900 Church Street, 34 stories/416 ft., 356 residential units, $160 million, start July, 2020

Recommended Posts


One of the lots I suggested he put up his paramount tower.  Don't know what the appeal is for him with the park he's trying to get. Needs to go ALL-IN here for the paramount.

900 Church Street lot is not a shape that would accommodate the Paramount tower design. Too narrow and deep.

Good eye.  I do think it would fit at the vacant lot across Church. And def would fit (plus more) on the old Tulane Hotel site two blocks east.

I just hid my post Mark as I was not sure you got my message. This is the first of several mystery towers announced.

You mean there are more announcements in the coming days?

A 32-33 story residential tower at 900 Church St. is being planned for a Summer 2022 opening by Tony Giarratana on the .31 acre lot at 900 Charlotte Ave. It should stand at least 400 feet in height. No word on how many units,or if there is a parking garage included.

This thin block is now inhabited by the 1 story YMCA of Middle Tennessee admin building, which has no historical significance. It is also just one block east of the twin Amazon towers currently under construction as part of the Nashville Yards development.

Glad to see Mr. Giarratana is not letting the fighting over Church Street Park keep him from exploring other opportunities (It's a fight I expect he'll lose with the new mayor holding sway).  However, I'd hope he'd be capable of coming up with a  more inspiring design. A variation of this stacked boxes design is either built or proposed for about a dozen other cities. C'mon Giarratana, give us something uniquely & attractively forward looking.

Original post says Charlotte at the end of the first sentence , btw.

 

Wait! What!? Where?! NVM: I see. The article says Church Street. And the pic accompanying is of 900 Church. And Don is right... it's verrrrrrry narrow.

So... will this be rental residential, or residential for purchase?

Rental, the website for the project says "apartments..."

      ONE22ONE will be the name of the  23 to 27 story,   365-500,000 sq. ft. office tower to be built on the .58 acre Firestone Store site at 1221 Broadway by GBT Realty.  It will include 7,000 sq. ft. of street level retail. They are also under contract for the .2 acre site just to the west owned by Rusty Dunn, that will make the full site .78 acre. Tentative opening is 2022.

      The parcel is zoned to allow a building of 20 floors. It falls within the Metro Planning Department’s Downtown Code and, as such, GBT eventually will go before the Downtown Code Review Committee to seek bonus height, which could yield a structure of, as noted, up to 27 floors. The company is expected to offer street-level activation and design elements beyond what is required to gain the bonus height.

      Construction financing not secured yet.

      Metro's future Permanent Supportive Housing and Downtown Homeless Service Center appears to be moving forward at 505 2nd Ave. North, just across Gay St. from the new Criminal Justice Center.  The small lot will feature a multi-story structure (still no official height or renderings) that will include at least 100 permanent housing units, and a homeless service center that will feature on-site counseling, basic hygiene and health services, and case management and housing navigation.

      Bell & Assoc. will serve as the contractor; Moody-Nolan as project architect, Catalyst for civil engineering; EMC, structural engineering; ICT, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering; SRMC, security consultants; and EDGE, landscape design.

      Originally this was planned for 301 James Robertson Pkwy. as part of Tony Giarratana's deal the 65 story/660'-750' Paramount Tower at Church Street Park. Tony agreed to develop this to include some workforce housing in exchange for the park space on Church between 6th Ave. North and Capitol Blvd.
