This is mystery tower number two I have know about for a while as well. 300 Plus Units 316 Feet Tall Developer: Scenic Investments More at Nashville Post here: https://www.nashville

Scenic Investments and the Orbison Building folks have brokered a deal in their dispute about the new structure being built too close.  There will now be a 15 foot gap (triple from the previous design

I am confused by the renderings... so which one is the proposal? I actually like the first one b/c it's not so uniform in the balconies. Don't think they're different angles b/c they both have the top floor (cupola) on the same (left) side. And aerial (hover) view shows a bit of a pedestal that I don't see translated in the side view renderings.

Painted with Anton when I first came to Nashville some 60 years ago. There used to be a warehouse down by the river with an open air platform that stuck out over the river and we would set our easels up on it and do river scenes. This was when he did representational art.

We now know that there will be 440 apartments in the structure, along with 5,000 sq. ft. of ground level retail, and a 10,000 sq. ft. Sound Lab collaborative workspace. The building’s rents will be “attainable to those earning less than the median income in Nashville” according to a press release, but does not offer specific per-foot pricing. 

Also, the owners of the Orbison Building directly to the SW of this proposed project are angry that the design will completely block all the windows, as the new structure's parking garage will feature a blank wall at least 8 stories high, and just 4' from their windows.  Looks like there is going to be a fight leading up to the Metro Planning Commission vote to approve in late June.

Specs of the Orbison complaint:

  • The proposed development violates city rules designed to protect Music Row sight lines.
  • The apartment complex's seven-story parking garage would block much of the Orbison building's natural light. 
  • Scenic Investment's request for a special Music Row exemption to build a taller building would require a dedication to both music and historic preservation. According to Fleckenstein, "less than 1%" of the building is dedicated to music preservation, through an experimental sound lab, and none to historic preservation.
  • The new building's plan would send traffic onto Oribson's property.

      A massive 14.5 acre mixed-use project to be called Skyline East will populate the western edge of McFerrin Park, facing Dickerson Pike (where it parallels I-24) at Joseph Avenue.  It could involved numerous 6 to 15 story structures, 1,400 residential units, and 500,000 sq. ft. of commercial/office space, as well as parking decks.  This will be the largest project of its kind in East Nashville. No renderings as of yet.

      Currently there are 212 apartments and townhomes on the site (some of them Section 8 Housing).

      The technical addresses include 301 North 2nd St., 651 and 660 Joseph Ave. Riverchase bought the 3 parcels that make up the site in 2017 for $1.2 million.
      “Riverchase Holdings LLC is excited to be part of the planning and revitalization of the Dickerson Pike corridor and East Nashville community," said Scott Morton, an associate at that firm. "The 15-acre site is located at the 'gateway' to Dickerson Pike and is well positioned to set the tone for quality redevelopment on the corridor."
      Morton said the group has participated in ongoing workshops Metro's Planning Department is hosting to create concensus on what future development should look like along Dickerson Pike. Metro's Planning Commission could adopt a final plan this summer at their June 13 meetings
      Morton said the Skyline East proposal "is consistent with the theme and intent of community recommendations."

      Zach Liff's DZL Management along with partner developer Draper &  Kramer have unveiled ambitious plans for the Cummins Station area properties that cover 13 acres, most of which are surface lots surrounding the iconic massive office space converted from a railroad warehouse.

      Eventually, it could end up being as many as 8 towers. The initial foray will be a series of 31-34 story towers along the east side of the CSX tracks in the Gulch, bordered by Demonbreun St. on the north and Cannery Row on the south.

      Smith Gee Studios and Solomon/Cordwell/Buenz will be the architects.

      A Set. 2019 groundbreaking is planned for Tower 1. 

      No price tag has been put on the project.

      And behind theNBJ paywall here:


      This is the Phase 1 Tower, which will be just to the southeast  of Cummins Station, hugging the CSX tracks to the west, and just to the northeast of the proposed Gulch Pedestrian Bridge on the west side of the intersection of 10th Ave. South and Lea Ave.  It will be 31 stories/369' tall, with 333 residential units, 10,200 sq. ft. of ground level retail, and a 360 capacity parking in a garage within a 7 story pedestal.



      Tower 2 will be nearly a twin of Tower 1, just to the south,  with its southern border the Cannery Row area.  It will also be residential in focus at 31 stories with a 360 capacity garage.

      Towers 3 & 4 will each be 34 stories.  #3 will feature a hotel as well as residential, and #4 will be residential.  Each will feature garages that will hold a minimum of 420 cars. 
      Future phases will include at least 2 towers of undetermined size on the Union Station Railroad Shed site (currently surface parking), at least one tower on the surface lot at SE corner of Demonbruen and 10th Ave. South, and a tower at the apex of Lea Ave. and Palmer Place, immediately to the NW of the 30 story 805 Lea residential tower about to get underway by another developer.  In total, the plan is for at least 8 towers, as well as a few shorter structures.
