Really sad what's happened to Buckhead since I was a college student. Used to be the best hub of nightlife in the whole South with pedestrian activity over 30 blocks. Then it died... while developers bought it all up and schemed how to profit off its carcass.  The vision was flawed...unrealistic... and ultimately killed the baby in the bathwater. To use your word, now it's "lifeless". 

What's wrong with Buckhead? I don't know much about it, but I had interviewed for a place there a while back and it seemed like a pretty cool place to live. With a fair bit of upcoming developments, metro station, and lots of shopping/amenities around. What has happened to it, and what about Broadwest might be like that? Developments that aren't working together, or..?

Oh, it's cool... really really 'cool' now... too cool for me... antiseptic cool, imho.  Of course, I'm referring to its transformation from the 'Georgetown of the South' to the 'Rodeo Drive of the South'.  I realize the way it used to be was not sustainable with the upscale demographics evolving as they were (are) around it. But it certainly lost its character in the process. The proper denizens of B'head never liked the vast collection of food and DRINK establishments that sprung up in its former 'downtown' and then up P'tree from the 1960s thru the 90s. But it happened so fast, they really couldn't stop it. Got to a point where my great uncle couldn't even drive from his house on Andrews to the Walgreens on Piedmont one Saturday afternoon. Several high-profile shootings in the late 1990s pretty much sealed the fate of DTBH. And  within 15 years, all those quirky little storefronts, grottos, decks, and beer gardens were gone, replaced by the sleek California style shopping venues we have today.  It reminds me of what's happening to Music Row, granted the latter has far more historical significance than the DTBH of the 1960s (although there were real homegrown, thriving businesses there before that evolution). Mind you, I'm not arguing that it shouldn't have happened... just lamenting another loss of an authentically organic cluster/hub of activity.

I mourn the loss of any grotto.

Been wanting to see that view ever since the office tower got taller than 4-5 floors and the Endeavor was completed. 

Sidetrack... has anyone here eaten at the Crab Fever restaurant?  The sign looks crappy (fish joke) but I love good seafood restaurants that aren't overly fancy.

LOL.. I get that... and a healthy bit of suspicion is always wise... but where you have large enough population and volume to sustain daily fresh seafood deliveries, you can find some really good places far inland.  The better places also get their fish from trusted sources.  I always try to get lots of opinions from people who've eaten at a place. I can't say yet that I have a favorite seafood place in Nashville.

This may be a stupid question to many of you, but b/c I don't hear the term attached to most buildings going up these days it may be assumed as true unless otherwise noted... Is Broadwest... and the other large buildings now LEED compliant? In other words, is LEED certification now the standard that any large project is assumed to meet/surpass?

      Brentwood-based GBT Realty wants to build a two tower (one that could go as high as 20 stories tall) complex near the intersection of West End Ave., Murphy Road, and I-440. To be called 3415 Murphy, it will include 250,000 sq. ft. of Class A office space, 175 hotel rooms, 30,000 sq. ft. of restaurant/retail, and a parking garage on the 1.5 acre site at 3415-3419 Murphy Rd.  The retail/restaurant space would front Murphy Rd., and the hotel/office towers would be toward the back of the lot, along I-440. 

      No renderings as of yet, other than the schematic layout below. Project cost and financing are not clear yet.  Proposed completion date is 2022. Metro Planning Commission is scheduled to review the plan Aug. 9.  The commission's votes are non-binding on Metro Council, where 3 majority votes must occur in order for a requested zoning change to become law.

      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.

      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.
