1100 Porter EDITION Hotel (formerly Flank Hotel), 16 stories, 281 rooms, restaurant, concert venue

I told Mark Saturday something was up at this location. We just didnt have time to get the information. My guess was that they would demolish the existing building as you have to get your moneys worth when paying the higher real estate prices. 

This company does do rehab work and we were hoping that may have been the case but not. Here is their website...…  http://flankonline.com/

 

If the economy holds out for a while we will continue to see these announcements.

I think that was where Google Fiber was to go, but it didnt work out as they chose another location. I think this was a case of take the money and run.

IS THIS LEGIT?  :tw_love:

 

that would instantly become one of my favorite buildings in the entire city if built like that. that said, knowing how most proposals go with a lot of plant coverage, it will likely be scaled back in a number of ways.

not getting my hopes up, but a man can pray.

getting the bonus height might not happen. Even with the bonus height, projects get scaled back.

As an urban gardener, I'd love to see the watering system to keep these plants green.  Of course, they could use sedum like MCC did...

For those who can't get behind the Nashville Post paywall, a few more details:

- The neighborhood is zoned for 16 stories, they will try to get an allowance for 20 with Metro Planning Dept. on Dec. 13th.

- ESa will be the architect.

- No word yet on the brand. 

- “We have designed a luxury hotel of the Gulch and for the Gulch — rich in texture, materiality, and greenery,” said Jon Kully, Flank managing partner. “Each facade is thoughtfully designed and engages the community in every direction — on Porter, Grundy, 11th and 12th.”

Get rid of the plants and it might be fine but its hard to tell what the building looks like with all the ugly  greenery.

You're so wrong.  Needs more/bigger plants.

You either like this kind of architecture or you dont. For me a building needs to be pleasing to the eye. This one and ones like it are not. Thats just me. I dont like root beer either.

What he said....

This is why I wish the city would at least cut back the trees on 2nd Avenue-I can't enjoy the beauty of the old buildings because they are hidden behind all the vegetation!

I like root beer though.

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.

I love it. I wish more developers would put greenery in their designs. Although I’m sure the Tennessee heat will torch those plants.

I don't mind greenery...as long as it's manicured.  This looks a little bushy.

      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.

      The former Downtown Antique Mall structure will be saved and refurbished into Class A office space:


      The Voorhees Building will also be saved and refurbished for Class A office space:

      An up-to-24 story mixed-use tower including apartments, hotel space, and a parking garage is being planned by HRI Properties (owners of Holston House) at the SW corner of Rosa Parks Blvd. and Commerce St. that has been owned by Christ Church Cathedral as a surface lot for parishoners over the past dozen years. Prior to 2004, it had been home to the Hathcock Building, which was razed then.

      As part of the new tower, the church will retain at least 75 contiguous and structured parking spaces in the future building and receive monthly ground lease payments.

      HRI will now begin securing various Metro approvals and financing, which they hope to complete by the end of this year.  They are currently working on architectural drawings and schematics for review.  They hope to break ground by early 2020, with a 2 year construction planned.
