Hensler-Stiles (26-story residential), Eakin Peabody Plaza (9-story, 280,000 sq. ft. office), & 4 smaller buildings, $265 million, MDHA Trolley Barn sites

No doubt, a "nice" row of Bradford pear trees in that silly strip between the building and Hermitage Avenue.

Oh my god it has a @#%$!ng driveway.  Probably old news to most, but I just noticed that in the renderings.  So because Eakin is too cheap and/or lazy and/or unskilled to design a building that actually fits the damn lot it sits on, Nashville now must have a mini office park from 1983 right in the middle of town.  Gahhhhhh!

Just noticed that after your comment. Where does this go? is there parking under this building that this leads to or is it a surface lot next to the building?? Is there a presentation section for this building anywhere?

Edit:
I noticed in the rendering looking along Peabody St that there seems to be an entrance into some form of parking that'll fill in some of the hill. This begs the question what the entry is for then...

Eakin's Peabody Plaza (9 stories, 280,000 sq. ft.) update: Excavation and core drilling moving along quickly.

A few more details in update on construction of Eakin's Peabody Plaza in today's Tennessean:

- The park on the east side will be .75 acre in size.

- A "green roof" will be planted along a walkable terrace above the standalone lobby at 30 Peabody Street.

-  The project will have similarities to Eakin's 1201 Demonbreun in The Gulch, with wide-open floor plans and a mostly glass exterior.

- A full service restaurant will be part of the plan.

I know not every building can be a 50 story big boy, but only 9, why???

Because MDHA is involved and awarded the property. No doubt there was a "keep it short!" deal.

Well for one thing Eakin does not know how to build tall. JK, they are so conservative it was a stretch for them to even start this thing with out a tenant. They do not normally build on spec.

 

If they had accepted the offers from one of the other companies they could have probably gone as tall as they wanted because MDHA controls the land and to a certain degree how tall. Part of that would go back to Planning though.

Looking at that 222 Building, I just shake my head at how hideously ugly it is. Thing even gave me a headache.

The 222 building should have been taller. It might have looked better.

I disagree. It has grown on me. It seems now to be the only building that stands out from a cityscape of the same glass clad skyscrapers.

The proportions aren't my favorite (read: it could be taller), but I really like the look of it.

It grew on me as well. I do wish it were ~100 ft taller, like almost everyone else, but I think the building is fine.

If you can't tell the difference between One Nashville, AT & T, Pinnacle, Sobro, Bridgestone, JW Marriott then its bemusing. They all have distinctive shapes and features that differ from one another.

No I’m obviously too stupid to do so.

I was referring to the new slew of buildings like 1201 that all seem to have the exact same blue glass without any distinctive features on the curtainwall.

My office is in the area and it shakes the building every time they do blasting here. I explain this project like 10 times a day because of people asking about the blasting ;)
