Spectrum/Emery Midtown Office Bldg, 18th South & Chet Atkins, 8 stories, 130,000 sq. ft. Mid-2018 targetBy markhollin
Spectrum | Emery Inc. has offered specifics and has released an image for its 18th & Chet office building planned for Music Row. The 10-story building, to anchor the northeast corner of 18th Avenue South and Chet Atkins Place, will span about 130,000 square feet, with Nashville-based Earl Swensson Associates to serve as architect.
Spectrum | Emery has the multi-parcel property under contract and hopes to close on the purchase by August’s end. David Wells, Spectrum | Emery vice president, told NBJ the company expects to ask about $38 per square foot.
An early to mid-2018 completion date is being eyed. --Nashville Post, June 23, 2016
The development is within the light blue square in the center of this screenshot from Smeagolsfree's excellent Nashville Metro Development Map:
A 20 story, 421 unit residential tower that will include ground floor retail and a garage to be called Kenect Nashville is slated for 1815 Division Street in Midtown. This is the former site of the Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers at the T-intersection of Division and 19th Ave. South. No renderings as of yet.
Chicago-based developer Akara Partners will be in charge of the project. Going before Metro Planning on Oct 12 with more specifics.
Here is what Kenect Chicago looks like (just 16 stories):
From the city's development tracker..
Although there is no official announcement, the various arrows are starting to point toward a very possible groundbreaking this summer. But, while the scope of the project itself is not real clear, (12, 15 or 20 stories), the publicly posted rendering at the site shows this 20+ story proposal.
Another old rendering.
And the dramatic, night view older rendering (the most impressive)...
It would sit catty-corner on the same lot as the recently topped out 23 story Twelve/Twelve building, slightly west and north of it as shown in these renderings
The various arrows mentioned include:
A published report in the Tennessean on rampant speculation from the real estate community concerning a July start. Efforts by the proposed contractor to update his estimates, per the Tennessean article. Core drilling activity in the last few days as reported in this forum. A non-denial from the developer regarding the story.
The question about the scale of the building stems from an earlier depiction of a proposed 12 story building (as seen here)...
...and the mention in the Tennessean article that the proposed building is to be a 15 story building. That would explain the need for an updated estimate.
While I hope this is not another West End Summit wild goose chase, I thought it might be time to start a separate topic about it. I suppose we will know more one way or the other soon.
