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

Recommended Posts


A little more about the YMCA building from The Tennessean. Article is a bit vague on how the DT Y plans to expand its programs with growth nearly doubling their membership in the past 6 years. Sounds like they'll be looking at a capital campaign at some point to expand their facility on 9th Avenue.

Meanwhile, the agency is negotiating a contract with downtown developer Tony Giarratana to sell a data center next to its downtown location. 

YMCA memberships there grew from 7,004 to 13,733 people from October 2013 to October 2019. Officials are considering ways to expand programming at their 1000 Church Street facility. 

But the agency's smaller building at 900 Church Street has been largely empty for several months since data operations were relocated because of construction impacts from the 17-acre Nashville Yards development across the street.

Agree with Ron.    The mayor has nothing to do with zoning.    That’s Council and the Planning Commission.    Zoning height limits are a constant gripe on this board, but I never understand why.      Building height in this city, like every city, is driven by real estate cost per sf, market demand and ability to obtain financing.      In the central core, there are effectively no height limits, and outside the core, every legitimate request for a height variance that I can think of in recent years has been granted.    If you guys are aware of any projects in the core in the last couple of years that the city has rejected due to height limits, please share with us.   

Interesting how none of the people caterwauling could name which projects were downsized or affected otherwise by the city. This is because as stated the city doesn't do it. This is fascinating because there are posters who for over a decade have been caterwauling and natering that lie. 

It's all meme posting. Say the same thing over and over no matter how asinine it is and the guppy school will tag along and repeat it without thought.

^^If he could ever build this AND Siggy somewhere...his career would be complete.  He would definitely leave his mark.

505 alone is a mark enough. Impressive stuff.

If you're talking the current 505...then not so much.   But yes on the original 505 design.

I think the problem is that great designs cost more - a lot more - to build and the developers have to cut corners when their lenders get weak knees.  Places like Dallas and Austin don't seem to have that problem.  Wonder why.

Architect is Goettsch out of Chicago.

Makes sense. Same group as the Paramount Tower. Tony seems to be comfortable with that group. I selfishly wish he would use more local architects though haha :tw_innocent:

Not many folks who've built a 45 floor ultra modern skyscraper in Nashville. I'd say it's an achievement through and through that the building exists. Have you toured it and it's facilities?

I get what you're saying...and I'm happy it's there...but compared to his initial renders...almost all of his final construction is value engineered, which is disappointing, but understandable.  That's not to say I'm not 100% thankful for his developments.  Just wish he were able to complete at least one major project similar to his initial dreams.

      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.
