This looks great! Hopefully we get some street activation here.

*Wish-list* wouldnt it be nice if they could go under the RR tracks and somehow connect the street grid?

There was a small permit pulled for interior demo of the Antique Mall earlier last week. So it seems as if the project will start with the rehab of the older structures first. I am not 100% sure about this, but it just seems that will be the case as they are still in the design phase for the rest of the property. I look for demo permits to be pulled for the non-descript buildings on the property as well.

Tiny's Construction will be handling the renovation of the former Downtown Antique Mall building at 608 8th Ave. South.  As Smeagolsfree alluded, a permit was granted for removal of non-load-bearing walls.

I will say no new buildings are present in this video meaning that will probably be a ways down the road. They will get the first two phase of this project done first and that is the Voorhees building and the old Antique Mall.

Yes, but, I've always maintained that their country fried steak would be my official Last Meal if I ever found myself in that situation so it's pretty much worth it. Even on not-Thursdays :lol:

Arnold's holds quite a few of my 'best __________ I've ever had' dishes... what an icon of a place.  That yellow squash casserole is my favorite of them all though.  God, I'd weigh 700 pounds if I lived anywhere near Arnold's.

      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.

      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, 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.
