Moore Creed Building/15 Stories/222 FT/214,000 sq. ft./19th & Chet Atkins

Recommended Posts


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:

Here is a view of the lot looking south along 19th Ave. South:

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.

Reminds me of the rolling mill hill proposal. Looks very nice so fingers crossed that the rolling mill hill building below will turn out more like this project.

      Spectrum | Emery Inc. has offered specifics and has released an image for its 18th & Chet office building planned for Music Row. The 10-story building, to anchor the northeast corner of 18th Avenue South and Chet Atkins Place, will span about 130,000 square feet, with Nashville-based Earl Swensson Associates to serve as architect.
      Spectrum | Emery has the multi-parcel property under contract and hopes to close on the purchase by August’s end. David Wells, Spectrum | Emery vice president, told NBJ the company expects to ask about $38 per square foot.
      An early to mid-2018 completion date is being eyed.      --Nashville Post, June 23, 2016

      The redevelopment of Midtown Square, Charlotte's original indoor mall bulit in the 1950s is now back on the front burner. Plans will soon be circulated showing the renderings for Phase 1. On the current site of the dormant Charlottetown Cinemas will be a "double decker" store. The first floor will be a Home Depot Expo. The 2nd floor will be a Target.

      This plan will go before the Charlotte City Council at the end of July. The developer, Pappas Properties, will be asking for City assistance in building a public parking deck for the project. This would be a deal similar to the East Park develpment where the city would recoup the cost of building the decks in about 6 years.

      Phase 2 will be built on the current site of the Midtown Square Mall and will include some 90 condos and more retail.

      Don't have a pic of the rendering, but here is a map of the area. You can see how close this is to downtown.
