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

There was a public funding campaign was set up 3-4 years ago by some folks who wanted to buy the Warren House and pay to have it moved in whole the 1 mile north to Marathon Motorworks complex where it would be put on a new foundation.  The  costs for the house and move under normal circumstances was going to be something like $800,000, but then they ran into a further complication when N.E.S. informed them there would be $1 million more in expenses to temporarily subvert all the above ground wiring in the way between the two locations.

One development I am so strongly AGAINST. This home is absolutely gorgeous and the amount of greenery and the mature trees on the property really helps break up the dense environment in Midtown.

Another big loss similar to the one we had where the Virgin is being built. The town needs the texture provided by stylish old houses and mature trees in order to remain visually interesting.

I worked in that old house between December of  1983 and March of 1985 for Bruce Crabtree. 

I'm really torn......Nashville needs to grow,  it needs greater residential densities in already existing neighborhoods and improved transit to address the growth.  But Nashville, unlike, say Louisville, does not have a lot of this old stock left-maybe the city could move it to East Nashville to Edgefield somewhere.

I dunno...just sayin.

I'm torn. Warm memories for that place.....I  worked with good people there.

I always wonder why they use lots with historic and interesting buildings when there are so many surface parking lots, empty lots, fast food, 60s and newer houses or 1 story businesses which are obviously under-utilizing the property, etc.

Because “they” can buy these properties when they go on the market and don’t give a sh*t about preserving the historic buildings on them.     Not being cynical and I agree with your sentiment, but it’s the reality of the market.    There are numerous (well, far fewer now) historic buildings in this city that are not under any historic or conversation zoning.    Many of them are not producing much, if any, income and are owned by people who don’t have the means or desire to renovate and preserve them or to continue to pay the increasing property taxes on them, so when they put them up for sale, there is no shortage of developers willing to pay top dollar.     Unfortunately, most of the time top dollar does not support keeping and renovating the historic building.    

This is why we, many of us, not all, celebrate the rare developer who chooses to preserve the great old buildings we have left.    Like the recently announced proposal to renovate Tuck Hinton’s church building in SoBro.

The residential tower at BroadWest will be over 400 feet.

I just figured they had an exception from way back when or something.

So that would be looking east on Broadway, Hattie B's in the low building at front-center, right? If so, then the buildings will be on an e-w axis (i.e. most views to the south and north... not downtown/west Midtown). Should be about the same height as Skyhouse a block over.

Great spot for a tower. Another surface lot bites the dust.

Notice that parking deck in front of the Palmer Plaza tower. I think as downtown land is going for as much as 10 million an acre that they'll stop doing this and switch to integrated / parking pedestals with the tower above.

One other thing is that construction should start soon. I suspect they will move quickly with demo.

Bye bye Rudy Law building

      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 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.
