Looking at this picture, when the Centric Hotel is complete, is it possible the swimming pool at The SoBro will only get direct sunlight for a few weeks each year, or maybe never get direct sunlight?

Same issue happens for the pool at the nearby Encore.

If the renderings are accurate, the pool level of the hotel will align with the SoBro pool level and the hotel tower would be to the left. It will get some sunshine, but not a lot.

Well... that's what happens when you build a pool in a big city that isn't a rooftop pool. Viridian and Skyhouse did it right!

I talked to the PM on this job yesterday. He said they are already behind schedule as they are having a difficult time getting through the rock. He said they continue to break chisels and bits trying to get through the surface.

Another crane foundation?

I copied this photo from @downtownresidentpost above. That boxed in area contains the rebar for a cluster of piers. Don't know why it's boxed in, but it looks a bit like a crane base but I don't think so. Here's the other angle before the box was built around it.

It could also be where the elevators are going to be located.   The pilings and foundation look similar to when they were building the crane pad on Molloy, only a little larger in size.  I'm not an architect or an engineer, just taking a picture and a guess.

I was thinking elevators as well, as that side of the building is supposed to be mostly concrete/metal siding with very few windows

Definitely the elevator/stair shaft. It would be the base of the white strip in the rendering above.

It also gives you a good idea of how the rest of the building will sit on the footprint.  In the rendering above, note that the glass on the ground floor doesn't go all the way under the parking garage portion. That's because the garage will be cantilevered over a portion of what is now the sidewalk. Presumably the cantilevering is to provide a consistent building wall along Malloy in anticipation of it (possibly... HOPEFULLY) being realigned.

I’m pretty sure Malloy is going to be re-aligned. I’ll see if I can find the site plan I got in the mail when they first started.

      RMR Group out of Massachusetts is planning a massive mixed-use project at 111 North 1st Street on the East Bank on the 16.72 acres that currently houses the TravelCenters of America (TA) Truck Stop. It will include 3 million sq. ft. of office, retail, residential, and hotel space.  Some of the buildings could be as tall as 30 stories.  Probably will not get underway until at least 2022.  No renderings as of yet.
      The 16-acre site is bordered by a CSX railway to the north, James Robertson Parkway to the south, Interstate 24 to the east and North First Street to the west. 
      RMR has enlisted a local team of Hastings Architecture Associates, attorney Shawn Henry of Tune Entrekin & White, civil engineering firm Barge Cauthen and traffic engineering and analysis company KCI.

      RMR has $32 billion in assets.

      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.
