What residential towers are planned for your city?

24 posts in this topic

During the last few years there are tons and tons of residential infill projects and smaller scale residential urban building conversions. I am wondering what large scale condo/apartment tower projects are on board, or just opened, for your metro or closest large city?

I'll start with mine

Columbus

20 story North Bank Condos

thetower.jpg

This will be Columbus' 2nd 15 plus condo tower in a few years. There are many many infill and conversion projects occuring but only one other large scale downtown residential tower has opened in recent years.

Completed in 2001 was the Marinova at 26 stories and it is Ohio's tallest residential structure.

There aren't any residential high-rises planned for Ann Arbor but my hometown of Nashville seems to have plenty.

The Signature Tower is still proposed but all is looking excellent for this project to break ground next year. It's height is still unknown but it'll likely be well over 800ft.

SigRender022306.jpg

The Viridian which is being topped off and rises 31 floors.

Picture9199a.jpg

ICON in the Gulch which broke ground just the other day at 22 floors in the Gulch district near downtown.

iconpicturelrg.jpg

The Terrazzo which is going next to ICON in the Gulch. I believe it's 14 floors.

terrazo.jpg

The Encore's final look is still up in the air since it's going right across the street fron Nashville new world-class symphony hall. Right now, it's 23 stories.

encoreaerial2.jpg

The Adelicia which I believe is 18 floors.

The West End which is set to go up near West End if approved.

Not only is it great that people are returning to urban cores, but the fact that progressive modern design is such a big part of these developments puts a big smile on my face. There are some really cool mod towers in this thread.

There are more than 2,000 units proposed for downtown Oklahoma City. A lot of the projects are highrise office building conversions, but so far no new residential towers, aside from a strange and mysterious mention of "250 highrise apartments" in Midtown in a Chamber of Commerce report...

A study showed demand for 12,000 units in downtown OKC, so I would wager we're just seeing the beginning of what's to come. I'm thinking a residential tower announcement by the end of the year.
