I can't believe we finally have cranes here. It feels like this has been just a hole for 1/3 of my life.

They've also taken over the northbound lane of 17th as of yesterday afternoon. That means 16th and 17th are both closed to northbound traffic now...

I saw that this morning. Hopefully they can avoid closing all of 17th.

Btw...you have to expect that Broadwest is going to spur more skyscraper growth near the Broad / West End split.  Gotta believe something will happen eventually at that pie slice piece of land at the split where the large billboard is located.  And...this will also put even more pressure on Beaman to consider selling his car lots (though who knows if he'll even consider).  Also have to wonder if the Orbison estate will consider selling the Orbison building on Broadway.  There may be too much sentimental attachment...but that lot is going to eventually be a prime lot.

I'm much, much, much more eager to see those car lots go away and leave the Orbison building alone as long as possible.

As for that pie-shaped lot with The Nashville Sign (online at http://thenashvillesign.com/), the property seems like a waste to be sitting empty, but the sign people surely have a contract that keeps them there for a while, especially considering the upgrades several months ago. That doesn't leave a lot of options.

There are rumors out there that something may happen with that pie-shaped land...but nothing in concrete just yet.

Under those tentative plans, would the sign stay or go? I've kinda grown to like seeing it there.

That sign is a rainmaker for its owners. Whatever they build there I'd find a way to keep the sign integrated.

I hope that the giant screens at the Broadway/West End split stays, but is incorporated onto a new tower. I've always imagined that area could become Nashville's own "Times Square" of sorts. This Broadwest development would certainly help spur that!

Something like this would be awesome!

I always thought it would be cool to put a thin 20-story on Broadway and 1st (where the flag poles are located) and have a massive digital screen there.   Build it in a way where the lower area can still be used for stages for concerts and whatever on Boradway.

Put a massive digital screen at the end of Broadway and put up an image of the road continuing across the river....

With the bridge that ends halfway across the river and that will be the end of the scooter problem. I guess we are saying the same thing.... haha

      Market Street Enterprises announces their newest structure in their Gulch development: Three Thirty Three office building.  It will be a 5 story brick and glass structure featuring 69,000 sq. ft. of office space on top of a first floor primarily made up of 11,000 sq. ft. of retail that will face both Pine and 11th Ave. South.   It will be located at the NW corner of Pine and 11th Ave. North in The Gulch. Construction slated to begin this fall, and a finish is slated for late 2019.

      Adjacent to the building on the north side will be Noble Park, featuring a wooden boardwalk, and a 12 foot high by 42 foot wide water wall.  There will also be a deck that can serve as a stage for performances.

      The architect is Earl Swensson, and Turner will be construction company.

      A 10 & 11 story, 351 unit apartment development is planned by Dinerstein Companies on the former RJ Young site at 805-809 Division St. in The Gulch. No word yet on the construction timetable, nor renderings made available.  Reports are that it will be a contemporary design. Hoar Construction is reportedly the contractor.

      This is a re-configuring of a project that was supposedly going to be done by Hensler, but now will be the same Austin-based Endeavor group that is also doing the 26 story residential/office/Whole Foods on Broadway and 12th Ave. South.

      Here is the Tennessean article on the new proposal that will include a 28 story hotel, 28 story residential, and 21 story office:

      http://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2017/07/26/tower-project-planned-deja-vu-demonbreun-site/427602001/
      Here are the notes from the original concept (along with original renderings).  New renderings on page 2 of this thread on July 26, 2017.

       LA_TN and TheATX did some good snooping and found info online regarding Ray Hensler's proposed mixed-us project on what is commonly referred to as the Deja Vu site (although there are several more properties involved with the nearly full square block). 

      This 1 million square foot mixed-use development encompasses 2.7 acres at the periphery of downtown Nashville in the north Gulch area (see map below) encompassed by Demonbreun on the south, 13th Ave. South/I-40/65 on the west, McGavock on the north, and 12th Ave. South on the east.
      - Phase I will include a 290,000 square foot, 20-story office building with retail uses at the ground level and structured parking above- and below-grade.
      - Phase II will add a 260,000 square foot, 250-room hotel and a 170,000 square foot, 75-unit condo tower to the site.
      - Phase III will add 290,000 square feet of residential in a 25-story, 245-unit tower.
      The complex topography, neighboring buildings and adjacent infrastructure all influenced the master planning and architecture of the project, along with Nashville's form-based code.

      The renderings show structures of 34, 24, and 20 stories...so they don't match up with the Phase I, II, and II mentioned above.
      Here are some older articles of speculation on Hensler's plans and the sale of the properties:

      Here are some renderings of the original Hensler-led proposal which has now been eclipsed. Renderings of the new Endeavor plans in a July 26th post on page 2 of this thread.
