Thanks for the invitation.   You meet monthly?

We do still meet the first Saturday each month, 10 am. We've also been known to do one-offs for special guests. We'd love to have you out, we've got our December meet open, January we'll have a guest, however.

Looking north from intersection of KVB and 3rd Ave. South.  This new hotel will hopefully cover up the blank white wall of the SoBro Tower parking garage.

If the SAP towers get built, they will fill in that gap between sobro and 222 from this angle, right? It would be a great density shot full of towers, that is if I'm correct about the placement of SAP.

I think that was probably the thinking when they built that big blank wall. Why devote a lot of money making it interesting if it’s going to be blocked in 3 years?

Yeah this area will have some of the densest high rise activity in town. The only place I can think of that would rival it is the area around  Commerce and  Church Streets, between like 3rd and 6th avenues.

The Drury Plaza is on its way, so you'll partially get your wish. :lol:

The folks in Sobro will have views of a 20 floor hotel now - not that the current view from that side is spectacular. Wonder if better views affect lease price points?

Encore can just hang it up.

Well they’re rentals so I suppose it’s not as big of a “back stab” as it would be if they were condos. If you were buying a unit in that building surely you’d do your research on the surrounding area, if views are what you’re after. For myself, the appeal of living downtown (I never have, mind you) would be more about the urban living than the views. Living in a lively, almost all hours of the day neighborhood would be more appealing than just having a good view of the city. For instance, I’d rather live in a lower floor on the upper west side or the village in New York, rather than have a great view of those neighborhoods from New Jersey.

A bit more from The Tennessean today:

MDHA committee gave concept approval to developer C.B. Ragland Co.'s plans for a 20-story, roughly 250-room hotel building with a three-meal restaurant at Third Avenue and Molloy Street in SoBro and 4,000 square feet of retail at Second and Molloy. That approval is subject to review of the skin of the building.

C.B. Ragland's President Michael Hayes expects to return to the committee within three months with more details such as full architectural renderings, the selected skin and exterior materials and possible revelation of the flag for the hotel that's planned for property that The Listening Room once occupied at 200 Molloy St.

The Nashville-based real estate company's plans also include a parking garage as part of the hotel project and an associated realignment of Molloy between Second and Third avenues south.

Adam Sichko at NBJ is now saying there will be 6,000 sq. ft. of retail/restaurant space on the ground floor, that it will be an upscale Hyatt brand, and it will have a late 2018 groundbreaking.

Park Hyatt, maybe?

      A team of Nashville’s biggest office landlord and a Gulch-area investor has been picked to negotiate a contract toward buying The Tennessean’s 10-acre downtown property.
      Upon finalizing the more than $55 million transaction, Raleigh, N.C.-based Highwoods Properties and Jim Caden could separately develop the various parcels. The property includes where the newspaper’s office sits at 1100 Broadway and several parking lots.

      Highwoods has a portfolio of more than 4.2 million square feet of Nashville area office space, including Bridgestone's 30-story world HQ, The Pinnacle at Symphony Place office tower, and the impending Mars Petcare HQ in at Ovation in Cool Springs. The company also developed Caterpillar Financial's headquarters on West End Avenue.

      Caden developed the retail strip now known as Demonbreun Hill before moving on to buying properties in the Gulch where he co-founded restaurant group M Street and co-owns several properties including the Déjà Vu strip club site on Demonbreun Street.

      Neither party has announced any specific plans for the property at this time.

      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.
