  • smeagolsfree changed the title to 1601 Broadway 316" 300 Plus Units

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.

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.
