Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

Recommended Posts

There was a time that excavating was nearly equal once you factored in what you are putting on the outside of the garage for screening purposes.  Those days are gone.  Side bar, I'm not sure if the city's major underground storm water line is below Margaritaville Hotel or not, but many areas in this part of town simply are not allowed to go below grade.

Why all the above ground parking recently? I work in the SunTrust bldg and our parking is below ground. So why would Eakin have done that when ST was developed, if above ground is cheaper? Was he required to for the ST development for some reason?

**  I'm assuming you are referring to the SunTrust building which is next to Ryman Auditorium  **

In this special case, the SunTrust building was not allowed to have any above-grade parking due to its proximity next to Ryman Auditorium

It's also about money. Excavating for parking costs lots more than simply going up. Underground parking also requires ventilation and dealing with water, which adds cost.

Time (which relates to money) is also a factor. The faster the building opens the faster you can pay loans and make money.

Perhaps if the city put more requirements on the appearance of above ground parking the costs just might work out better.

Don't forget that all the rock and soil have to be properly managed and/or disposed of. With the number of subgrade parking garages now being used/required, this has significantly increased development cost. Just for instance, a site in the Gulch has approximately 90,000 cubic yards of soil and rock to be excavated. This will cost over $3M.

This hotel photographs well from precisely one angle--a characteristic it undoubtedly shares with most of its desired clientele.

You'd think they'd do some kind of art installation on that vast garage wall. I know it will be covered, but in the interim, is that the face they want to show the public.  I'm not saying the Sistine Chapel. But it doesn't disappear being grey.

We've laughed about this hotel but it fills a gap in the southern view down 5th Ave S when standing close to Broadway.

It's the like the architect was a mom giving their kid a "bowl" haircut.

Some new renderings of interior:

Why isn't the lobby floor just a couple inches of sand?.... seems logical for Margaritaville. They already have a giant flip-flop and a beach towel.

Now that you mention it, the tiles look a bit like sand and the stairs look like a boardwalk to a beach.  I'm ready for a change in latitude!
