805 Lea, 35 stories, 375 residential units, retail

I like it. It's not the usual box... or even box-on-pedestal design. Looks also like they incorporate a brick facade of an existing building along 8th Avenue. And the portion of the podium running along Lea looks like it's at an angle. And there's some variation to the balconies, such that they're not all the same patter for 30 floors up.

Is that property that Tony G owns near this big enough for him to go for a new tallest? With the hotels nearby, the KVB office building and this project, a super tall on that property would rise out of an actual skyline, instead of looking weird surrounded by a bunch of 3 story paint shops.

Actually, it is a word, and it means almost how you used it, except it's a verb and not an adjective:  "to turn, veer, or shift to the south"

I    wonder if Tony has anything else planned or if he's going to ride off into the sunset with 505 as his legacy?

All of this goes to Metro Development and Design Review Committee today, to seek concept approval for the project.

There will be 2.5 levels of parking below grade, and 4 levels above (as part of the pedestal).

The team behind what would be a 35-story mixed high-rise proposed for a spot located near the Korean Veterans Boulevard Roundabout decided not to face the committee Tuesday. It will go before the body, instead, on Tuesday, Dec. 5.  Documents submitted to Metro do not list a developer and the identification of that entity was not disclosed Tuesday:

I could be 100% wrong on this, but I have the feeling this isn't a realistic proposal. 


I tend to agree. The project is a residential tower that isn’t fronting a major street. There is a property between it and 8th Avenue. I have also heard through the grapevine that the Sobro isn’t doing well at all. That may make it harder for others to do a tower that isn’t on super prime property.

Can anyone else confirm The Sobro is not doing well?

      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.

      Expansion of Tennessean HQ in 1985:

    • By markhollin
      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:

      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.
