North Gulch Gateway (Tennessean site), Phase I: Asurion HQ (10 & 11 stories, 551,000 sq. ft., 9,000 sq. ft. retail, 1,900 car garage, $285 million)By markhollin
A team of Nashville’s biggest office landlord and a Gulch-area investor has been picked to negotiate a contract toward buying The Tennessean’s 10-acre downtown property.
Upon finalizing the more than $55 million transaction, Raleigh, N.C.-based Highwoods Properties and Jim Caden could separately develop the various parcels. The property includes where the newspaper’s office sits at 1100 Broadway and several parking lots.
Highwoods has a portfolio of more than 4.2 million square feet of Nashville area office space, including Bridgestone's 30-story world HQ, The Pinnacle at Symphony Place office tower, and the impending Mars Petcare HQ in at Ovation in Cool Springs. The company also developed Caterpillar Financial's headquarters on West End Avenue.
Caden developed the retail strip now known as Demonbreun Hill before moving on to buying properties in the Gulch where he co-founded restaurant group M Street and co-owns several properties including the Déjà Vu strip club site on Demonbreun Street.
Neither party has announced any specific plans for the property at this time.

Expansion of Tennessean HQ in 1985:
The Purpose Hotel, a brainchild of Nashville-based celebrity photographer Jeremy Cowart, seems to be moving forward. A rendering has been released of a 17 story tower that would, according to a 2016 article, feature 200-300 rooms with an $80 to 150 million price tag. A still undisclosed site for the boutique hotel in downtown Nashville has been chosen, and will be announced soon.
Coward has enlisted Atlanta-based WP Hospitality Group to manage the development, and Hastings Architecture is on board as the designer.
Some of the unique aspects of the hotel will be that every room booking will help support a different needy child in the developing world through a sponsorship agency. Info on each child will be featured in each room. Linens will be sewn by survivors of human trafficking. Art throughout the hotel will feature humanitarian artists. Ethnically sourced coffee in each room. Furniture created by people in need. Internet fees fight human trafficking. Inspiring social films will be featured on some TV channels in each room, as well as curated books with themes about compassion and justice. Soaps and shampoos handmade by women survivors of addiction, violence, and extreme poverty. The lobby will feature a working well for guests to experience sustainable water work.
Cowart initially launched the concept via a Kickstarter campaign, and raised nearly a million dollars to help fund designs, etc.

Original Tennessean article from 2016:
Centric Hotel, 20 stories, 252 rooms, 8,000 s. ft. retail, March, 2019 start, C.B. Ragland, 200 Molloy St. (2nd Ave South & Molloy)By markhollin
Nashville-based developer C.B. Ragland Co. has submitted plans to Metro regarding a hotel tower proposed for the SoBro site across Second Avenue to the west from its 222 2nd Ave. South Tower.
The proposed structure will rise at least 20 stories and is expected to offer a minimum of 250 rooms. No renderings available yet.
The team will go before the Metro Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee on Tuesday, Nov. 7, to seek approval of the concept.
The tower — which could sit on an L-shaped parking podium — would rise on the 0.5-acre site of the building last home to The Listening Room.
Discussions are being held with Hyatt properties.
Both of these stories are currently behind paywalls:

This is the current 1 story structure of no historic significance sitting on the lot. It housed the Listening Room Club for the past decade or so. That enterprise has relocated to 4th Ave. South and Elm St.
