Project Thread/New Construction/Photo du jour/Const. CAMs

Recommended Posts

If I could pluck any building I wanted and stick it in Nashville it would be Atlanta's 191 Peachtree Building.

With all due respect, I think 191 PT is hideous. It does have nice height. But puhhleeaze... that double cupola is just idiotic looking (IMO of course).

Just wanted to start a thread where we can list any groundbreakings, updates, and cranes going up. Everywhere I look in midtown, I see a crane...DT's next?

There's a crane up at the 1109 18th Ave site for the 7-story condo tower. Crane at Adalecia.

Several things to let you guys know if.

First, it looks as if the Shoney's on Demonbreun may be about ready to come down. There is a large piece of machinery right behind the rest. and looks as if it could do the damage.

Across the street, it looks as if the Rhythm lofts sales office is getting ready to be in action soon. Large sign.

On 31st Ave. , another condo project from Regent right below the Artie Lee. This one is the Ruby May. Where do they get these names. :lol:

I'm ready for that "W" Hotel project to get started. If they're ready to tear Shoney's down, maybe a project for that piece of property is closer than I thought.

I beleive they're hoping to get Rhythm Lofts (13 to 14 stories) started before the end of this year....Yet another tower crane for Nashville!

Encore crane is up but will go higher. Has maybe 80 to 100 feet of height so far.

Not to mention the Icon will have 2 cranes. Both bases on site now.

I watched the tower crane rise a bit this morning downtown at the Encore site. It was an amazing study in hydraulics. These pics were taken rather early and a few hours later the crane was LOTS higher than these photos indicate.

The bonus photos are of the 4th Avenue side of the Schermerhorn and one from the bridge with the Mississippi Queen at dock. I love that photo. It was in the process of being refueled and yellow cabs were returning lots of passengers back from wherever they'd been.

It was an interesting morning.

I believe the Encore crane is at its total height now, I saw it when I drove downtown today.

The crane is tall, but its not to tall to make such a big deal about the other proposed towers in the area.

There are cranes EVERYWHERE!!!! :w00t:

Why will ICON have two cranes?

I'm assuming because it's so long. It would take forever to build something that massive with just one crane, and I bet the developers want to get this thing up as soon as possible.

I posted the construction trailers were on site at Terrazzo.

We have had a few thread like this. maybe we can get it tagged

Those are actually the trailers for the ICON. They just happen to be on the Terrazzo property for now.

speaking of Tezarro whats the deal on that project. They had ground breaking quite a while ago you would have thought that they would have already started.

We all know the Encore crane just went up with two Icon cranes up next, but whats next in line?

Nashville has some good density going on. I had no idea the Veridian was so close to the L & C. Does anyone know how close those two buidings are.

That's sounds right Dave. When we were atop the L&C, I was trying to gauge the distance and that if I had to, would I be able to make the jump. (Sorry to bring up bad images tomcampion). Which reminds me. Any Hitchcock fans out there? Saw Vertigo this week end. Classic! I'll refrain from making the obvious joke. Sorry Hankster.

Oooh, I love "Vertigo." 'Cept, I also HAVE vertigo (labyrinthitis). :cry:

Just guessing, others know more than I, but at the parking base, about 6 inches, and residential balconies are about 15 feet from the L&C.

6" may be generous. This is how close it is to the adjacent Cohen Building. It's about the same on the other side next to the L&C.
