Anyone want to take a guess as to how many floors this baby will be? 347,000 sq ft. This is the lot next to the Hampton Inn.

A proposal my firm looked at was 9 stories at about 230,000 sf (nearly breaking the skyplane). I would guess this would be around 14 stories depending on the footprint.

I agree 10-15 stories although I would like to see 20!

Very exciting project. Now lets see if it ever gets built as we have been very disappointed lately with the Westin, WES, Signature, Lionstone, Griffin Plaza, Sounds Struever Bros Project, Eakin Twin Towers, The "W" Hotel, Pine Street Lofts, etc...

Here was my pitch. This was before it was bought by someone else, though.

Good find. I like the green tinge on that building!

It's not a find. It's just something I did.

And for reference, that was nearly 200,000 sf and was 9 stories.

First mistake: Using the word "just." Second mistake, not using the word "impressive." That's an awesome render. Add 4-7 stories at different places, make it more The West End-y and I think it's a winner.

I hope the new project is a lot more street friendly. Elliston Place is in a vibrant, walkable community and needs more provisions for retail businesses and entertainment venues accessible directly from the street.

I know this is an incessant mantra used by some to criticize all office block projects to a point where it just becomes silly. But in this area, the demand for such services is high. There are very few street fronts near here where there is no retail on the major roads. However, in the Mid-town/Vanderbilt area, if you build it,they will come.

I am disappointed in only six stories, not much of a view of Vanderbilt, Centennial Park, or the Parthenon, but its better than the vacant lot. At six stories, it should have some nice detailed human scale architecture and better than some of the other apartment buildings in the area.

This is a key site for improving the character and direction this mix use area is heading. A six story building is an reasonable scale building for the area at this time. If the program is for about 300 apartments that would be a great addition to this transitional midtown area. Hopefully the building will build up to the sidewalk and have the parking structure totally hidden in the rear. The area has a good start in mix use and is walkable to Vanderbilt, Baptist, and the park. Hopefully if this project happens it will a more urban site plan than the adjacent suburban looking hampton inn. Apartments at this time are in demand and are economically feasible.

Yeah disappointed with the height, but how tall is the building with Flemmings, B&N, etc.? Definitely welcome in the area.

The rendering is in today's Tennessean. They say six stories which would say it will be a concrete building. I think 5 stories is the limit for stick frame (lumber) construction. I think its a nice rendering.

Is it only in the print edition? Can't find it online.

Here's the rendering from the paper. Sorry about the quality; it was a small image on newsprint. I'm guessing a building of this size and as long as it is will be quite impressive. The 500 or so folks basing their lives there will do much to further activate the street...probably in ways Elliston has never yet seen. Quite a welcome addition.

      The old Ramada Inn turned failed Duke Condo project turned failed boutique hotel by Graduate Hotels, is in the process of being demolished.  It appears everyone has given up at this point on trying to save the bones of this building and it's going to be razed for a 342 unit apartment complex and parking deck.  The design is being handled by CLINE Design on behalf of Alliance Residential out of Charlotte.

      Armada Hoffler proposing land swap for City Hall relocation to Town Center

      Bunglaower reports a 13-story multi-family residential tower is being proposed for 108 E. Livingston Street called Magnolia Rose. 
      The proposed 320 unit development would also include space for six parcels of ground-level retail. The plan, submitted on 4/20, calls for the City to abandon a section of North Rosalind Avenue, which translates to approximately 77,982 SF of right-of-way, to host an adjoined five-story, 395-space parking garage.

      New apartment complex coming to a six-acre plot of land. Rent will range from about $600-1,000, and eventually single-family homes will be built nearby.

      I'm guessing this is right off the Campostella Bridge, across from the Hardee's. There used to be a Farm Fresh there overlooking the water.

      Hey All,
      I'm moving from Boston to Tallahassee for a job that may be as short as 1 month or as long as 10 months. I think an extended stay hotel in Tallahassee could be a good option for me. The Value Place chain has two locations in the city, which is about $800 or so a month. Does anyone else have a recommendation for other extended stay hotels between $700-$900 in the area?
