Flank Inc. has finalized purchase of all properties for the 1100 Porter Edition Hotel.  The two pieces that bookend the initial space at 1101 Grundy are now secured, giving them a total of .8 acre on which to build.  No word on what they paid for those parcels.  The price tag for construction is now set at $170 million.

Hope this one gets started soon!

"We have been tracking Nashville’s evolution for some time. It is a city on-trend," Kully said in a statement to the Business Journal. "Nashville excites us because it’s a town that is too rich and layered for simple definitions. … Nashville is home to and attracts multiple industries and demonstrates eclectic and sustainable growth."

Sustainable? Rich and layered?  Gag me!! Would appreciate a simple, "Nashville has a lot of opportunity in a boom we don't see ending anytime soon."

I went digging around on the e-permits website, and found the demo-permit application.

Of note, there is a noise mitigation letter from JE DUNN attached.

Problem is there is no one to wake up where that building is. Closest residents are at 11 North and there is a lot more noise coming from he other construction sites that are a little closer to them.

The Gossett apartments are just down Grundy street from there, at 12th and Grundy.

CandyAisles knows more than he is saying I am sure as he is very connected. 

Also 12th and Porter is vacant and being used by JE Dunn. I dont think they will end up saving the building and at some point it will come down. There has not been a restaurant in there for almost a year I think. I hope I am wrong about the building but I will bet it will come down at some point as I said.

      125 11th Ave. North will be a 26 story, 322' residential tower featuring  387 units, 17,000 sq. ft. of ground level restaurant/retail, and internal garage (2 levels below grade, 2 above) with about 425 spaces.  It is being developed by Flank, Inc., and will serve as a companion tower to their 21 story Gibson Residences currently u.c. directly to the west.  There will be an upper patio/plaza that connects the two over Comer's Alley and fronting the Church Street Viaduct.

      Flank paid $16 million for the land in May of this year.

      Downtown Code permits 20 floors at this site, so Flank will be requesting 6 floors of bonus height.  

      ESa is serving as the architect.

      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.

      Flank Inc. is going to develop a high-end mixed-use tower in the north Gulch on the 1.1 acre site of the Gibson Guitar Building at 1117 Church St. (which borders the Church Street Viaduct at 12th Ave. North.   No price for the sale from Somera Road is currently known, but the sale is to be finished by year's end. No word on floors/height yet.

      They purchased an additional the .34 acre site at 130 12th Ave. North (just south of the Gibson Building site) from Somera Road for $6.9 million a few days ago.

      Permits seem to be in place for the demo of the Gibson Building.  Last year, Somera Road had planned on redeveloping the 1946-era Gibson structure into retail/office space.

      The new info on the 16 & 20 story residential towers that are part of the project starts on page 2 of this thread on Jan. 29, 2021.

      Here is the original info:

      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:
