I can't help but think there will be some opposition to tearing down the corner building. I passed it so many times over my 60 years in Nashville. It wasn't a building you always just passed by, but because of the stoplights and street layout, you almost always got a good look at it.

I wish it could have been incorporated in some way into the new design, but I get that it was never very likely.

The Firestone building? I get that it is old with some art deco design cues, but also having driven by it many times it mostly just struck me as an abandoned service station. Not sure it has the emotional appeal to drum up much opposition.

It sure doesn't look like much in terms of architecture.  It may be old but I can't imagine why anyone would be opposed to tearing it down and I don't see anything worth keeping as far as history is concerned!

It’s a great design, but I agree that brick would look so much better. New Vandy and the Graduate killing it in Midtown. I understand that it’s cost efficient, but I’m pretty over glass towers.

Gorgeous design and will be a great addition to the mini-skyline surrounding Centennial Park. Last time I was at the Smoothie King, I thought the existing building was a little interesting, but not anything special.

Looks like there's no plan to alter the odd intersection of 25th/Elliston and West End?

The intersection is addressed in the document Smeagolsfree linked. Apparently that intersection was studied/modeled and the current configuration is better than the alternatives.

      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.”

      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.

      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.

      Cypress Real Estate Advisors is under contract to buy 2.2 acres  from New Orleans-based investor group led by Brian Gibbs to build 1 or 2 towers that would include  350,000 sq. ft. of office space and 400 residential units.  Tentative name is 10th & Lea. No word on the cost of the transaction, the size of the buildings, financing, etc. 

      The site is nearly rectangular in shape, bordered by Ninth and 10th Avenue South, Clark Place and Lea Avenue. It's diagonally behind the JW Marriott and consists of the parking lots at 810 Lea Ave. and 310 10th Ave. S., as well as a two-story brick building at 300 10th Ave. S.

      Primarily all of the lot is surface parking at this time, but it does include the historic 2 story, 33,500 sq. ft., brick structure built in 1926.  One would hope they will incorporate this building into their plans.
