I thought so, too.

They did and are going to sell it, however Jim Caden does not want it now. I think the property will be listed soon. 7-11 bought multiple locations as a package deal and will sell some of them off.

Cost for the Asurion HQ has risen from $252 to $285 million.  Square footage of the complex will now be 551,000 sq. ft., as opposed to 479,000 listed originally.   There will be 9,000 sq. ft. of street level retail, and a 1,000 capacity, 6 level  garage ((some below grade, some above).  There will be sky bridges connecting the two structures *still9 and 8 stories) at the 5th and 7th floors.
Groundbreaking is set for January, 2019, and finish anticipated for 4th quarter of 2021.


One Correction: 3.5/1000 = 1930 spaces.

Here is the link to the Asurion Presentation from inside of the Highwoods links

One thing that confuses me is how this is relating to the gulch greenway. Is it sandwiched between 11th ave and the greenway or does it go over the greenway as shown in smeagolsfree's development map.

Also here is one more rendering released in the presentation as well as a massing study for the two buildings.

A few more renderings.  The first tow are fuller screen than the couple new ones shown above. The third is brand new, and the fourth is a cross section of the floor set-up.

With the diagram, it is now clear that from the 11th Ave. North perspective, one of the buildings is actually 13 stories, and the other is 12.

Nissan HQ

Interesting comparison.  I was thinking more in terms of downtown, but I'm sure while the Nissan HQ out in Cool Springs seems "tall" by comparison the same height in the CBD will seem medium sized at best.  I was guessing an overall height close to the Bennie Dillon, 700 Church St, if not a tad shorter.

For what it's worth, this nine story office building will have more square footage (551,000) than the 29 story, 417' tall Pinnacle office building (520,000).

What could've been.

In terms of an existing building, what is one that has a comparable height?

Sun Trust Plaza on Commerce St, next to the Ryman is 13 stories.

Guess we're still decades away of some developers worrying about the biggest bang for their bucks.  Surely there will come a time when building these suburban-style office buildings in our urban core no longer make sense...right?

I wish it were taller too, but just because it's relatively short doesn't mean it's automatically a suburban style building.  In my opinion, this is relatively cutting edge architecture for Nashville.  So it looks great, and it fits in with it's surroundings appropriately.  I'll put it this way, I like it about as much as one could possibly like a nine story building.  haha

I definitely like the offset stacks...but it still is pretty Cool Springs-ish.  But I do like it.

Gulch Crossings, just up the street, is the best comparison. It is 8 stories above Demonbreun, 11 total

Does anyone understand the plan for the greenway? I think I'm missing something obvious... Why is it even split into two buildings?

This is a guess, but It could be split in two buildings in case they ever need to downsize. It may be because it's a more interesting design than one large block.

      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 site is at lower center of this small photo:

       
      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.

      An 11 story, 136' tall boutique hotel that would include 112 rooms, an "electric gastro pub," a subterranean upscale restaurant/wine cellar, 32,000 sq. ft. fitness facility, 7,000 sq. ft. spa, a boutique performance venue,  screening and writing rooms, rooftop pool/lounge, and more will be located at 10 11th Ave. South, backing up against the CSX tracks at the T intersection of 11th and McGavock St.  Price tag will be $70 million.

      The developer is Chris Hyndman of M Street Entertainment.  Ground breaking will be 4th quarter of this year, and a summer 2020 completion is the goal. Currently the lot is utilized for surface parking.
