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

Recommended Posts

Please correct me if I am mistaken, but this project does not have financing and is therefore not a go (even though demolition and excavation has begun), BUT...

if built, this building will look phenomenal from this vantage point.

If I were him...I'd go ahead and build it and make a deal with Amazon's employees (some special rate).  He'd have that thing booked up quickly, being just a block away.

I drove by yesterday and saw that the lot looks pretty deserted.  Even though I considered this project to be a slam dunk because of its location, now I'm starting to have my doubts.  I don't know what news Smeagolsfree knows, but I just have this overall sense of impending doom when it comes to any proposed project that has not broken ground.  Sad to say, but I won't be surprised if the "news" is a delay or cancellation of this project.

Maybe Tony is giving up the fight for Church Steet Park , and thinking to build Paramount tower on this site instead. It is a slender tower that would fit .

I don’t think that’s the case, but that would be awesome

That would be super unfortunate if so, and pretty wild considering it would be the second time that an international crisis derailed one of his big projects. It'd feel like the world doesn't want him building any tall skyscrapers downtown.

Of course it could be really positive news, so here's to hoping for the best

He has built a 45 floor residential tower on Church Street within the last five years, so the world ain’t always against him.

My fingers are crossed for good news coming! (Maybe another chunk of floors on top of that jenga tower by the YMCA—we can dream, eh?)

I thought he said a July groundbreaking was "eyed". He just announced the project 6 months ago. Just like most developments it may take two or three years for construction to start or fizzle out.

      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.
