Nice addition for West End. I hope it's like the one pictured above and parking is underground.

I believe that one pictured has about 5 levels above ground for parking.

So I have a question about the map... what is the 2020 West End project?  Don't recall that one.

^ ^ ^ 2020 West End was the cluster of restaurants put in a decade ago to replace Fuddruckers, Kenny Rogers Broasted Chicken, etc.

Ah... I know what that is. Thanks. Noticed last time I was up there that TGI Friday's was gone.

Demo of the  4 story medical building has begun.  Looking NE from Hayes Street just west of 21st Ave. North:

What do you mean begun? It looks like it's almost done.

This is probably the first day of demo. The building may already be down as Demo Plus has had a lot of experience tearing things down lately.

The existing building is no more. Moving on to site clearing.

Demo complete.  Looking north from along Hayes Street along the back of Loews Vanderbilt Hotel:

Though I hope they clad the garage portion with something (not zebra stripes, though!)... Leaving that exposed looks sort of odd.

It's par for the course. The Loews, Caterpillar Financial, old and new Baptist, and Hutton car holes all look the same. The Marriott dual-brand is the only one that tried to cover up their reinforced concrete nekkidness.

And in the case of this one, it looks like it was designed in 1965.

The red brick around the garage helps with the look of the "open-ness" quite a bit.  A lot better image.  Of course...if that's just orange paint, then not so good.

Oh, dear heavens. It just got uglier. 1970s ugly.

I seriously doubt that's red brick.   I expect it's paint.    But doesn't matter if it's Italian marble, the garage portion looks like sh*t.   Although, as pointed out, this sits in a vast sea of multi level parking structures, so it will blend in nicely.       

From this image, the hotel looks to be solid stucco in various shades of dirty gray.   Might as well add window unit air conditioners while they're at it.  

I'm not a fan of this design if you can't tell.  <_<

I'm not a fan either...but if the orange part was actually brick...it would be an improvement over that first render.  Either way, though...it's going to be a less-than-palatable hotel design.

It looks like one of those high rise assisted living facilities from that era.

Yes, exactly. Some sort of medical type building. The very kind that most cities have been demolishing in the past 20 years to build something more attractive. This is just plain offensively ugly, from the garage clear up to the roof. Shame on Hyatt for vomiting this up on Nashville.

A vast improvement over what was there. I don't expect a lot of high end architecture from a lower end priced hotel. Again, this structure will be hidden from most angle, at least the ugly portion.
