Can't wait for this one to rise.  It would give us our second really atypical skyscraper!!!!  And it's location  will help it stand out even more!  At least if and until 800 Lea and the Ritz rise.  I needed this permit news today after the Swerdling news yesterday.

*Circle South having to cancel their plans for Nashville's new tallest altogether after seeing somebody on the Nashville UrbanPlanet shared their sewage permits*

We finally have renderings for this massive project.  Only one shows the residential tower (looks to be 34 stories, about 330'), but the bulk of what has been released today is regarding the 30 story,

Well, yes, sort of.  But the editors must be on furlough or did not awake from their slumber long enough to detect this typo in a headline today on page 8A.

I'm gonna bump this asking about the article regarding the residential building at the northeast corner of Drexel and 8th Ave South. I don't have access to the paywall (on my financial wish list), but is this indeed part of this development?

Stupid question (but I'm having one of those days): Is this a project that has already been announced?  Sorry  B2N... I see you're asking the same.

Woah!  And that drawing doesn't even show Giarratana's and the Ritz twins!  That intersection will be reminiscent of the 3 blocks in Denver where the "cash register" tower and others meet at angles.

It shows the Ritz twins, it used the one KVB design as a placeholder it seems. Interestingly pegs the height at 567’.

It will pass.

I tend to agree, pretty much every non-historic parcel on that side of 8th has already been been granted more height, or has more height by right than what is being asked for.

While I know we can't have affordable housing mandates, I wish we would see more 3-bedroom units in these buildings around the city. I know developers don't like them because they are harder to rent, but if we want to work with the "supply model" having more 3-bedrooms will help the affordable crisis. I wonder how much the state would balk at the Downtown Code having a section about residential buildings need 10% (easy round number, no significance to it) 3-bedroom units. It would certainly drive down the number of 1 and 2 bedroom units, but it would certainly add a lot more "family" units to these buildings.

A work around the 3-bedrooms is to have 2 bedrooms plus a large alcove as part of the living room, which can be converted into a 3rd bedroom if needed. Developers can charge more for that flexibility, too. The same design can be done for 1 bedrooms, too.

I do not know if the work around could be that if Barnes fund could be used to finance a certain % of the units along with TIF, then that would mandate affordable housing in that building. That could be a creative solution.

So what’s the reasoning behind basically unlimited height on one piece of land…and close by, only 11 stories?  What kind of zoning is that?

Two different sub districts. Yea I know your going to say that's crazy and I agree 100%

Love the wrapping of the garage! We would have to go looking for it to realize it was above ground. Not pleased with the amount of stucco, but with the cost of construction and what they spent on the land, this was an easy VE for the developer. Also really like the alignment of Drexel with Cannery Row. This should help with some traffic concerns. I wonder how much of a hassle another Hawk Signal would be to install (Somera Road is doing one just south of the CSX tracks) as there is alot of pedestrian traffic here.

If I’m remembering correctly, there is to be a traffic light installed at Drexel as part of the office tower project. This would allow for safer pedestrian crossing on the north side of the bridge.

Lincoln Properties wants to put up another (3rd) mixed use office tower.   It's becoming apparent that developers around the country know that companies like the one from California/Georgia this week are looking for new HQ office space.  So with the slanted building... the 19(20) story residential and this one (530+k s.f.) it's going to be quite dense at that location.

This was all posted on Friday and the NBJ just got around to reporting it.

      Brentwood-based GBT Realty wants to build a two tower (one that could go as high as 20 stories tall) complex near the intersection of West End Ave., Murphy Road, and I-440. To be called 3415 Murphy, it will include 250,000 sq. ft. of Class A office space, 175 hotel rooms, 30,000 sq. ft. of restaurant/retail, and a parking garage on the 1.5 acre site at 3415-3419 Murphy Rd.  The retail/restaurant space would front Murphy Rd., and the hotel/office towers would be toward the back of the lot, along I-440. 

      No renderings as of yet, other than the schematic layout below. Project cost and financing are not clear yet.  Proposed completion date is 2022. Metro Planning Commission is scheduled to review the plan Aug. 9.  The commission's votes are non-binding on Metro Council, where 3 majority votes must occur in order for a requested zoning change to become law.

      2nd & Peabody will be a two tower complex (one at 38 stories/618 ft. with a hotel and office space; the other at 33 stories/456 ft. featuring additional hotel and residential) on the 2.2 acre full block at 507 2nd Ave. South and 203 Peabody St.  There will be street level retail in both structures, and at least 6 levels of underground parking beneath the whole block. At 618 feet, the first tower would become the tallest building in Nashville as well as Tennessee. 

      Congress Group will be the developer, buying the land at a currently undisclosed price from Mark Bloom/Larry Patel, who had loosely planned a hotel on the site for years.

      No word on how many units of hotel/residential in each unit, or sq. footage of office and retail space.  Nor is their word on hotel brands.

      Lea Ave. will be realigned in order to maximize the traffic flow. 

      Gresham Smith is the architect, and Hawkins Partners will handle engineering/land planning.
      The team will go before the Metro Planning Commission on March 11 to seek a height modification to the downtown code zoning currently in place on the site. Three nondescript buildings on the site will need to be razed.

      Renderings finally released for this Marriott brand extended-stay property for Towneplace Suites at 306 Gay St. (NW corner of Gay and 3rd Ave. North).  Will have 156 suites, and it appears the main entrance will face Gay Street.  A rooftop amenities deck is also featured.  The team will go before Metro Planning Code Design Review Committee on March 1, 2018.  

      https://www.nashvillepost.com/business/development/article/20991926/images-released-for-marriott-hotel-eyed-for-downtown

      Overall, I think this is a handsome design.


       
      Here's the uniquely shaped lot this will be built on.  The long portion will be facing Gay Street, featuring street activation.  Also remember that the same developer purchased the octagon-shaped building immediately to the left. Something taller (8-12 stories) could end up there.  

       
      This is the current building that will come down:
