I swear….if he builds this only a few feet lower than Batman…I’m gonna be angry.  Someone needs to be man enough to at least go 1 inch over Batman and get this “height war” started. :lol:

I tell ya ... if only we could come up with a billion, we could show em what 1400 feet looks like!

Call me crazy, but I'm holding out hope that his hush hush mystery tower (that only he and Smeags know about) will be......."The One."  (cue golden harps and platinum trumpets)

Unsure, but that is sort of a mute point since he has spent a ton of money for this project. He is also working on another project at another site.

You have to remember a lot of these project like the original 505 CST were designed with the specific site in mind.

So we do not know what the other project is or where it will be, however I have a strong idea of where, we will have to wait and see what it will look like. I will lay some good money down that it will be taller than 612’.  That’s just my opinion though.

It’s ok, if you know something about an other tower. We understand if you need to keep it under lock & key. Just hoping it’s something that will blow our minds!

The Metro Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee requested Tuesday continued refining of the ground-level form and function for a luxury residential skyscraper proposed for the SoBro roundabout.

According to a source, Giarratana officials Ted Kromer and Morgan Stengel made this morning’s presentation to the MDHA DRC. The Metro entity approved the original curvilinear building design, the west elevation materials, the traffic access study and plans, and an added pedestrian sidewalk from the roundabout.
The company was asked to send to the MDHA DRC:  1) additional renderings of the back-of-house (western facing) segment of the building and bike storage doors; 2) a rendering of the gallery space that does not include any digital displays.

Is this good news?

      1010 Church St. will be a partnership between Tony Giarratana and the Downtown YMCA that will feature a 60 story, approx. 750' residential tower (Nashville's new tallest) of 500 units, and a 7 story, 60,000 sq. ft. addition to the downtown health club facility.  Older portions of the existing Y will be demolished to make way for the new elements on the .9 acre site. The YMCA addition that was built in 2008 on the north side of the complex will remain and be open during construction. 
      There will be 360 for-rent apts., and 140 condos above them in the tower.

      Goettsch Partners out of Chicago will be the architects.

      Work is set to get underway in January of 2023. The YMCA portion will be complete by June of 2024. The residential tower should be partially open by July of 2025.

      Tony Giarratana is under contract to purchase the .43 acre site at the SE corner of Rosa L. Parks Blvd. and Church St. from Speedwagon Enterprises for an undisclosed price in order to build another apartment tower that he says will have at least 350 units. No further specs yet, but Goettsch Partners will be the architect (just like at 900 Church Tower) and Barge Design Solutions will be involved with engineering.  No renderings yet.
      "Our contract on 801 Church was only recently executed, so our drawings are trailing behind the 900 Church drawings by about nine months," Giarratana said.
      The tower at 900 Church St. will not have parking — it's not required under the property's downtown code zoning.
      The tower at 801 Church St. will have a parking garage, for tenants of that building and "to accommodate whatever parking demand we might have at 900 Church," Giarratana said.
      "Keep in mind, Amazon is not encouraging employees who have a personal automobile. Neither will we be encouraging residents who have a personal automobile," Giarratana said. "This is a new day for Nashville. Given the fact that we don’t have the $5 billion necessary to execute a public transportation plan, it’s going to be incredibly important that the employees at these downtown companies walk to work and don’t introduce their car into the traffic mix at peak times."
      He added: "We don’t think 'live-work-play' is a cliché. That is exactly the lifestyle we’ve been seeking to create downtown."

      A 34 story residential tower at 900 Church St. is being planned for a Summer 2022 opening by Tony Giarratana on the .31 acre lot at 900 Church St. It should stand at least 400 feet in height. No word on how many units, or if there is a parking garage included.

      This thin block is now inhabited by the 1 story YMCA of Middle Tennessee admin building, which has no historical significance. It is also just one block east of the twin Amazon towers currently under construction as part of the Nashville Yards development.
