AgroScience Inc. will assist with a landscaped green wall feature that will be part of the exterior. For those unable to get past The Nashville Post paywall, here are a few more renderings:  

New renderings have been posted. And a green element has been added to the facade of the corner hotel (1 Hotel). "the team is now proposing modifications to the project — specifically, the 1 Hote

Once again, I think the word was released (or picked up by media) of the number of floors in the tower section (not counting the parking podium).  You may recall the Omni was publicized as a 21 story hotel.  It is actually 25 including base. Pretty sure that's how the JW Marriott is being described right now too... as it's being touted as 34 floors, but there is a three story base and a rather high cap.

With these towers alongs with JW Marriott, Bridgestone, Westin, and Cambria nearby, I think the First Baptist Church property fronting Demonbreun looks increasingly ripe for a tall proposal. I would love to see a tower taller than 505 there anchoring the SoBro skyline.

That was a question I was trying to answer myself. Guess we will have to wait and see, but if they are in the 20 story range, I will be very, very happy.

Upon closer look at the rendering, the Curio (the shorter of the two) appears to be at least as tall as the Cambria's roof level which would be its 20th level (19 floor building). The Embassy looks to be 4-6 floors taller than the Curio.

You can bet MDHA is panicking right now, trying to find a way to kill this project... 

And the Metro Council will boycott it because they originally said 16 floors and they now believe they've been slighted somehow with more floors.  Less floors is more "Nashville."

I know it's naught but hearty jest and whatnot, but they're the ones who put the MCC there aren't they? Well, if it's successful, more hotel rooms are needed so this should be a good thing to them; to the point where they break out the wine-coolers and dress up in knickers and brawrs and whatever else government/bureaucrat types do when they're happy.

The entire area around MCC is in the expanded 30-story code for CBD (hence, JW Marriott and Westin).  And 30 is just the base level for this code---can go higher with variances. This project will have absolutely no problem passing.

Maybe I'm just prone to cynicism because of the whole Convention Center debacle.

According to the Tennessean piece, the Curio is now being listed as 250 rooms (previously 200).  The combination of The Embassy Suites 400 will then make this neck and neck with theRenaissance for ranking as the second largest hotel structure in downtown at 650 rooms, behind the Omni.

Sooo now with the room change anybody got a guess for the height/stories?

As I stated above:  "If my eyesight doesn't betray me, when counting the pedestal (which appears to be 9 levels of parking on the eastern side, and 8 on the western), the taller/eastern tower is 21 stories (for a grand total of 30), and the lower/western tower (the one on the NE corner of 8th and Demonbreun) is 14 stories (for a grand total of 22)."
