Entrepreneur Bill Miller (Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline Museums, House of Cards, Nudie's Honkey Tonk, Skull's Rainbow Room, Sinatra's, etc.) wants to build a 16 story, 143 ft. addition on top of the 98-

This project is now being referred to as The Federal Reserve Hotel, according to documents turned into MDHA Design Review Committee which will be meeting soon to approve bonus height which will add 16

I actually like that juxtaposition of old and new.  Glad to see this architectural gem is being preserved and renewed for public use, and I love the austere look of the lobby.   I think the design is

I thought I remembered reading somewhere that this building was being used as a private residence - until recently, it seems. Am I making that up?

Yes, it was a private residence.     The building was owned by members of the Choi family (JJ's Market) and one of their sons lived there for a while.

Ooooooh.... I bet some folks in the Stahlman won't be happy about losing their view of downtown. 

But I love this proposal! Keeping a classic building as a base but expanding on top is a great idea. From the alley, you can see inside this building and it seems to have been deteriorating over the past few years. I'm glad it's being repurposed.

I went to a couple of neighborhood events there when I lived downtown and it was the Choi residence. Beautiful old building.

At the request of the developer, the MDHA Design Review Committee deferred on a vote for the concept plan and approval of additional height for the hotel.  Bill Miller wanted further discussion from all involved.  No word yet n when a decision will be made.

One issue in tying the buildings together is Metro's insistance that the new addition NOT look like the historic portion. It eleminates a lot of options and creates a lot of frustration for designers.

Look at the new hotels along 4th - Dream & Noelle. Both have very modern additions.

I believe the intent is just that. Many times when dealing with historic structures the charge is to create a visually different addition. The goal is to maintain the significant characteristics of the historic structure, but create something that ties into the new context around the structure and keeps the historic structure visible. It's a tricky situation for designers as we are always trying to maintain the historic qualities of a structure like this. Think about the hotel structure being built around the firehouse over in Rutledge Hill, if the new structure blended to the materiality and palette of that firehouse, the firehouse would probably be a bit lost in the whole project.

      GBT Realtors is planning a 27 story, 370 ft. mixed-use tower that will be primarily residential at 2416 West End Ave., at the split with Elliston Place.  There will also be significant restaurant and retail space on the first to floors, and 5 levels of underground parking. Some advance documents state that, all told, the structure will entail 556,000 sq. ft. 

      GBT paid $8.1 million for the for the former Smoothie King/Rite Aid buildings closest to the intersection, and has the additional .87 acre made up of Emma's Flowers, Gyros Kitchen Greek Cafe, and Rotier's Grille under contract for undisclosed prices.
      There will be a small green space at the split, and a new driveway on the far eastern part of the site that will connect West End and Elliston Place.
      “Our priority has been on architectural design and pedestrian safety improvements, including upgrades at four surrounding intersections that GBT would fund,” says Fiona Haulter of GBT. “Through discussions with Metro Public Works, the Metro Parks Department, the Centennial Park Conservancy and Vanderbilt, we have identified opportunities to increase safety, accessibility and walkability to and from Centennial Park, Vanderbilt and businesses in the area.”
      Haulter said designs are still preliminary and that GBT is seeking “an exceptional and iconic design that is worthy of this gateway location.”

      Gresham Smith is the architect. They and GBT will go before Metro Planning Commission in July to request specific plan zoning for the site.

      Eden House will be a minimum 10 story residential tower with probably 200 units being planned by GBT Realty for the site of the former Green Hills Fire Station on .87 acre at 2025 Richard Jones Rd, immediately to the north of Vertis Green Hills (18 stories, opened in 2018). 

      GBT will soon hold a community regarding the plans says Metro Councilman Russ Pulley, in whose this district it would be built. He said the name Eden is derived from one of the original streets in Green Hills, while “House” references the former Nashville Fire Station building (pictured) sitting on the site.
      Neither renderings nor the future building's height has been released yet.
      GBT emailed the Nashville Post a statement noting Eden House will be "a high-end residential project that will complement Green Hills with ground-floor retail and restaurants to increase connectivity and walkability along Richard Jones Rd.”

      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.

      Cypress Real Estate Advisors is under contract to buy 2.2 acres  from New Orleans-based investor group led by Brian Gibbs to build 1 or 2 towers that would include  350,000 sq. ft. of office space and 400 residential units.  Tentative name is 10th & Lea. No word on the cost of the transaction, the size of the buildings, financing, etc. 

      The site is nearly rectangular in shape, bordered by Ninth and 10th Avenue South, Clark Place and Lea Avenue. It's diagonally behind the JW Marriott and consists of the parking lots at 810 Lea Ave. and 310 10th Ave. S., as well as a two-story brick building at 300 10th Ave. S.

      Primarily all of the lot is surface parking at this time, but it does include the historic 2 story, 33,500 sq. ft., brick structure built in 1926.  One would hope they will incorporate this building into their plans.
