or the 11th House?

I've been wondering about this one for months now.  Hopefully it's still on track.  

And yes, this design is a nice improvement.  Way better street presence and density now that they're able to but more of the surrounding parcels.  I wonder if they're chasing a luxury flag or just going an independent route.

There are changes to another proposed nearby hotel coming as well. 

My guess is the Eleventh House. 

The new renders look great !!   The developer not including a parking garage speaks volumes of the gulch district and the  greater downtown area.

Would you say the changes to the other hotel are for the better (in your opinion), or no?

I’m hoping to see another worldwide renowned hotel brand in Nashville at some point in the future, in my opinion an intercontinental or Ritz Carlton could fit in with the city’s evolving vibe and tourist draw. A hard Rock hotel could do very well here as well. I like this hotel edition, however I feel like at this point nashville has more boutique hotels than native residents haha.

I am absolutely astonished that this green wall did not come to fruition. Who in the world could have seen that coming?

Yeah...we should have taken bets on that in the early stages.  Some of us would have gotten rich. :D

The London and Miami Beach Editions are great properties.  Each has pretty distinctive design elements, several levels above anything here now.

8,900-square-foot food hall

That's an unexpected addition. 

 

Edit:

Am I reading the story right? Flank is trying to buy land around their current plot? Is that to build THIS building or for something in the future? I assume if it's required for this building then the timeline may be sort of long for this to get going.

You are correct, they have to buy the land behind the current property which from my understanding is under contract and they also have to buy the gravel lot from Highwoods that fronts 11th. They are still in negotiations as far as I know for that parcel.

Do all these adjacent land purchases need to happen prior to them starting construction on this hotel?

Maybe this will motivate the 1100 Broadway (Tennessean site) developers to think bigger and bolder, too.

I imagine Hines has some big ideas for this site.

Ithink we have an idea of the scope of the project and there are some on this board working on the project but alas they have to keep it close to the vest.

      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.
