southern melt in your mouth doughnuts of KK. Notice the balconies at least 3 levels and it has more in common with Legacy 2 Deloitte than the BOAT. Happy weekend walk a greenway nearest you! Charlotte Rising! now with a rendering.

  7. Just for fun... Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I got a little impatient and wanted to see what all these projects might look like added to our skyline. So i had a little fun in Google Earth Pro. I could only do straight vertical lines and the buildings are in no way accurate as far as shape, but they are fairly accurate in height for the most part. I frequently browse Smeags development map and it was the inspiration for this rough draft of a 3D version. It doesn't have all projects and my key (see below) probably isn't totally accurate, but I thought I'd share what i have so far. I took some creative liberties on a few, but again, it's just for fun. See some screen shots i took below. Red - Under Construction Blue - Proposed Purple - Planning Yellow - stalled or dead or who knows.

  9. I will say we have a lot of talented folks on the forum. We have a lot of professionals and like Robert, hobbyist like Brichar4 doing the wiki page. This does not mention all of the other professionals we have on the board that are architects and engineers and the like. I have said it before and will say it again, we have come a long way from where we were in 2005 from a small group of enthusiasts to the group we have become now. The other moderators with their contributions have added so much to the board as well and I would put this board up against any discussion forum in the country as far as knowledge and also knowing their city. I dare say the folks on this board know the history or Nashville better than most know the history of their cities thanks to Pete (MidTenn1), Randy (Baronakim) to name a few. Rookzie with his knowledge of the railroads. Guys I could go on and fail to mention all of the folks that contribute to the board and the folks that are no longer with us that were major players here. TitanHog is back after a hiatus dealing with personal family loss, but her humor is not lost on us. Neither is From Park Avenue LOL! To all of our old-timers that have been with us from the start... you know who you are we got the boom we were waiting on! We are truly fortunate to have who we have here and thank you to all from myself. I did not know where to do this, so I just wanted to create a thread to thank you folks. This way you guys can call out a lot of folks that have stepped up to the plate. Also please do not feel left out if you get left out because every member is valued here. Sometimes we just forget to say thank you because there are so many of you. A personal thank you to Mark (markhollin), Taylor (downtownresident), William (EastSideUrbanite) who keep me on my toes, and contribute so much to the forum that you guys do not know about, and to Craig (Bos2Nash) whose knowledge make me feel small. Thanks to Bob (LA-TN) for getting the technical stuff taken care of and to Daniel (dmillsphoto) for sticking around even though he left us high and dry and moved to Columbus. Come back soon. Even if I have mentioned someone, please give them another slap on the back. I know I have failed to mention a lot of you Like John. He sometimes reads the forum and sometimes he does not. Your sarcasm and humor are missed. Again, I know I have forgotten to mention some of you because I am getting old, and my brain is turning to crap. I will leave it to you guys to add to this. This is your time to shine.

  12. Ray Hensler says he will finalize the $16 million purchase of the 4.47 acre Peabody Union site from MDHA by late February, and ground breaking should occur in April.Once approved for 32 stories, the main tower will now be 27 floors and will include 354 residential units. The adjoining Class A office structure will be 6 floors with 251,000 sq. ft. of office space. Both buildings will have a cumulative 33,000 sq. ft. of ground level retail. No word on how many parking spaces will be in the underground/internal garage. A fall of 2024 completion date is planned. New renderings below.

  13. Found some additional images and diagrams via a document uploaded to Development tracker. Source: http://maps.nashville.gov/MPC/2022DTC-006-001_plan.pdf Some diagrams, first the Church Street level plan: A bit of a missed opportunity to tie into Platform Way, but the landscaped barrier blocking the Porte Cochere will be nice. 10th Ave N level plan: Rendering of the Church Street level: Landscape plan of Church Street level with concept imagery: Some full building diagrams. Appears to be a slight taper of the "crown": Another full building diagram showing the different uses. I'd imagine the condos are on top, starting on the 41st floor, with a private amenity / mechanical space on the 40th floor. Also to note, the YMCA addition will be 9 stories and 110' feet tall. Based on this, the condos will have sight-lines that will start above the Prime residential tower, giving those owners truly un-blocked views: Finally, high-res versions of the renderings we already have. Love the neighborhood view:

  14. 14th & Hynes will be a 1.28 acre, dual tower project of 40 stories, 480', (residential--unknown units) and 36 stories, 435', (hotel/condo with unknown rooms/units), sharing ground level retail, underground/structured parking. The address is 207-225 14th Ave. North. At one time this site was being considered for a 15 story Comfort Inn Hotel. Roers Capital is the developer. They are also planning the double 30 story tower project at 15th Ave. North and Church St. just to the west. STG is the architect; Kimley-Horn will handle land planning and engineering. Roers has the site under contract with Aurora Enterprises and Dean Dairy Fluid. It is currently a gravel surface lot. The team will go before the Metro Planning Commission on Dec. 8 to request a rezoning to specific plan from mixed-used.

