Somera Road, up to 11 stories + rehab of old industrial buildings, hotel, office, retail, 2.6 acres, 700 8th Ave. SouthBy markhollin
Somera Road, a development firm out of NYC, is finalizing details on the purchase of 2.6 acres along 8th Ave. South by year's end that includes the Voorhees Building and the onetime home of the Downtown Antique Mall.
The plan will be to keep and upgrade those two structures and upgrading them with new lobbies, windows, elevators, etc. to become Class A office space. Most likely the remaining 3 other nondescript/non-historical buildings on the site would be razed. In their place could go new structures that might rise as high as 11 stories that would weave between those remaining two. Mixed-use of retail, office, hotel, and parking is envisioned.
Manuel Zeitlan Architects and ESa have been enlisted for design and architectural efforts.
They are open to selling some of the parcels or co-developing.

Swerdling in SoBro - 2 Hotels at 1st & KVB - 36 stories/450 ft./491 rooms, 14 stories/200'/ 200 roomsBy Paramount747
I guess we can start a thread for this.
Flank Inc, a NY based real estate developer, wants to build a 20 story, 192 room luxury hotel at 1101 Grundy. The site currently has a nondescript 3 story brick warehouse on the .37 acre site. The group has a contract to buy the site from Gulch Grundy Partners, who had purchased the plot for $2.05 million in 2015.
No word on which brand might be chosen, although Flank has worked with Perry Lane (a Marriott luxury brand) on some other recent projects in other cities. They are requesting 2 exemptions from design requirements of zoning regulations for that area and will go will go before the Metro Planning Commission on Thursday, Dec. 13.
The tower will also include a high-end restaurant and parking garage.
This hotel will be less than a block away from the new Asurion HQ, which will employ 2,000 people. The site also borders on Highwoods Properties (The Tennessean site), as well as being 1.5 blocks from the Endeavor's 1200 Broadway and The Gossett. Directly across the street to the north will be the Pins Mechanical Company entertainment venue. A lot percolating in this quadrant now.
