Parke West, 3415 Murphy, 15 story residential (210 units), 9 story dual brand hotel, 19,000 sq. ft. of retail, underground garageBy markhollin
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.

2nd & Peabody, 38 stories/618 ft. (hotel/office) and 33 stories/456 ft. (another hotel and residential)By markhollin
2nd & Peabody will be a two tower complex (one at 38 stories/618 ft. with a hotel and office space; the other at 33 stories/456 ft. featuring additional hotel and residential) on the 2.2 acre full block at 507 2nd Ave. South and 203 Peabody St. There will be street level retail in both structures, and at least 6 levels of underground parking beneath the whole block. At 618 feet, the first tower would become the tallest building in Nashville as well as Tennessee.
Congress Group will be the developer, buying the land at a currently undisclosed price from Mark Bloom/Larry Patel, who had loosely planned a hotel on the site for years.
No word on how many units of hotel/residential in each unit, or sq. footage of office and retail space. Nor is their word on hotel brands.
Lea Ave. will be realigned in order to maximize the traffic flow.
Gresham Smith is the architect, and Hawkins Partners will handle engineering/land planning.
The team will go before the Metro Planning Commission on March 11 to seek a height modification to the downtown code zoning currently in place on the site. Three nondescript buildings on the site will need to be razed.

BB&T office tower in uptown Charlotte sold for $115 million to a New York firm
BY DANIELLE CHEMTOB
JANUARY 20, 2021 02:15 PM, UPDATED 41 MINUTES AGO
The BB&T Center in uptown Charlotte sold for $115 million to a New York company, Mecklenburg County property records show.
The sale included the 22-story office tower and the parking garage next door, according to a Tuesday release from JLL Capital Markets, which brokered the sale.
The center, which was built in 1977, was sold to an entity called BB&T Properties LLC, based in New York. JLL’s release declined to name the buyer.

This building sold for $117 million in 2007, $149 million in 2017, and now $115 million. Nobody seems to be willing to accept the fact that "Uptown" Charlotte is overbuilt, especially in the office and hotel sectors. The Class B buildings (including the subject property, and several other towers built in the '60s/'70s) are going to take it on the chin as their tenants are given deep rental discounts and lease concessions by the landlords of the new buildings.
Circle South, 30 story/418'/535,000 sq. ft. office tower; 34 story/330'/500 residential tower; 15,000 sq. ft. of retail, 2.6 acres at Lafayette and 8th Ave. SouthBy markhollin
More details and at least one rendering will hopefully be coming later today.