  15. The 3 acre site formerly home to Country Delite Dairy at 1401 Church St. and facing the I-40/65 inner belt to the east is planned for a 3 tower mixed-use project (45, 35, and 30 stories plus a 7 story structure). The developer is CCB Nashville Developments, which is affiliated with Bosa Properties, a major developer out of Vancouver. Hastings Architecture will oversee design; Civil Design will be in charge of land-planning and engineering; HDLA will do landscape architecture; KCI Technologies will be involved with engineering and construction consultation. The team has filed a specific plan application with Metro Planning, with the document simply referencing a “mixed-use development.” The site is bordered Church, Grundy Street and 14th and 15th avenues north. The application notes 30-story, 35-story and 45-story buildings. The 30-floor building will front Church Street, with the 35-floor structure to address 15th Avenue and the 45-floor tower to face Grundy Street. According to multiple sources, CCB Nashville Developments — companies affiliated with which have developed sites with high-rises in greater Seattle and Vancouver — has the property under contact with owner Dairy Farmers of America (DFA). The property CCB Nashville Developments seeks to acquire overlooks the inner-interstate loop and sold in May 2020 for nearly $30.4 million to DFA, a dairy co-operative.

  16. The density in midtown hugging the loop and along Broadway (if all built) seems to be much greater than Nashville Yards or any part of the CBD for that matter. Here’s some Screenshots. Granted the purple is still a big question mark. 1401 Church in orange.

  17. Amazing mural recently complete on the big wall next to the Ervin building by Eva Crawford and Hilary Siber! Worth checking out. Too big to capture in one or two photos. Hard to park near there, but I found a spot off the road and was able to grab some photos. It's MASSIVE! Love this for the east side.

  24. Had to work Uptown yesterday. So I went up to the 31st floor of 400 South Tryon and got a few pictures from a window during a break. Eh, not a bad pic with some glare. It's really stunning to see this building up close higher up. I really love the color of the glass when it's cloudy.

  26. If I was as rich and salty as David Tepper, I would 100% abandon the entire SC project. I'd throw a ridiculous amount of money at the bickering Brookhill parties, and then build the new facilities there. Throw in some truly affordable housing + a community center at the new site - and watch for the hero's welcome. I would love for Tepper to then rename the team Charlotte Panthers, and then yank those 2 SC flags off the top of our stadium. I'm so tired of the two states one team thing... And SC flags flying over NC. And yes I am petty - and I hope Tepper is too! I choose to live in Charlotte, invest in Charlotte, and be a part of the community in Charlotte. I want Charlotte and its citizens to be successful. York County and frankly any of the communities/residents over the line are siphoning away tax revenue while continuing to use our city's infrastructure and benefit from our economy. I don't think we should be actively rewarding SC at all for taking away jobs or residents. I'm glad this is blowing up in SC's face. I don't understand how Tepper looks bad in any of this - despite reading a lot of mixed opinions about his handling. Alienate all of South Carolina! In fact, I like the guy more for playing hardball. SI SE PUEDE NORTH CAROLINA!!!

  30. Downtown Code Design Review Committee is going to consider all these final design concepts for AEG, Amazon Three (1001 Church), Pinnacle Tower, and the three residential towers at its March 3rd meeting. The AEG portion will cover 2.46 million sq. ft., including: - 12 story, 456,000 sq. ft. building with a movie theater, 2nd level big box store, and ground floor retail. - The 4,000 capacity/125,800 sq. ft. event facility. - The two residential towers along Commerce St. will be 34 and 35 stories with a collective 696 units. - There will be a pedestrian "paseo" running between all 4 structures lined with outdoor seating, dining and landscaping. - The below grade parking garage beneath all of AEG will be 5 levels with 2,086 spaces. AEG's project team includes architects Gresham Smith and HOK; civil engineer RaganSmith Associates; landscape architect Hoerr Schaudt; and Dallas-based multifamily developer StreetLights Residential. Not many new details were released today on 1001 Church or Pinnacle Tower, but these latest renderings show them to be 45 and 36 stories, respectively. The 10th Ave. North residential Tower still looks to be 38 stories. The final diagram below shows: - 1001 Church will have will have a 9 level garage above grad with 591 parking spots, 5 levels below grade with 190 spots for a total of 781 spaces. - Pinnacle Tower will have 9 levels of parking above grade with 591 spots, and 5 levels below grade with 811 for a total of 1,402 spaces. - 10th Ave. North Residential Tower will have 8 levels of parking above grade with 543 spots, and 3 levels below grade with 521 spots for a total of 1,064 spaces. - The grand total of parking spaces across the entire campus will be 7,511 when completed in 2025. - The two future parcels (09B1 and 09B2, the eastern edge of the site along 9th Ave. North) are shown to potentially be 48 and 46 stories, respectively.

  35. When the project starts delivering in 2025-26, you can expect around: • 850,000 square-feet of office • Up to 650 multifamily units • Plenty of retail and a possible hotel. What I like about it: • Mind the Gap: This building is the latest project to fill the noticeable gap between @uptown.clt and South End. • An out-of-the-box design for a very ambitious building by @goettschpartners • That companies are still incredibly bullish on Charlotte for investment. • Tons of public open space and retail. from CLT Development
