2416 West End, 27 stories, 374 ft., 320 residential units; 31,5000 sq. ft. retail; 13,040 sq. ft. restaurant; underground garageBy markhollin
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.

Parke West, 3415 Murphy, 15 story residential (210 units), 9 story dual brand hotel, 19,000 sq. ft. of retail, underground garageBy markhollin
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.

19th and Broadway; 347 Apts. (295 ft, 26 stories), 16 story/200 room Frye Hotel, 3,500 sq. ft. ground retail, garageBy PHofKS
Work is scheduled to begin this month (July, 2016). Some pertinent facts:
From Metro project tracker, heights are officially 255 ft for Apartments and 188 ft for Hotel The existing house is to be demolished and rebuilt near the Marathon Motorworks complex One half block off West End and will have a significant impact on the Mid-town skyline
My own crude mock-up.
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.

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.
