Why would it kill that project. This one is mixed use with residential and hotel. The Embassy is all hotel serving the convention market and this one would serve the midtown market and overflow of the convention market.

So would this effectively kill the Curio-Embassy Suites project... as if it were still alive?  Still can't believe they can't get started on a project that large and right across from MCC! 

why would it kill Curio-Embassy?

In all fairness, if Nashville can manage 2 Tapestry hotels, I'm sure it can manage 2 Curio hotels.

Agreed. The two locations are completely different in who they’re attracting. 8th and demonbreun is obviously for MCC/lower broad travelers while midtown can be downtown/business/Vanderbilt/music industry/etc. If the corporate heads decide both areas are areas where a Curio would thrive they won’t cancel one just because of relative geographic proximity. Especially considering they could just be giving a prime location to a competitor.

As I recall, the proposed Midtown hotel was always labeled as a Curio, overlapping with ES/Curio's design and branding process. So all were aware of the situation.

It may be time to think of Midtown as it's own unique city which is serving a different market and developing it's own identity. Each Curio will serve a different loyal customer base with different requirements.

Never stayed at one, but I read up on them. They are Hilton's "individualistic" (i.e boutique) flag. More like a collection than a standard brand.

No there is no mention of either or even a hotel brand. No one is talking right now as this all just broke yesterday. I think they are waiting to see if they can get the approval for the new height and such for the project before anything moves forward, then more details will emerge. It is scheduled on the Jan 10th Planning meeting.

^ parking garage under this or will that be without?

There's some amount of parking, you can see the ramp in the northeast corner (opening to the north-south alley).

OK, required parking is 429 spaces for combined hotel and residences and they are going to have a total of 483 spaces. They are only requiring .75 spaces for each hotel room now due to new formulas.

Does anyone have info or a link on this? I'm interested in who manages that formula and how it's updated.

I am sure if you contact planning they can share but it has to do with residents staying at the hotel, valet, ride sharing services. Its aformula that I am sure changes by the year and is different for the hotel than it is for the residential portion.

I am very happy to see development 99% of the time, but this is an exception. This is a beautiful house, and I would much rather see someone restore it. There are plenty of empty parking lots or ugly buildings to tear down for this project. Sad to see buildings like this (and former Welch College for example) get torn down for a probable unmemorable building. Takes away from Nashville's beauty.

It indeed a fine house architecturally, but I am not particularly  dismayed to see it go.  The time to preserve it  had passed long ago and it remains disconnected from any historic context it once had.  It is an isolated remnant which brings to mind the final scene in 'Batteries Not Included' a historic brownstone wedged between Trumpian scaled towers.  Well not that extreme maybe.  I was far more saddened when the Pricher-Hamilton House at the Virgin Hotel site was unexpectedly  demolished.  It was quite a blow to lose such an anchor to Music Row and heralded the loss of more of the Row to follow.

This passed tonight on final... construction will begin soon. The Rudy Firm house (Warren House) will fall if no funds ($800K) are raised to move her.  26 (355 apartments) & 16 (Hotel) towers separated by a courtyard.

I hope they can save the house.  I thought they were going to move it to Marathon Motorworks?

      Nashville-based developer C.B. Ragland Co. has submitted plans to Metro regarding a hotel tower proposed for the SoBro site across Second Avenue to the west from its 222 2nd Ave. South Tower.
      The proposed structure will rise at least 20 stories and is expected to offer a minimum of 250 rooms. No renderings available yet.
      The team will go before the Metro Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee on Tuesday, Nov. 7, to seek approval of the concept.
      The tower — which could sit on an L-shaped parking podium — would rise on the 0.5-acre site of the building last home to The Listening Room.
      Discussions are being held with Hyatt properties.

      Both of these stories are currently behind paywalls:

      The site is at lower center of this small photo:

       
      The property is the oddly shaped teal lot in the center of this screen shot from Smealoglsfree's excellent Development Map:

       
      This is the current 1 story structure of no historic significance sitting on the lot.  It housed the Listening Room Club for the past decade or so. That enterprise has relocated to 4th Ave. South and Elm St.

      Greystar Real Estate of Charleston, SC is planning a 16 story apartment tower with 300 units at 908 Division Street in the Gulch.  The approx. 1/2 acre site currently has a nondescript, 1 story structure that was most recently home to the Habitat forHumanity ReStore outlet.
      Greystar folks will go before Metro Planning on Sept. 13 to request current zoning (max. of 10 stories) be modified, and allow their final site plan to be approved. Hopefully they will be allowed the extra 6 stories with LEED certification for the additional parking.
      This lot is just to the east of the Yazoo Brewing site that  just had a Hilton Canopy Hotel announced (no size or amount of rooms notated yet) last week.
