The Metropolitan Nashville Historical Commission has recognized Nashville-based Feltus Hawkins Design with a Preservation Award for outstanding architectural and restoration work related to the recently opened Noelle Hotel.

Built in 1929 as one of the city’s luxury hotels, the structure stands at the entrance to Printer’s Alley and served as a bank and an office building before the four-year rehabilitation and restoration process yielded a reinvention as a hotel.

“We really dug into the building’s past and the colorful history of the downtown area to create a boutique hotel that is viable in today’s economy, but also forges an emotional tie with the past,” David Hawkins, FH Design principal and architect of record for the Noelle Hotel restoration, said in the release.

The renovation of the building included preserving the entrance, lobby, mezzanine and exterior. The firm also designed the guestrooms, rooftop bar and all public spaces. The effort preserved the double-height lobby intact with its terrazzo floors, pink marble stairs, marble columns and walls, and brass railings.

The rehabilitation began in 2014 and included a modern addition Hawkins designed. The 11-story addition of floor-to-ceiling glass and aluminum façade wraps 63 new guest rooms on the historic hotel’s east side overlooking Printer’s Alley and the Cumberland River.

Many of the joints on Broadway are not really hosting “country” bands. Lots of very loud rock band cover tunes blaring out into the streets! I wish we’d get more actual country/bluegrass/americana music out there.

Was speaking to a local brewer who deals with all of the bars/restaurants downtown.  He blew me away when he said the several dozen bars along Broadway, and a few along 2nd and 3rd Avenues annually generate between $12 and $25 MILLION in gross sales EACH.  Yowzers!  

I ve heard similar numbers that just blow other bar owners outside down town away.

super random, but, I really think the Olmsted came out as a really handsome building....noticed that while out and about with my wife this weekend.

My girlfriend absolutely loves that building. I feel sorry for the residents though, because it will be surrounded by 4 hotels. Talk about not a real cohesive neighborhood

It’s going to get there. That neighborhood is a work in progress but it’s going to be a really cool mixed-use neighborhood in 10 years or so. With a higher percentage of hotel rooms than most neighborhoods, of course.

Something like this needs to go up at the 8th/KVB roundabout.

Only problem is there are three parcels left on the round about and one is The Mainland Tower, one is a Tony lot, and the other is the AME publishing house, and I may have heard something about what may go there,  Oh and Demitrius Kalodemos lot. Three more highrises i will bet.
