New renderings for Phase I and they are quite handsome. The two buildings will be 7 stories each, with an alley running between them. An early 2020 completion is expected.  More behind the Nashvill

This development is large enough that it deserves it's own thread.  Lifestyle Communities will develop another great looking residential community in the Rutledge Hill area covering the better part of

Brickwork/cladding finished on south side, and well underway on west side.  Looking NW from intersection of 2nd Ave. South and Ash St: Looking south along 2nd AVe. South from intersection

^ ^ ^ If their Germantown development is any indicator---which will be mostly brick---they don't skimp on their exteriors (see the renderings below).  Even if this SoBro piece should end up a blend of brick/limestone and  stucco like the Aertson, I think it could look fine.  

That's good to know. My primary concern with the use of stucco on this proposed design is that facade depth and facade separation would be lost without the use of a stone or brick cladding component. It might not seem like much, but the shadow lines created by various reveals, brick courses, etc. go a long way. The elevation that's been provided reminds me a lot of a development soon to start permitting here in San Antonio (sorry for posting a non-related rendering). Limestone and D'Hanis brick are the primary facade elements. If any of you are aware of the Pearl Brewery redevelopment (RioPerla/Silver Ventures), then you know they have very, very deep pockets. This rendering doesn't show the decorative parapets, but they're very similar to those proposed for LC's SoBro project.

3.5 acres across the street is for sale as well. Maybe Lifestyle Communities will buy and make it a solid 2500 apartments in this area!

Not for 23 million.

That's 150/ft. Prices are pretty close to this now, especially for a large tract that a developer can do a lot with...

Hopefully whoever buys it puts in a cool mixed use development on the lots that adds to the area. There will be plenty of apartment goers next door to sell to with all of LC's neighboring development

The Ohio developer with a large mixed-use project in Germantown is moving forward on undertaking an 10 and 6 story development for 2.3 acres on both sides of 3rd Ave. South at Ash Street in the Rutledge Hill section of SoBro.

On Thursday, Nov. 2,  2017 Lifestyle Communities will ask the Metro Planning Department Downtown Code Design Review Committee for approvals related to the two-building project the Columbus-based company hopes to undertake on Third Avenue South near both popular live music venue 3rd & Lindsley and Metro’s recently opened Division Street Extension and Bridge Complete Street Project.

Only this schematic rendering of the 10 story building is currently available.

      This is a massive development taking up 7.16 acres of the 11 acres that the Jim Reed family has owned since 1930. The lot is approximately twice the size of Broadwest and 2/3 the size of  Nashville Yards.  The developer is unknown, but may involve the Reed family. This info came forth in Water and Sewer Availability documents submitted to Metro Water.

      Here's what is being planned:

      -1,500,000 sq. ft. of office space (my guess is 2 towers of 30 stories each)
      - 800 residential units (my guess is two towers of  30 stories each)
      - 350 room hotel (my guess around 20 stories)
      - 150,000 sq. ft. of retail
      - 1,334 seats worth of restaurant space
      - Retaining the 1920s-era former brick Coca Cola plant that was turned into the Reed Chevrolet showroom/warehouse (2 stories, 159,000 sq. ft.)  in the 70s at the SE corner of Church and 16th Ave. North.  Yay!  

      - Not listed, but most assuredly part of the plan would probably be at least 3,000 parking spaces  (even larger than the 7 level underground space at Broadwest.

      My guess is this will be in the  $1 billion cost range.
