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


Recommended Posts

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.

New design in Nashville Post looks much improved to me: https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/article/21038156/proposed-murphy-road-project-altered#&gid=1&pid=5  

Some renderings from Gresham and Smith's website;     There is a video with some construction aerials from a few weeks ago.

That very spot had a large yellow brick 2 story house on it in 1955 when we moved from Atlanta and I was 5 yo. It was torn down right after we moved to a duplex on Love Circle and I remember it because my mother went to a yard sale there, probably in preparation to vacate for the next use. Imagine if we had been told that there would be a 20 story tower there some day. The tallest building in Nashville had 11 stories at that time.  (the duplex was actually a house with a mother-in-law apt upstairs where the landlady lived - which is still there)

Wasn't there a Mr Gatti's Pizza on this property at one point (forever ago)? Or was that the property directly west of this one? Pizza and a decent arcade; good times when I was a kid.

Mr. Gatti's was definitely there somewhere.    That Mr Gatti's was one of our favorite hangouts in college, along with the Ruby Tuesdays in the old house directly across from there on Murphy Road.

My guess is they will put a light at the entrance ramp to 440 to help with traffic. One thing is they, being GBT is competing with Eakin for an office tenant for the building, unless they already have one.

Office buildings with one or zero tenants as far as we know. Just a guess but this is probably well over 2 million sq. ft. of space. Probably closer to three million.

Mainland Tower ,30 stories, one tenant , that could be a problem

One City 2 office buildings,  like 8 and 14 stories, no tenants, buildings have been announced for a while.

The GBT tower 20 stories no tenants announced

Endeavor tower 20 stories, no tenant

Nashville Yards , at least three office buildings with about 600 thousand sq. ft. maybe more, no tenant

Eakin tower on RMH, 9 stories , one tenant

Panatonni building on One Music circle South I think 1 tenant

Emory building at 18th and Chet, I think one tenant but not sure

Creed tower at 19th and Chet, no tenants

Panatonni office building announced for Edgehill and 16th , no tenant

Eakin tower 30th and Vanderbilt Place

The Propst Company tower 20 plus stories, 500 k Sq. Ft.

Not sure if AllianceBernstien will take all of the 5th plus broad site

 

This is not counting the project on 8th south Elmington wants to do.... 600 k sq. ft. The Landings at River North, plus all the space that Highwoods bought from the Tennessean.

@smeagolsfree, this is exactly what I have been saying for a long long time now. Pulling AB was huge and it will have a ancillary effect. Endeavor will have the building capable to entice "the next AB"

I have heard one new building that is offering new space cheaper than some older existing spaces. What does that say??? I am not predicting doom, but I am surprised that the absorption rate has kept up as long as it has, even with the shortage of recent years

And I thought ONE KVB (Mainland) had signed on an accounting firm, also. With the law firm occupying 22% of the building, the other firm might push current occupancy up to 30 to 33 % of the building. That sounds like a good start.

I don't know how much you need to feel confident about filling it up once it's finished.

That is a lot of space to fill. On the optimistic side, absorption has been running around 300 k per quarter, which would fill it within 2-3 years. I think they're teeing these up in case that continues. If it doesn't many will disappear/downsize.

^ ^ ^ One slight addendum:  Panatonni's One Music Circle South (120,000 sq. ft.)  is going to be primarily occupied by BMG Music.  I believe it will be referred to as the BMG Building and will have their signage exclusively on the top.

Three groups locking arms in opposition to the development: the Richland-West End Neighborhood Association, the Sylvan Park Neighborhood Association and the Hillsboro-West End Neighborhood Association.

I think it is in Freddie's district and if that is the case he does not oppose it, but if it is in one of the other districts then it probably will not get past Council as council normally goes with the recommendation of the council person the project lies in. So if it is in Murphy's district is probably will not pass. It has already passed Planning and that still takes procedural votes in Council. 

 

I think this is the case. Don't quote me.

It is in Ed Kindall's district. Every article I read more or less says he didn't return their phone call.

Bowing to pressure from neighborhood associations, it looks like GBT is going to reduce the height of this project even further when it is presented at a Metro Council public hearing on Dec. 5th.  No word on what the new shorter scale will be.

THey ought to make it 5 stories and very ugly... like a giant convenience store, as the residents in that area don't seem to mind the plethora of convenience stores, gas stations and chintzy little shopping centers. 

Maybe lime green! Or creamsicle orange.

      More details and at least one rendering will hopefully be coming later today.

      GBT Realtors is planning a 27 story, 370 ft. mixed-use tower that will be primarily residential at 2416 West End Ave., at the split with Elliston Place.  There will also be significant restaurant and retail space on the first to floors, and 5 levels of underground parking. Some advance documents state that, all told, the structure will entail 556,000 sq. ft. 

      GBT paid $8.1 million for the for the former Smoothie King/Rite Aid buildings closest to the intersection, and has the additional .87 acre made up of Emma's Flowers, Gyros Kitchen Greek Cafe, and Rotier's Grille under contract for undisclosed prices.
      There will be a small green space at the split, and a new driveway on the far eastern part of the site that will connect West End and Elliston Place.
      “Our priority has been on architectural design and pedestrian safety improvements, including upgrades at four surrounding intersections that GBT would fund,” says Fiona Haulter of GBT. “Through discussions with Metro Public Works, the Metro Parks Department, the Centennial Park Conservancy and Vanderbilt, we have identified opportunities to increase safety, accessibility and walkability to and from Centennial Park, Vanderbilt and businesses in the area.”
      Haulter said designs are still preliminary and that GBT is seeking “an exceptional and iconic design that is worthy of this gateway location.”

      Gresham Smith is the architect. They and GBT will go before Metro Planning Commission in July to request specific plan zoning for the site.

      Eden House will be a minimum 10 story residential tower with probably 200 units being planned by GBT Realty for the site of the former Green Hills Fire Station on .87 acre at 2025 Richard Jones Rd, immediately to the north of Vertis Green Hills (18 stories, opened in 2018). 

      GBT will soon hold a community regarding the plans says Metro Councilman Russ Pulley, in whose this district it would be built. He said the name Eden is derived from one of the original streets in Green Hills, while “House” references the former Nashville Fire Station building (pictured) sitting on the site.
      Neither renderings nor the future building's height has been released yet.
      GBT emailed the Nashville Post a statement noting Eden House will be "a high-end residential project that will complement Green Hills with ground-floor retail and restaurants to increase connectivity and walkability along Richard Jones Rd.”

      ONE22ONE will be the name of the  23 to 27 story,   365-500,000 sq. ft. office tower to be built on the .58 acre Firestone Store site at 1221 Broadway by GBT Realty.  It will include 7,000 sq. ft. of street level retail. They are also under contract for the .2 acre site just to the west owned by Rusty Dunn, that will make the full site .78 acre. Tentative opening is 2022.

      The parcel is zoned to allow a building of 20 floors. It falls within the Metro Planning Department’s Downtown Code and, as such, GBT eventually will go before the Downtown Code Review Committee to seek bonus height, which could yield a structure of, as noted, up to 27 floors. The company is expected to offer street-level activation and design elements beyond what is required to gain the bonus height.

      Construction financing not secured yet.
