SoBro
A poster on UP posted this up and I thought I would share. It show's the dramatic transformation SoBro has undergone over the years since the Bridgstone arena was built. It also shows some of the projects in the pipeline that will continue to tranform the area.







The yellow building barely visible in the middle very left of the picture (just North of the Pinnacle tower) is the planned Hyatt Regency hotel. The $135 million project, the architect for which is Nashville-based ESa, will be a full service hotel with 450 rooms, and will also include 25,000 square feet of meeting space, 350 on-site parking spaces, as well as retail and dining. Pictured below...The tower is 17 floors and around 200ft. The developer has recieved TIF incentives from the city as well.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1664890



The other yellow building on the South side of the Pinnacle tower is the SoBro apartment tower, scheduled to start construction beginning of 2014. the 33-story tower is to feature 342 luxury rental apartment units, 378 parking spaces and more than 18,000 square feet of Class A office space. There will also be ground-level retail space as well. The tower (pictured below) should be around 400ft tall, and is projected to cost around $90-$100 million dollars to construct. The developer Tony Giarratana, has already secured funding for the tower.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1551210



The tall blue building right next to the yellow one is the proposed mixed-use tower code-named "Sheet Music." The 41 story curvilinear design consists of three main layers: parking, office space and 15 stories of residential or hotel rooms on top. The developer for this project, Tony Giarratana, (the same developer for the aparment tower above) is reported to be in talks with an international company for a headquarters that would anchor the 41-story high-rise (pictured below) in the SoBro area of downtown Nashville. No word on height or cost, but going off the floor count 500ft+ is to be expected. I would also estimate this project to cost around $150-$200 million dollars.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1662064



The orange colored building on the lower left is the recently announced mixed-use project for the old convention center site. The developers led by Cushman & Wakefield | Cornerstone and developer Pat Emery are planning to overhaul the footprint of the Nashville Convention Center into a complex that would comprise more than 1 million square feet.
The project (pictured below) was chosen from five options. It calls for $230 million of investment, led by an office tower of up to 840,000 square feet with 25-28 floors, as well as 244,000 square feet of retail and another 50,000 square feet for the National Museum of African American Music, which will face Broadway. The site would also get an underground parking garage.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1679486



The redish-orange building behind the Music City Center (convention center) is the Atlanta-based North Point proposal to bring two Marriott hotels to the area. The project is estimated to cost around $65 million dollars and consists of a 14-story 200-room Residence Inn by Marriott, and a 16 story 150-room SpringHill Suites by Marriott. Once completed in 2016, the two hotels and garage will offer 350 rooms and 250 vehicle spaces within an L-shaped configuration. North Point hopes to break ground on the project by the end of the year. No official render has been released as of yet, but the picture below of one of the projects the developer has done gives an idea on how this could turn out.

Here is some more info on the project...http://nashvillepost.com/news/2013/1...ated_for_sobro



Not visible in the picture of the proposals is the 11 story 150ft 200-room Hilton Garden Inn hotel on the opposite side of the Omni Hotel. The $40 million dollar project (pictured below) is currently under construction with the tower crane erected just a week or two ago.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1667166



Also not shown in the proposals picture of SoBro is the the 17 story 190ft, 400-room Marriott Marquis proposed by developer Tony Giarantanna. This building (pictured below) is to be located just next door to the large purple box on the lower right of the picture, right across the street from the Music City Center. The developer has recieved TIF incentives from the city, and has chosen global architect design firm Gensler to design the tower.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1670917



Another significant project slated for the SoBro area is the 30 story 400ft Westin hotel. This 400-plus room luxury hotel is going to be located on the West end side of the Music City Center, not shown in the proposals picture. The land for this project was recently purchased, and the developers are already releasing details about the development. The hotel is expected to be called Westin Music City Nashville, and should include a banquet facility, meeting rooms, two restaurants, two lounge bars – including one on the rooftop – and a pool. The render below is not the official render, and is one from another city. It just gives an idea on how the tower could look, and it happens to be 30 stories as well.

Here is the thread for this project...http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1665603

A picture taken this morning by nashvols showing the current progress of the 23 story luxury apartment/condo tower at 12th & Laurel in the Gulch. Appears to be on the 16th or 17th floor, so roughly 7 more to go.



Here is a render of the tower.

Cranes are now going up for the Hilton Garden Inn hotel in SoBro (downtown) and the Elliston apartment project (Midtown)

This isn't the tallest building or anything, but it will make quite an impact on the skyline given it's location and elevation.

Here is the other project the article mentions that cranes are being erected for in Midtown.

The Bank of Nashville is moving from the L&C tower to the new Gulch Crossings tower under construction. According to the article, they will have signage on the building also. This sign is in the rendering below as well if you can make it out.

Carried over from previous page

Well...Some good news and some bad news to report depending on how you look at it.

I'll start with the bad news first.

Some members on UP attended a Civic Design Center forum last night in which the developer of 505 CST (Tony Giarratana) and the architect for the project (Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill ) were in attendance. At this meeting two new designs were presented for the project. One is a residential tower, the other a mixed-use tower. The reason this is bad news (atleast to me anyways) is because the original design was absolutely stunning and unique compared to most other skyscrapers we typically see here in Nashville, and most other cities as well. Not to mention that it was aiming for a LEED platinum rating which would have made it the 2nd tallest office tower of it's kind in the country.

I only have pictures of one of the new renders at this time, but soon as I get ahold of the other one I'll share that as well. The one I'm posting below I believe is the residential tower, and not the mixed-use one.

