An SP for this site (501 Crutcher) as "approved with conditions" on 08/01 by Planning and now moves on to Council. No drawings or renderings were included in the plans filed with the city, but we do have some design parameters that any development will need to follow.

  1. The uses allowed under this Specific Plan will be all those allowed under MUG-A-NS of the Metro Nashville Zoning Code.
  2. The maximum height shall be 6 stories or 90 feet with no step-back required.
  3. Use of the rooftop shall be allowed including elevated access points for stairs or elevators.
  4. Short term rental shall be prohibited.
  5. Architectural standards shall be as follows:
    • Building façades fronting a street shall provide a minimum of one principal entrance (doorway) and a minimum of 15% glazing.
    • Windows shall be vertically oriented at a ratio of 1.5:1 or greater, except for dormers.
    • Building facades shall be constructed of brick, brick veneer, stone, cast stone, cementitious siding, glass, or materials substantially similar in form and function, unless otherwise approved on detailed building elevations included with the preliminary SP.
    • Porches shall provide a minimum of six feet of depth.
    • A raised foundation of 18”- 36” is required for all residential structures.
  6. South Fifth Street along the frontage of the property to be constructed to provide 45 feet of right-of-way measured from the centerline to the property line (one foot more than the 44 feet required in the MCSP).
  7. Structured parking shall be lined with active uses or screening that closely mimics active uses.
  8. Unless noted otherwise herein, the property shall be subject to the standards, regulations and requirements of the MUG-A zoning district as of the date of the applicable request or application.

550 is alot of units, but I don't think is out of the realm of possibility.

It’s especially a lot considering they are condos. It’s great to hear though

Very true. That is if it actually stays that way. There was nothing in the SP that stated it has to actually be condos. Condos are quite complex to build and have serious legal ramifications which make them quite complex.

ZMX Inc. is planning a 2 & 3 story development with 4 structures featuring 168 apts. and retail space at 905-907 East Trinity Lane and 3013-15 Ambrose Ave. They have spent a combined $4 million on the parcels on which they plan to start construction in early 2023. FirstBank has supplied a $5.925 million loan to get things started. Catalyst Design is in charge of engineering and land planning. No renderings available yet.

The hundreds of units underway around this intersection (and future hundreds likely to come) mean that we’re about to need two things: a crosstown bus route on Trinity, from Gallatin Pike to Clarksville Pike; and a passenger station on the future heavy rail commuter route where the tracks go over Trinity.

I get the feeling that Trinity Ln is going to be a traffic nightmare in the not-too-distant future. It's almost like there's no plan for growth. I mean it's exactly like there's no plan for growth

I have been saying this for some time. That is why I think The Riverside project is in the wrong place. There is no traffic infrastructure in place to handle the dynamics of the project.  Sort of like putting the MLB stadium at TSU. These things are not being thought out by the developers or Metro in their infinite wisdom. Oh, I forgot there is no infinite wisdom nor any wisdom at all at Metro. Seems as if all they want is the mega growth in areas that are not suited for that type of growth right now. 

The developers behind this project and the MLB project have one thing in common.... neither are developers. Both are amateurs with respect to what they want to do and where they want to do it. Neither group as developed some much as an outhouse.

Congress passed an infrastructure bill last fall. Is there any public listing of which projects in Davidson (Hamilton et.al.) County are being funded by that?  

The administration here in TN dedicated this funding to grants for water infrastructure improvements. It looks like the grant process is ongoing, but you can find info about it at ARP (tn.gov).

I don't see a list of granted projects, but you can find info on reported needs for all types of infrastructure projects, including water infrastructure, by county at Data Explorer (tn.gov) and Building Tennessee's Tomorrow 2020-2025 (tn.gov).

@Bos2Nash do you think this is a sell/lease back situation? I’ve heard Lincoln is looking around metro for space for a new campus. It’s also interesting that the press release mentions the buyer needing to go through rezoning. I wouldn’t think that would be necessary if this was a sell/lease situation like their Denver campus.

I know they are not renewing their lease for their dorms along Douglas.

Sean Parker was asked on the East Hill FB Page about delays and what neighbors that support (or don't support) this deal can do to voice their opinions. His response:

They have not even filed a zoning change application yet. There will be community meetings where residents can learn about the plan and offer feedback. The most important opportunity will be the Planning Commission hearing which is not yet scheduled. They have to file a zoning change application first.

Alta City Side will be a 3 story, 368 unit residential project on about 4 acres at 1301 Lebanon Pike to be developed by Wood Partners.  They just purchased the land for $9.76 million from Gray Line Tennessee, which has recently relocated. They also landed a $55.37 million load from Pinnacle Bank for the construction. Plans are for the development to start by year's end and be fully complete by summer of 2024.

Hmmm, obviously this means they are going for some form of zoning change or at least a BZA type request. Looking at the zoning of MUG-A (current zoning) which allows 7 stories in 105' tall, but also has a cap of 3.0 in a Floor-to-Area ratio. Maybe they would like to get up to a 5.0 FAR which would require an SP or a rezone to MUI-A (that would be a decent lift on Gallatin). It may also be a setback request as MUG-A requires a step-back at 5 floors, but with the site being on a pretty big topographic change, that can impact a development alot (I am dealing with right now in another part of town), so they may be asking for a bit of reprieve from the step-back on one of the frontages.

@bwithers1 can you provide some insight in what at least the ask is (not asking for provide project details) 

@Bos2NashThe potential ask is for a sky control plane special exception to allow greater height than base zoning allows on a portion of the site.
