I have now changed this one to under construction as site is being fenced off today.

Here we go.

And from downtown.

It's 333' 4" according to the diagram from the 1st floor to the top of the parapet. 

That's interesting, Wikipedia has it listed at 370 feet, not even close!

May have been based on the taller initial proposal. The person editing that page is who I replied to, so I'm sure it'll be updated shortly :)

Does anyone by chance have a diagramed height on this project or other resource? I can’t seem to find a consistent one to document.

Told you these guys can help you  out! A wealth of knowledge and resources!

Ron, Mark, Bob, what do you guys think about having a location (pinned at top of existing thread or it’s own thread) for construction docs, etc.? Would be convenient for quick access and might help establish some accuracy in referencing and reporting. Apologies if this already exists and I’ve missed it.

I thought there was a thread, but not pinned........sort of ????

 

If not, I am good with it sort of as I just sent a PM about some reorganization that could help with this and some pinned threads issues.

It's slowly getting better like a patient who's recovering from the measles.  However I really don't like the random yellow blocks at the base, it looks cheap like a fast food restaurant.

I’m really torn.  Part of me thinks it’s way too busy…but it’s kinda a unique look.  I’m just not sure how it’s going to age.

When you look at Sobro looking like one big area of blue glass, I think we need 805 Lea and Embassy Suites to have variety in downtown's facades.

The progression on the facade for this one has been extremely slow, there's still a lot of work to do on the corner portion, back side, and top to get it to the final look. I think it will be really sharp once it's finally completed.

I honestly wonder if you show someone who is not familiar with Nashville this photo…what they would think…with this building and Sticks?  It’s a really strange image if you think about it.

I've had to get over myself about this issue.  I attempted multiple times to update some of the Wikipedia listings only to have my updates removed each time.

Ten days later...as Yukon Cornelius famously laments every Christmas...nothin'!

@downtownresident this height has been corrected on the Wiki page along with the Regency Apartments. If anyone has docs for others that need to change please let me know! 

There's one that I've been wondering about and that's the Amazon 2 building.  They have it listed at 305 feet but that's 35 feet shorter than Amazon 1 which is listed at 340 feet.  Every render I've seen shows Amazon 2 looking quite a bit taller than Amazon 1 but I don't know what it's supposed to be!  So if anyone has the docs on that one maybe they could let you know!

I have been curious of that as well, my guess has always been that the multi story garage underneath it is not included in the actual “building” height. Someone else may be more familiar or have mentioned it on the Amazon thread?

I have a document citing the height of Amazon 2. The height is measured from Platform Way N, which does not include the parking garage floors underneath Church Street.

They might, the only thing I could find was that it was going to be 22 stories which is one story taller than Amazon 1.  They've changed things a lot since it was first announced.  The 805 Lea building has too.  It actually looks pretty impressive when you're driving in that area though and it's got some pretty good bulk to it.

Is this the one with the new render?  I’m thinking Amazon 2 is now over 400’…right?

      A massive 14.5 acre mixed-use project to be called Skyline East will populate the western edge of McFerrin Park, facing Dickerson Pike (where it parallels I-24) at Joseph Avenue.  It could involved numerous 6 to 15 story structures, 1,400 residential units, and 500,000 sq. ft. of commercial/office space, as well as parking decks.  This will be the largest project of its kind in East Nashville. No renderings as of yet.

      Currently there are 212 apartments and townhomes on the site (some of them Section 8 Housing).

      The technical addresses include 301 North 2nd St., 651 and 660 Joseph Ave. Riverchase bought the 3 parcels that make up the site in 2017 for $1.2 million.
      “Riverchase Holdings LLC is excited to be part of the planning and revitalization of the Dickerson Pike corridor and East Nashville community," said Scott Morton, an associate at that firm. "The 15-acre site is located at the 'gateway' to Dickerson Pike and is well positioned to set the tone for quality redevelopment on the corridor."
      Morton said the group has participated in ongoing workshops Metro's Planning Department is hosting to create concensus on what future development should look like along Dickerson Pike. Metro's Planning Commission could adopt a final plan this summer at their June 13 meetings
      Morton said the Skyline East proposal "is consistent with the theme and intent of community recommendations."

      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.

      This is a re-configuring of a project that was supposedly going to be done by Hensler, but now will be the same Austin-based Endeavor group that is also doing the 26 story residential/office/Whole Foods on Broadway and 12th Ave. South.

      Here is the Tennessean article on the new proposal that will include a 28 story hotel, 28 story residential, and 21 story office:

      http://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2017/07/26/tower-project-planned-deja-vu-demonbreun-site/427602001/
      Here are the notes from the original concept (along with original renderings).  New renderings on page 2 of this thread on July 26, 2017.

       LA_TN and TheATX did some good snooping and found info online regarding Ray Hensler's proposed mixed-us project on what is commonly referred to as the Deja Vu site (although there are several more properties involved with the nearly full square block). 

      This 1 million square foot mixed-use development encompasses 2.7 acres at the periphery of downtown Nashville in the north Gulch area (see map below) encompassed by Demonbreun on the south, 13th Ave. South/I-40/65 on the west, McGavock on the north, and 12th Ave. South on the east.
      - Phase I will include a 290,000 square foot, 20-story office building with retail uses at the ground level and structured parking above- and below-grade.
      - Phase II will add a 260,000 square foot, 250-room hotel and a 170,000 square foot, 75-unit condo tower to the site.
      - Phase III will add 290,000 square feet of residential in a 25-story, 245-unit tower.
      The complex topography, neighboring buildings and adjacent infrastructure all influenced the master planning and architecture of the project, along with Nashville's form-based code.

      The renderings show structures of 34, 24, and 20 stories...so they don't match up with the Phase I, II, and II mentioned above.
      Here are some older articles of speculation on Hensler's plans and the sale of the properties:

      Here are some renderings of the original Hensler-led proposal which has now been eclipsed. Renderings of the new Endeavor plans in a July 26th post on page 2 of this thread.

      Market Street Enterprises announces their newest structure in their Gulch development: Three Thirty Three office building.  It will be a 5 story brick and glass structure featuring 69,000 sq. ft. of office space on top of a first floor primarily made up of 11,000 sq. ft. of retail that will face both Pine and 11th Ave. South.   It will be located at the NW corner of Pine and 11th Ave. North in The Gulch.
