How do you think Nashville will change over the new year?

21 posts in this topic

I read a Tennessean article early this morning that tells how the new year wont shoe any slow down in growth based on all the recent developments under way or planned.

Here is the link to the Tennessean article : http://tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/articl...lkhC9MPp+Yf8%3D

How do you think Nashville is going to fair over the new year?

I personally think we will see that number the mayor has set for downtown population at least halfway met.

and I also see the Signature tower begining construction, along with the new Bass Berry tower at the Shelby Bridge foot

By the end of the year, I see (pure crystal ball stuff);

Downtown

The 70 story Signature Tower underway

The Suntrust completed

The new bus transfer center well underway

SoBro

20 story Westin well underway

The ballpark underway and a 15 story connected Condo.

The SoBro site for the Convention Center selected and all financing in place (a done deal)

Two hotels (30+ floors each) to serve the Convention enter area are announced.

The 32 story Crown underway.

Several mixed use mid-rises announced

Rolling Hill Mill at the old General Hospital well underway

The Gulch

The 22 story Icon topped out

The 14 story Terrazzo well underway

The Velocity in the Gulch underway

Midtown/West End

The 18 story Adelicea opened

The Hotel part of the West End Summit underway

The 14 story Rythm Lofts underway

A surprise high rise cond (20 stories +/-) is announced

The W Hotel (25 +/- stories) at the roundabout underway.

Light rail along West End is looked at more seriously and moves closer to reality

Vanderbilt builds something

Other

More East Nashville mid-rise developments announced

The Gallatin Road/5 Points streetscape with roundabout plan moves closer to fruition.

Anybody notice the sidebar content for 2008 developments? It says Tony Giarratana's gulch project phase I will be nearing completion... and what's the unnamed project in the gulch? Has that one even been rumored? Of course, this is the Tennessean, and it's subject to verification in a big way.

Then, there's this odd rumor. But, I don't know about the source...

There was a conceptual drawing that was on his website last year. The plans I saw were a multi tower development that connected with Church st. This is on the Polar storage site. I am glad to see that he is moving forward with that project. Needless to say, Tony is going to be a busy man.

Thanks for posting that image. I couldn't find the orignal paper to scan/post it. I think more than anything the image shows approximate massing of what might be feasable, rather than any specific building plans. Notice what I believe is the corner of 11th and Charlotte; a parking lot? Surely not.

He might not own that property. Surely he realizes he can make a bigger profit by building something than by putting a parking lot there.

^ I believe he owns the entire Polar Storage property, not a portion of the building. Currently it's one big structure that stretches from Charlotte Ave to Church Street. Glad to see this end of the gulch getting some attention. Hope it spreads further north of Charlotte, into what I believe is one of the seediest/sadest/underused areas abutting downtown.

Hmmm, maybe he wants to put a park there. There aren't any parks in the gulch, I don't think.

I would really think that he would make this affordable. I don't think he'll want to try to fill two huge luxury projects at one time. High-end housing is just about topped out here.

I predict in a year that everyone will still be wondering if West End Summit will ever be built.
