Moore Building/15 Stories/222 FT/227,000 sq. ft. office/8,500 sq. ft. retail, internal garage, 19th & Chet Atkins

That's actually a fairly attractive building. 

Except the drawing makes it appear taller than the Morris. I realize the floor-ceiling height is greater with office, cf residential/hotel, but is that possible with 15 floors office over 21 floors residential?

I like it. I dig the trees that are planted above ground level up the building, it kind of reminds me of a mini-KVB Circle office building.

I've seen offices go at about 15" a floor...so that would put it at about 225'?  So...I could see 250' max.  Sound about right?

Looks like one drawing sort of shows 15 and another one is 16 floor.

Floor to ceiling on a typical office builing is 15, so 15 floors equates to 225 and if it is 16 , that makes it 240. The Morris is only 19 and at 10 feet a floor that would only be around 190. Both of these give or take some for the lobby.

I like this as well. I'm really excited to see a bit more information on materials and detailing of those materials. 

This adds to the already nice density that's formed almost overnight in the area.

Per the plans front sheet...

It may be hard to read, but here is information regarding the exterior materials to be used...

Brick should look really good on it. I also like the retail and restaurant space their including, all of the new developments in this area are doing a top-notch job at street activation. Even if 90% of it is yoga studios, juice bars, and higher end restaurants.

Another thread was started on this last November, but I'll go ahead and fly-in the improtant material from that into this one, and then delete the original.

Creed Investment Company will go before Metro Planning Commission on Dec. 14 to seek plan zoning for a 16 story tower, primarily office space, but also some retail.  This is on the .76 acre lot directly across 19th Ave. South from the brand new 19 story Morris residential tower. The address is 821-827 19th Ave. South.

Ragan Smith will handle land planning, and Gresham Smith will be architect. No renderings yet. 

Story is currently behind the paywall:

Question about that Kenect land...

I notice it doesn't include the land that Virginia's Market is on (that pie shaped point at 18th and Division).  Will that Virginia's land, with whatever else is on what Kenect didn't buy, be large enough for something in the future?

It probably would, but I would hate to lose another business like Virginias, as those older businesses have been around for a long time. Alas JJs will probably bite the dust when Vanderbilt develops that land.

Nice looking but I'm not a big fan of plopping an office building right in the middle of a booming residential area.  Would you want a big office complex in the middle of Germantown or 12th South?  The traffic would be ridiculous because while some people that would work there would live nearby others would commute from the suburbs. 

This neighborhood would be better served with the office building on West End or Music Row. Leave that spot for a really nice condo tower.

I disagree, respectfully. I think having a mix of office, residential, and hotel makes a neighborhood much more active at all hours. Solely residential neighborhoods tend to be kind of dead during the day, but office buildings hold plenty of daytime restaurant consumers, which makes for a much more active neighborhood. 

 I agree completely.  Putting an office tower in Germantown might be one thing, but this is a more high density neighborhood that is more set up to be a true mixed use 24/7 area.

      Brentwood-based GBT Realty wants to build a two tower (one that could go as high as 20 stories tall) complex near the intersection of West End Ave., Murphy Road, and I-440. To be called 3415 Murphy, it will include 250,000 sq. ft. of Class A office space, 175 hotel rooms, 30,000 sq. ft. of restaurant/retail, and a parking garage on the 1.5 acre site at 3415-3419 Murphy Rd.  The retail/restaurant space would front Murphy Rd., and the hotel/office towers would be toward the back of the lot, along I-440. 

      No renderings as of yet, other than the schematic layout below. Project cost and financing are not clear yet.  Proposed completion date is 2022. Metro Planning Commission is scheduled to review the plan Aug. 9.  The commission's votes are non-binding on Metro Council, where 3 majority votes must occur in order for a requested zoning change to become law.

      A 10 & 11 story, 351 unit apartment development is planned by Dinerstein Companies on the former RJ Young site at 805-809 Division St. in The Gulch. No word yet on the construction timetable, nor renderings made available.  Reports are that it will be a contemporary design. Hoar Construction is reportedly the contractor.

      Work is scheduled to begin this month (July, 2016). Some pertinent facts:
      From Metro project tracker, heights are officially 255 ft for Apartments and 188 ft for Hotel The existing house is to be demolished and rebuilt near the Marathon Motorworks complex One half block off West End and will have a significant impact on the Mid-town skyline

      I want to quote the Alex S. Palmer & Company:
      "The future of Nashville is under construction now. Future generations have to live with what we, as developers, create. That places a heavy responsibility on us to be excellent—to only be involved in quality developments. Alex S. Palmer & Company is totally committed to developing space that is as functional and aesthetic as we can possibly make it ... for out time and for the future."
      If Alex can wait for WES, we can too. This is from a Sept. 27, 1987 Tennessean ad I found while rummaging through some drawers. Come on, Alex, the suit fits now. Build us our buildings.
