A 34 story residential tower at 900 Church St. is being planned for a Summer 2022 opening by Tony Giarratana on the .31 acre lot at 900 Church St. It should stand at least 400 feet in height. No word on how many units, or if there is a parking garage included. This thin block is now inhabited by the 1 story YMCA of Middle Tennessee admin building, which has no historical significance. It is also just one block east of the twin Amazon towers currently under construction as part of the Nashville Yards development.

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 curved, 45 story, 610' aluminum and glass 800 Lea (working name) will be the latest addition in Tony Giarratana's family of residential towers. It will hug the west side of the Music City Center Roundabout at the confluence of 8th Ave. South, Korean Veterans Blvd, and Lafayette St. It appears there will be about 120 luxury condos, and a 60 capacity underground garage (3 levels). Goettsch Partners is thee architect; Barge Design is handling land planning and engineering. They will go before the MDHA Design Review Committee on Tuesday to seek approval for the exterior form and function of the building, a name for which is not listed in the document submitted to MDHA. Additional info should be coming early next week.
