Downtown…about how many more feet do you think it will be above the current height of the core?

If indeed the central core is at the 40th floor level, according to the construction documents, there would be 46'-2" to go.. But with the normal core construction being concrete, it would be extraordinarily unusual for the remainder of the fire protected height to be of a different construction type.  If the concrete core is actually topped out, it would be at the level of the roof.  Stairs and elevator enclosures would virtually always extend to the roof level for continuity of fire protection, so if this actually is the top of the concrete, then there is only 5 of 6 feet of the mechanical screen to go above it.  So if the concrete core is really at the 40th floor level, they must have some issue for delaying two additional floors (the 40th and one mechanical floor).  Sorry to rain on the parade if this is the final core height in the photo.

I’m not sure if anyone is 100% on this being the top.

I may have miscounted or be completely mistaken, but I think the rising section is currently covering the 40th floor of the elevator core, which would mean that the current top of the core would be the ceiling of the 40th floor, leaving an additional 25’ or so of height for the mechanical floor and the additional screening.

Great pictures, it appears that the core still has openings for elevator doors above the floor they are now Starting on. So is there still one or two floors to go. Then the screening for the mechanicals on roof?

      Zach Liff's DZL Management along with partner developer Draper &  Kramer have unveiled ambitious plans for the Cummins Station area properties that cover 13 acres, most of which are surface lots surrounding the iconic massive office space converted from a railroad warehouse.

      Eventually, it could end up being as many as 8 towers. The initial foray will be a series of 31-34 story towers along the east side of the CSX tracks in the Gulch, bordered by Demonbreun St. on the north and Cannery Row on the south.

      Smith Gee Studios and Solomon/Cordwell/Buenz will be the architects.

      A Set. 2019 groundbreaking is planned for Tower 1. 

      No price tag has been put on the project. 

      More behind the Nashville Post paywall here:

      And behind theNBJ paywall here:

      https://www.salsarestaurantnashville.com/

      This is the Phase 1 Tower, which will be just to the southeast  of Cummins Station, hugging the CSX tracks to the west, and just to the northeast of the proposed Gulch Pedestrian Bridge on the west side of the intersection of 10th Ave. South and Lea Ave.  It will be 31 stories/369' tall, with 333 residential units, 10,200 sq. ft. of ground level retail, and a 360 capacity parking in a garage within a 7 story pedestal.




       
       
       

       






      Tower 2 will be nearly a twin of Tower 1, just to the south,  with its southern border the Cannery Row area.  It will also be residential in focus at 31 stories with a 360 capacity garage.

      Towers 3 & 4 will each be 34 stories.  #3 will feature a hotel as well as residential, and #4 will be residential.  Each will feature garages that will hold a minimum of 420 cars. 
      Future phases will include at least 2 towers of undetermined size on the Union Station Railroad Shed site (currently surface parking), at least one tower on the surface lot at SE corner of Demonbruen and 10th Ave. South, and a tower at the apex of Lea Ave. and Palmer Place, immediately to the NW of the 30 story 805 Lea residential tower about to get underway by another developer.  In total, the plan is for at least 8 towers, as well as a few shorter structures.
