Tony Giarratana is under contract to purchase the .43 acre site at the SE corner of Rosa L. Parks Blvd. and Church St. from Speedwagon Enterprises for an undisclosed price in order to build another apartment tower that he says will have at least 350 units. No further specs yet, but Goettsch Partners will be the architect (just like at 900 Church Tower) and Barge Design Solutions will be involved with engineering. No renderings yet. "Our contract on 801 Church was only recently executed, so our drawings are trailing behind the 900 Church drawings by about nine months," Giarratana said. The tower at 900 Church St. will not have parking — it's not required under the property's downtown code zoning. The tower at 801 Church St. will have a parking garage, for tenants of that building and "to accommodate whatever parking demand we might have at 900 Church," Giarratana said. "Keep in mind, Amazon is not encouraging employees who have a personal automobile. Neither will we be encouraging residents who have a personal automobile," Giarratana said. "This is a new day for Nashville. Given the fact that we don’t have the $5 billion necessary to execute a public transportation plan, it’s going to be incredibly important that the employees at these downtown companies walk to work and don’t introduce their car into the traffic mix at peak times." He added: "We don’t think 'live-work-play' is a cliché. That is exactly the lifestyle we’ve been seeking to create downtown."

The tiny, .21 acre lot on the SE corner of Charlotte Ave. (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.) and 10th Ave. North is going to be developed into another high rise residential project by Tony Giarratana. He is planning to close on the purchase the site from the partnership of Lance Bloom, Charlie Jigarjian and Jonathan Krasner. They had bought the land in 2021 for $2.1 million. They had been rumored to want to build a "pencil tower" of at least 500' on the site. Knowing Giarrantana's style of larger projects, one can safely assume this will be at least 30 stories, and very well could be much taller than that. Currently, a one story, nondescript brick structure that once housed Otis Elevators is on the site, which is nestled next to the T.S.U. Avon Campus structure.

A 25 story/299 ft. residential tower, featuring 360 units, 6,500 sq. ft. of ground level retail, and a 420 capacity garage is being planned by Arizona based Cleveland Associates/Clark Street Holdings on the former sites of Jack in the Box/Taco Bell just west of the Graduate Hotel that is under construction. The apartment tower's parking garage would be accessed from the alley behind the building, "to alleviate traffic conflicts and maintain a continuous, safe, and pedestrian-friendly West End Avenue," CA Ventures wrote in its Metro filing. The group is seeking plan rezoning for the site at an Oct. 25th Metro Planning Commission meeting.
