It's a good size and fit for the area. 

I don't hate the design, but I wish there were more windows (maybe not to the extent of glass box, but say about 20% more than what is there). Not a fan of the roof line. That could be dressed up a little.

My worry is that this design will be dated as soon as it is built. It will be one of those that 40-50 years from now people will say, "definitely a 2010s era building..."

I do like that it will be a little different, and I like that more is being proposed to "link" the two Gulch developments.

Interview with Chris Hyndman about his new hotel project in NBJ today.  Some highlights:
 

- Our strategy is to add … the epic array of amenities that this private club provides — amenities you'd never see in a hotel, certainly one of this boutique size.

- It's designed to attract the more savvy traveler rather than a typical tourist. It's a way for the hotel guest to really plug into the city and live that couple of days they're here as a local, rather than more of a generic tourist experience.

- The story for the local community is the membership for the creative class.  I'm not ready to say what the cost of membership will be at this time.

- We have a banking partner and we have the equity (all lined up).

- Eleventh House is a different ownership group [than M Street]. M Street Entertainment Group will operate it. But I'll own it with another group of investors, but Jim Caden is not part of it . Some of those are common ownership with other restaurants, but not all.

- Eleventh House won't occupy 100 percent of the land we are buying. The balance of the land will be surface parking in the immediate, with obviously the plan to eventually develop that as well.

This design is VERY Swedish/European. I love it and hope that Nashville gets more of it in the coming years! I think this design looks similar to the Joseph rendering.

I agree. I know some people aren't a fan of the design, but I think it will be unique. I kind of wish there wasn't a surface lot next to the building, but we can't win them all.

The good news is that the article said that the group plans for using the lot as a temporary measure to be developed later.

The design has grown on me in the past couple days. Also, I immediately thought "player piano scroll" when I first saw.

I think the design would be much less attractive if the building were taller/bigger. Instead, it's near-human scale makes it more interesting than ugly IMHO. Additionally, it's going to be a club  (not sure how that's going to work) and the rooms will be very large and upscale. Overall, my word for this building is "Interesting".

I enjoy the shift from a rigid window pattern to this design. Will be interested in the development of the material palette as it moves forward.

      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.

      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.
