Love continued development (with height) in that area.  This building puts me in the mind of the residential building in the 5th and Broad project.  Just the structure/format/feel....

The Downtown Code does have very specific standards for garage lining and acces, yet even those standards make it relatively easy for developers to ignore the street with regards to vehicle access. IMHO the code should be revised so that on a major or secondary street, lining a garage like this building or the Greystar building on Division Street should be the requirment, period. Allowing the garage to take up so much of the low level frontage (think like the garage on 805 Lea going up currently) is cheaper for the developer, but much worse for the end-user experience.

Maybe you need to run for Council or even better be on the Planning commission.

Now that there will be actual residents living along West End Ave is there any hope of altering the street itself to make it not quite so highway like?  I'm not saying it needs to be whittled down to one lane with an eighty foot sidewalk or anything, but as of right now there is very little in the way of concessions to pedestrians on that road.

Makes a huge impact on that block!

Is snow still on the ground there?  We never got anything measurable and the past four days have been beautiful and warm. Amazing how different the weather between Chat and Nash frequently is.

It’s still around in areas that tony get direct sunlight. I’d imagine it will all be gone after today.

      Tony Giarratana is under contract to purchase the .43 acre site at the SE corner of Rosa L. Parks Blvd. and Church St. from Speedwagon Enterprises for an undisclosed price in order to build another apartment tower that he says will have at least 350 units. No further specs yet, but Goettsch Partners will be the architect (just like at 900 Church Tower) and Barge Design Solutions will be involved with engineering.  No renderings yet.
      "Our contract on 801 Church was only recently executed, so our drawings are trailing behind the 900 Church drawings by about nine months," Giarratana said.
      The tower at 900 Church St. will not have parking — it's not required under the property's downtown code zoning.
      The tower at 801 Church St. will have a parking garage, for tenants of that building and "to accommodate whatever parking demand we might have at 900 Church," Giarratana said.
      "Keep in mind, Amazon is not encouraging employees who have a personal automobile. Neither will we be encouraging residents who have a personal automobile," Giarratana said. "This is a new day for Nashville. Given the fact that we don’t have the $5 billion necessary to execute a public transportation plan, it’s going to be incredibly important that the employees at these downtown companies walk to work and don’t introduce their car into the traffic mix at peak times."
      He added: "We don’t think 'live-work-play' is a cliché. That is exactly the lifestyle we’ve been seeking to create downtown."
