This is all certainly great news for Nashville. I suspect they will have most of their operations close to if not on their campus. I do remember seeing a rendering of the proposed 31st avenue corridor and there was about a 15 to 20 story building in the rendering on their campus. Coincidence, maybe, but who knows. They are bursting at the seems with portable office space. So in fact they could build something there or on the ONE City Campus.

Good point samsonh.

I suspect they will just build on their existing campus, but that is better than moving to Cool Springs.

Won't happen. Here's why. In the consolidation, they are also going to bundle in Parralon and Sarah Cannon Research. Again, their existing campus cannot support the space they will need. Further the 4th building just off the 31st Ave Connecter is purely the IT department, and they are having power issues with it right now.

I tend to disagree this time Daniel. They may have power issues but that can be solved. As far as their campus goes, thye own all the land between the RR tracks and Charlotte on the east side of the new connector as well as the space they have now. They could put 10 million sq ft there if they needed too if they went high enough. I suspect that is about 20 acres maybe more not to mention the area thay have all their portables on.

Hey. I'm just trying to create a need for them to move. Even though it's fleeting.

Also, the power issues can't be fixed. Another part of the Antioch data center.

Speaking of the data center in HH/Antioch, what's the latest on it? Still planned? Being built? Anyone know or heard?

Yes, they broke ground and the permit was pulled. Hopefully, and fingers crossed, I will be supplying about $4m of their equipment from the racks and Power distribution to data center management software

I am inclined to agree that HCA is likely to build on their existing campus if for no other reason than they already own that land (at least I think they do). Having Centennial Park across the street is also a pretty nice amenity. But if they do stay more or less where they are, I hope that they would build with more frontage toward Charlotte Pike in order to help with that corridor's revitalization. I hate coming down Charlotte and seeing the mass of trailers out back. It kind of makes HCA's campus look like a Metro school campus :(

I couldn't agree more on the "temp" buildings (they've actually been there since 1997, when I had a contract there). They are TACKY!

However, don't expect HCA to build a tower. Healthcare companies get a lot of flack for having luxurious offices, expecially "for profit" healthcare companies... side note: I also did contract work for several "Non Profit" healthcare orgs, and two come to mind that had the most elaborate offices, one has twelve floors in a 40 story office building in downtown Dallas. But it's all about the image, right? And I think the odds are better than 80% that HCA will build a modest "tower" (8-10 stories) on the parking lot where the "trailers" are presently. There is a slim chance that they would decide to go with one of the towers proposed by a third party developer, but they own lots of land... and I believe they are really now wanting to turn their campus toward Charlotte Ave, and yes, partly because of their interest in the land for One C1TY.

I kinda disagree with the above assessments. I think the third party developers have quite a chance here to pull HCA towards the city. Just a hunch, but i wouldn't be shocked for them to do something progressive and smart

About freaking time. Really looking forward to seeing this out of the ground. Anything is better than a lake, but this has been a long time coming. Exciting time for Nashville as we may have a number of 20 plus story buildings under construction next year. This is also a major job anouncement which would be news worthy even without a tower starting. :yahoo::fun::alc::thumbsup::good:

One other thought on this project that may have been a selling point to HCA is that this project is pretty much shovel ready and all they have to do is drain the lake and start pouring the footers. I woudl expect this to move rapidly as Palmer has already got the varience needed and the hole dug.

This may spur a lot of other development right in this area.

You are right. This puts the entire area between WES/CHA and I-40 into play and Demonbreun and Charlotte. There will be a land rush IMO to get projects up and going.

No. I believe these are a back-office consolidation of jobs from around the country and expansion and relocation of a cancer treatment/research subsidiary.

      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.

      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:
