*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.

Sounds like a great time to take you for drinks. I’m sure a couple whisky drinks would get you talking 

Ply him Subkyle, ply him!!!!  It's been a couple weeks since any big announcement.  I'm spoiled and ready!  Of course, I'd be happy if we just got started (in earnest) with a couple that are proposed/approved.

Love this.  I only wish they could've added something addressing the roundabout with a curve.  Tony G's building is fully curved and even the Ritz looks like they're doing a 3 story curvature aspect.  The MCC is curved at the roundabout also, so Circle South will be the only one that's not.  Oh well, still a great building.  Also, it looks like the brochure lists the height as 443 feet.

Is that 443 ft including the underground parking? If so then it won’t look as tall as 443 ft.

Office tenants care about efficiency for their businesses, and curved office floors, while cool, usually don't work.

I do think that the Ritz Carlton will block some great views of Batman Building and Sobro, but parts of CBD will still be visible.

The 443” would be about right with what the have listed as floor 10 is 125’ above grade and seems to be about 20’, so that means that floors 1-9 would be 125’ and floors 11-30 would be 292’ if they have a 14.6’ slab to slab height.

So floor 10 is more like 25’.

Know most of the renderings have been from the circle side, but I can't wait to see what this + the Ritz looks like driving up Lafayette.

So 443’ official height for this project off documentation we have so far? I will update tube Wikipedia if so

      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.

      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.

      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:
