North Gulch Gateway (Tennessean site), Phase I: Asurion HQ (10 & 11 stories, 551,000 sq. ft., 9,000 sq. ft. retail, 1,900 car garage, $285 million)

What is being built in front of the Eleven North residential building, right beside the bridge? I was looking at the Asurion Cams and probably thought it was the NES Substation, but it looks to be too close to the Church St. viaduct. Maybe it is and it's an illusion from the camera but it looks vastly closer than the development tracker map portrays it.

Looking great, although I wish we would make our bridge look a little more fancy and pedestrian friendly.

The Broadway viaduct is on the list to be replaced, so hopefully pedestrian improvements are coming.

How would it be possible to remove and replace the viaduct? It would take 3 years right?

If they're going to replace the viaduct, I wish they'd start now.  That way it'd be done by the time the Yards starts hitting stride with the first set of towers finishing up and becoming occupied.

Would have been the perfect time to have done it these last 2 months while Nashville was shut down.  Maybe they'll wait until the next Pandemic and knock it out. :rolleyes:

I do not look for that to happen for a while with all the budget cuts comings and tax revenues down. That will also include a big hit to gas tax collections from where those dollars come.

      The Purpose Hotel, a brainchild of Nashville-based celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, seems to be moving forward.  A rendering has been released of a 17 story tower that would, according to a 2016 article, feature 200-300 rooms with an $80 to 150 million price tag.  A still undisclosed site for the boutique hotel in downtown Nashville has been chosen, and will be announced soon.
      Coward has enlisted Atlanta-based WP Hospitality Group to manage the development, and Hastings Architecture is on board as the designer. 
      Some of the unique aspects of the hotel will be that every room booking will help support a different needy child in the developing world through a sponsorship agency.  Info on each child will be featured in each room. Linens will be sewn by survivors of human trafficking. Art throughout the hotel will feature humanitarian artists. Ethnically sourced coffee in each room. Furniture created by people in need. Internet fees fight human trafficking. Inspiring social films will be featured on some TV channels in each room, as well as curated books with themes about compassion and justice. Soaps and shampoos handmade by women survivors of addiction, violence, and extreme poverty. The lobby will feature a working well for guests to experience sustainable water work.

      Cowart initially launched the concept via a Kickstarter campaign, and raised nearly a million dollars to help fund designs, etc.

      Nashville-based developer C.B. Ragland Co. has submitted plans to Metro regarding a hotel tower proposed for the SoBro site across Second Avenue to the west from its 222 2nd Ave. South Tower.
      The proposed structure will rise at least 20 stories and is expected to offer a minimum of 250 rooms. No renderings available yet.
      The team will go before the Metro Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee on Tuesday, Nov. 7, to seek approval of the concept.
      The tower — which could sit on an L-shaped parking podium — would rise on the 0.5-acre site of the building last home to The Listening Room.
      Discussions are being held with Hyatt properties.

      Both of these stories are currently behind paywalls:

      The property is the oddly shaped teal lot in the center of this screen shot from Smealoglsfree's excellent Development Map:

       
      This is the current 1 story structure of no historic significance sitting on the lot.  It housed the Listening Room Club for the past decade or so. That enterprise has relocated to 4th Ave. South and Elm St.
