I am still trying to determine the height allowed a the UDO is a pain to figure out in Green Hills. I was trying to figure it out Saturday and this is not my bailiwick.  I think its between 10 and 15 depending on the set back. I know there is a parcel that is on Hillsboro that by rights can go 20.


Maybe one of you guys that deals with the UDO's and such that knows the codes really well can figure it out for me. I am doing way too much to try and spend a ton of time on it.

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.”

Isn't there a plan for fixing the cluster f--k dogleg at that intersection with H'boro and RJ Rd. and over to Abbott Martin?  Still think it'd be well worth the investment if Metro brokered a deal to swap land with the owners of the land that used to be Davis Kidd Bookstore so that RJ Rd. could connect over to Bandywood. I remember thinking that 30 years ago when I was driving around Green Hills, just thinking how awful that roads are laid out.

      I have adapted this link for the previous ONE KVB Tower for the new development on the 1.4 acre site: Ritz Carlton Towers (42 and 42 stories,  240 rooms, 150 condos, 185 apts,),  560 capacity garage.  Renderings, more info begin on page 14 of this thread.

      Here is all the info on the previous plan for the site:
      Mainland Companies will finally get rolling on their 1.3 acre site in SoBro for a 30 story, 475,000 sq. ft. office building that will include 25,000 sq. ft. of retail space, and 1,200 space parking garage. The triangular lot sits on the SE corner of the Music City Center Roundabout where Korean Veterans Blvd. and Lafayette Street intersect. They purchased the land for $9.4 million over several transactions in the last three years. Cost will probably be in the $200 million range.  Initial renderings on Page 3 of this thread.

      Mainland has retained the Chicago office of architect Skidmore Owings & Merrill. The Nashville real estate brokerage firm Avison Young will oversee marketing and leasing.

      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.

      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.

      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-year-old, 3 story Federal Reserve Bank Building at 226 3rd Ave. North. It would include restoring much of the original structure as part of a new hotel. No word yet on brand, or how many rooms, although the added structure will take up 46,700 sq. ft. on the new levels. 

      The documentation is a bit unclear---the renderings show an 8 story addition, and yet some elements talk about 12 more stories.

      This will be across the street from the planned 11 story addition for the Indigo Hotel on top of the 118 year old Nashville Trust Building (which has been approved).

      Miller will go before the Metro Planning Commission on Thursday, April 9, to request an overall height modification for the property above the 6 levels of new development allowed by current codes for that neighborhood.
