From a recent NP article...

For the second time, North Edgehill Commons has seen a slight reduction in scale. It is now proposed to offer three eight-story buildings and two six-floors buildings. The buildings will feature 550 residential units, about 390,000 square feet of office space, a hotel with 200 rooms, 15,000 square feet of retail and some green space.

I might have missed it, but what is causing all these reductions in height?

Cost of materials? Cost of the overall project?

In general, neighborhood associations and zoning.

Planning staff is recommending disapproval of this project by the Planning Commission at the upcoming meeting on August 26th, unless the southern most buildings are reduced to 5 stories(for building C, the southern edge along Hawkins Street would need to be reduced to 5 stories instead of 8).

Thanks for sharing. While disappointing, it is a 1-story loss for two buildings and a partial 3-story loss for the third (Building C). My guess is when they say portions of C to be limited to 5 stories, they would want to see a 15'-0" minimum setback above 5 floors. 

I do find it frustrating that they want to limit E and D to 5 stories because that just tells me that the church parcel would be capped at 5 stories. While I think 5 stories is a great transition height we don't need a block and a half of height transition, hence my map further up thread about my height thoughts. 

That all being said, I do like the conditions from the transportation side

I hear Hackberry trees make good street trees. 

Hackberrys are actually considered junk trees I think although I have one in my backyard that is probably a 100 years old, however when it falls, it will not fall on the house.

Oh I know. We had one in our neighborhood in East Nashville that would leave terrible sap deposits all over my car.

Anybody get a chance to see the planning commission discussion last night? They were presenting on either an 8 story or 9 story option. 

I watched part of the deliberation last night. Didn’t see the vote. If it passed, which looked pretty likely, it will be the 8 story version.

I have no idea why this project has so much public backlash.

The backlash is coming from NIMBYs who live in the HPRs near the site. I get the traffic concerns, but that can be dealt with through traffic calming and other measures.

my complaint is the facade is ugly. 

We are in a growing city with big affordability/gentrification issues... Nashville will never be affordable and you will be priced out of your neighborhood if you are denying 9 story buildings over height/traffic concerns.

I think some of the loudest people on this one that I have experienced are not the ones with any concern on being priced out of the neighborhood.

Yep. They’re the people who priced the original residents out of the neighborhood. 

Fair. I guess my angst is directed more towards councilmembers.

      The 3.9 acre block at 825 6th Ave. South is under contract to be sold by Green & Little Real Estate for an undisclosed price to an unknown developer.  A water/sewer application shows 715 residential units (365 one bedroom, 326 two bedroom, and 24 three bedroom). 

      Dependent on layout (and there is plenty of land on the site a couple of towers could be anywhere from 20 to 30 stories when you factor-in parking garages. There is no mention of retail, commercial, office, or hotel on the application....just residential.   

      Several things to consider:

      1) If it is just a couple of structures, there could be a large amount of landscaped leisure area as an amenity for the residents.

      2) Perhaps this is only Phase I of a project that could include retail, office, hotel, etc. in Phase II.

      3) Maybe this will be more spread out with half a dozen 10 story structures.

      Conjecture is that the sale price for the land on the low end would be at least $25 million.  It was last purchased in 1993 for $1.2 million. 

      5 years ago Smithfield Properties out of Chicago proposed a 4 tower mixed-use project (with one being 40 stories)  for the site, but it fizzled out. 

      Kimley-Horn is listed as the civil engineer on the application.  No renderings or diagrams available yet.

      A 15 story, 345 unit residential tower with 2 retail slots on the ground floor is being planned for 1805 Church St. (SE corner of Church and 19th Ave. North) by Ascend Real Estate Group out of Chicago.  Smith Gee will be the architect.  Kimley-Horn is involved with engineering. The team will go before the Board of Zoning Appeals on Sept. 2 to request a special exception related to height and setback considerations.  

      Ascend will need to acquire the properties with addresses of 1815 Church St. (Advance Financial) and 120 19th Ave. N. (Royal Thai) from an LLC affiliated with Nashville-based Jarman Development Group. That entity paid $3.2 million for the properties in May.

      No renderings yet, but a basic footprint diagram is shown below.

      McGavock Street Partners will go before Metro Planning Commission on Dec. 14, 2017 to request height modification for a 21 story boutique hotel (no brand yet), that would have 470 rooms as well as a 200 seat entertainment venue.

      The location would be the NW corner of McGavock Street and 13th Ave. South (the frontage road along I-40/65 on the west side of downtown). Originally this was going to be a Staybridge Suites. The address is 1212-1218 McGavock St., and sits just south of the former Deja Vu site, which is now being considered for a 3 tower Endeavor project.
      The modernist design, by Manuel Zeitlin Architects, shown below, could help the developers gain the extra 5 stories (base allowed for that area is 10, plus bonus height of 6 more for parking/LEED allowances) due to an "exceptional design" clause that Metro has in it's codes.

      A large scale project listing "300 units" (not sure if residential or hotel) is being planned by an unknown developer for 810 Division St, according to water/sewer availability permits.  The site is currently owned by  RJ Young and has a 1 story nondescript/non-historical structure on the approx. 1.7 acre plot which sits just west of Party Fowl Restaurant.  No further designs or details yet.

      Based on the size of the lot and other similar sized residential/hotel structure in that area, this will probably be a 10-12 story project.

      The Lord & Liberty Hotel at 627 2nd Ave. South has released images and diagrams for the repurposing of the 1895-era Geddes Engine Company # 6 Fire House and a new 9 story addition that will be 115 feet tall. From the diagrams, it appears there will be about 80 rooms, along with a restaurant, bar, and meeting rooms.

      L & L Nashville LLC is the developer and other involved are Blur Workshop (architecture), Hawkins Partners (landscape architecture), Thomas & Hutton (engineering). They will go before  Metro Planning Commission's Downtown Code design review committee on Sept 10th to request modifications to zoning for the project that limits that neighborhood to 6 stories.
