The Gulch Projects

Test borings at Gulch Crossing site...

I suspect this concrete and steel building will go up fast. At the forum meet when I mentioned the stick frame of Velocity and Pine Street Lofts, I in NO WAY meant to infer this building would be stick frame! I think Candy Aisles actually presumed I thought Gulch Crossings would be stick frame, and of course it's not. He assured me Gulch Crossings would stand for along time as a concrete and steel reinforced building.

 

Pine Street Lofts and Velocity have some concrete and steel for the retail  portions of the building, but the residential portions are stick frame. Buildings 6 floors and up are always concrete and steel.

Hopefully!  I'm anxious to see what the redesign looks like.  To me, the original design set such a high bar.

The design will go through changes as any project does. Some projects never release a rendering, so I am confident we will have a great building. No worries.



Already doing test borings and still no new rendering yet? 



It cannot be worse than the Hyatt Place.

Well the building is still there and you can't buy beer/water/aspirin/cigarettes so it seems like a loss. I don't remember the CB Ragland signage being as prominent as it is now (though maybe it always has been) so maybe lease just ran out.  

 

Judging from the beer prices at the Turnip Truck-Gulch last time I visited, this was the only location in Nashville that actually might have needed a discount beer and cigarettes store.

The crowd that frequents The Gulch are not looking for an discount anything! The median income for The Gulch  is around $75,000 per year I have read somewhere. Come over to the East side if you want discount beer and cigs. Plenty of people over here looking for a discount.

According to the 2007-2011 American Community Survey the Median Household Income for the two block groups which contain the Gulch are $39k and $44k. Please be aware that this is a 5-year estimate which contains data going back to 2007 - so it may not accurately reflect the income levels of new residents. The two block groups in question also cover areas outside the Gulch, including most of the inner-loop south of Broadway and eastern portions of the Music Row - Broadway - West End corridor.

 

5th & Main - do you have a link to the source of the $75k data?

Just a quick couple of updates here: The Mondrian/12th & Laurel building is about to start on the second floor. The little boutique hotel has some steel work that has brought it to the sidewalk along 12th. And the Vision Hospitality hotel (can't remember brand) is also fronting the street along Division and should begin second floor work in the next month.

I could not imagine how someone making 39-44K could afford to live in one of the buildings in the gulch. I am not sure if any of those cost under 1200 a month to rent.

Fairfield, IIRC.

Laurel House is affordable housing and I believe some percentage of Icon units are price controlled for a period.

Drilling continues. It appears this is underway without a public rendering.

Speaking of Gulch retailers catering to a higher end clientele, this article mentions that a jeweler is moving to the Gulch  http://nashvillepost.com/news/2013/6/11/jeweler_vincent_peach_to_open_gulch_retail_shop.  The article mentions the location as being an historic building at the southwest corner of 12th and Laurel, but I think that they actually mean one of the brick buildings at the southeast corner of 12th and Laurel. 

 

I don't know if this is related at all, but when I did my Gulch walk-through during the June Forum meet that I missed, I observed someone putting out some nice patio/garden furniture in the little space between those brick buildings.  It looke really nice for whomever gets to use it.

Just sharing an image from Saturday morning... the impact this building is going to create on Demonbreun, 12th, 40, Division... it is going to be astounding.

FYI I saw surveying on 12th and Demonbreun (site next to Deja Vu) yesterday as I was driving. Not sure if they were state surveyors doing their thing or maybe something else mentioned for the area.

If this is the parcel on the corner, there is a company out of Florida that owns that now. I would rather see something happen sooner rather than later there for sure. At one point there was supposed to be a hotel for that site. How many hotels can we support here??

 

Hopefully the Eakin project will be underway this time next year.

It was, no idea - but we will be Health & Hotel capital of world, and I agree. He was focusing towards Broadway. Which suddenly makes me think it could have been part of McDonalds restoration which is entirely possible and I didn't think about.

A hotel next to a strip club could certainly support itself.

I may be in the minority here, but I think Nashville can definitely absorb all of these hotels.  I think it could absorb several more as well.
