W HOTEL in the Gulch

I've heard multiple people confirm it's a W... but I am also hearing it is a different architect based out of NYC.  Though the group I've heard may be only doing interiors.  Looking forward to this one.

According to the Tennessean, the project will also include a residential component.  Not sure if it will be a second building or part of the hotel structure. The complex is supposed to take up the entire block on the east side of 12th between Laurel and Pine.

IF it's a tower with 250 hotel rooms...then another tower with 200 condos, neither of those will be really tall (maybe 20ish each?)...but if it's just one tower, that could get up there.  However...with over an acre of land, gotta believe this won't be really tall.

16 stories. Looks to be around 220' including mechanical on roof. I have seen some schematics of the building. Planning on going to MDHA meeting tomorrow and hopefully I will be able to get an idea of exterior materials, but looks to be all glass.

Deleted post! I initially posted a moment after before Ron's comment above which made it immediately irrelevant.

The W in Austin is 36 stories and 476ft tall. That may be comparing apples to oranges as I haven't done anymore research of theirs.

So just one building at 220'?  I guess with 1.2 acres, they'll just spread this out instead of go up.

16 stories would be really, really underwhelming for that site if that is the case.  I would hope for 25 but 20 would still be great.  I know many of you are much more in the "know" than I am, I just would hope it would be more than 16.

If it's only 16, I hope it's a stunning design, even nicer than the Thompson.

According to an updated story in The Tennessean, it will be two 16-story towers (one for the 250-room hotel, and the other for 200 condos or apartments).  Below are some renderings of ground level:

Here is an additional schematic rendering just put up at Nashville Post.  Looks like it will be about 18 stories when you count up from the side of the building lowest on the hillside, and that the hotel and residential sections are adjoined.

That's pretty impressive.  But...I'm thinking the "two" towers may be one large building with the part on the left being residential and the lower portion on the right being the hotel?

It's just one building.

It's actually two buildings having "intimate relations." :o:blush:

I mean, it's Nashville. So I think the answer is pretty obvious.

Hope those guitar players are tied in.  Is that Robert Plant?

I think the wording is a little skewed in the TN article. Looking at the schematics, there is really one building as far as I can tell. It all looks to be connected.

Underwhelming design, especially when you see so many W's that are very unusual and show much creativity.  W's in Dallas and Ft. Lauderdale are much taller and have more than just glass.

This is Nashville!! (in my best 300 the movie voice)  

 

So of course the design is not the most exciting. But I don't really think we can really judge the project based on what we have seen so far with renderings.