This new design isn't bad or anything, but IMO it is a step backwards in terms of the design quality compared to the original office tower design. So basically that is the bad news.

The good news is that both of the new designs are taller than the original office tower proposal. The original 505 CST design was at 605ft. These two new designs are both 750ft+

This is what was said about the other new design (mixed-use tower) that I haven't been able to get a picture of yet, so you will have to just use your imagination for now. The way it was described it almost sounds kind of like the Trump tower in Chicago.

Quote:
The third mixed use building has a step up that is in three parts topping at the new height of 750 ft with retail all along 5th ave and also on church st with a large plaza to mirror the 5th/3rd building plaza.
It was said that all three of the designs were on the table, so that is a positve thing for sure as it still leaves the door open for the possibility of the original design to be built.

So with all that said...Here is one of the new designs presented.






Here is the original...












Me personally, I would much rather have the original office tower design at 605' than the new residential tower design at 750', but that just me.

Hopefully the new mixed-use design is a stunner.


So on to some other good news that came from the meeting.

One of the people attending had asked a person from metro planning about the plans for the old convention center site, and this is how that conversatin went. I'll just quote that as well...

Quote:
I asked her about plans for the old convention center site, she eluded to there being a very tall building for that site. She picked up the 505 building model and placed it on the corner near commerce st. and 5th ave and said wouldn't that be nice. Everybody around just looked at one another waiting for her to confirm but instead she said the proposal should be coming soon.
So it looks like we might be getting another very tall tower in the near future out of the old convention center site.
Previous renderings for the old convention center site showed multiple mixed-use towers with a new house of blues museum.

For anyone curious, here are those renderings.

Here are the renders for the two new designs for 5th & Church I was talking about earlier. The first one is the mixed-use tower that I didn't have a picture of yet, and the second is the residential tower that I posted a picture of in the model.

Both look fantastic but the mixed-use tower is incredible! Getting a little excited now for sure... Both of these two new designs are 750 feet tall.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architect http://smithgill.com/




^ALTERNATIVE ONE: A mixed-use tower with corporate office space in the middle and residential at the top, with parking and street-level retail at the base. / Rendering by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architect


^ ALTERNATIVE TWO: This is a proposed all-residential tower, with parking and street-level retail at the base. / Rendering by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architect

Here is the article about the two new designs.

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20.../2047/business

A few other renders.

Wish I had one of the mixed-use tower in the skyline like the residential one.

Some very good news this morning. The Nashville Post is reporting that Tony Giarratana's 33 story luxury apartment tower will begin construction late February...


Developer targets late-February start for SoBro luxury apartment tower
http://nashvillepost.com/blogs/postb...partment_tower




Quote:
Giarratana Development is targeting a late February start on its proposed luxury apartment tower SoBro.

Tony Giarratana, Giarratana Development president, said the company has received all Metro Planning Department and Metro Development and Housing Agency approvals with the exception of the west façade of the parking structure.
Quote:
“We submitted revisions two weeks ago and we hope to get approved this week,” he said. “We’ve told MDHA we can start by late February or early March.”

Giarratana Development originally had hoped to break ground by the end of 2013.

Giarratana is working with Chicago-based Magellan Development Group LLC on the 33-story SoBro, which would include 342 luxury rental apartment units, 378 parking spaces and more than 18,000 square feet of Class A, ground-level retail space.
Quote:
SoBro is planned to rise adjacent to both the Encore condominium tower to the west and The Pinnacle at Symphony Place office skyscraper to the north. The building would be bordered by Demonbreun Street on the north, Second Avenue on the east and Third Avenue on the west.

The development team has enlisted Chicago-based Loewenberg Architects to handle design work.

2014 is definitely going to be a banner year for Nashville. Big news has been pouring in even on the last day of the year...

Here is a few big stories that came on the last day of 2013.

The development group planning the 30 story Westin hotel next to the Music City Center has aquired more property, and appears to be moving forward with this project.

Group has SoBro site under contract for proposed Westin
http://nashvillepost.com/blogs/postb...roposed_westin
Quote:
The group that hopes to develop a 30-story Westin hotel in SoBro has a one-acre site near the Music City Center under contract, according to The Tennessean.
Quote:
Nashville Hospitality Capital LLC has a contract to buy the building last home to Cokesbury bookstore and an adjacent parking lot for $8 million, the morning daily reports. Led by investor Kevin M. Fee, the group originally planned to purchase the property from Terra Verde Group, which had the site under contract and eyed a massive mixed-use development. Terra Verde would later decide to pass on the acquisition.
Quote:
The property is located near the MCC Roundabout.
Last month, Nashville Hospitality paid $4.85 million for a 0.75-acre site next to the bookstore.





Tony Giarratana appears to be moving forward on his mixed-use tower in SoBro code-named "Sheet Music."

There is an article in the Nashville Post, but it is behind the paywall. Ron-n-TN posted some details about it over on UP. Details included a new render of the tower, and that the height is going to ironically be 505 feet at 36 stories. (Down from the original proposed 41 stories)

Other information given was that Tony Giarratana is also buying the coin shop on that property and that it will be vacated next month, as well as notifying the billboard company that the bill board has to be out by the end of January. The coin shop will also be demolished, and there is also a small lot that Tony is purchasing on the back side of the shop as well.

Here is the article.

Giarratana, Premier Parking make moves that could lead to Sheet Music development

Last but not least, the new render


And the original

Another step forward for the 36-41 story "Sheet Music" tower project. (renders a couple posts above)

Tony Giarratana has aquired more land and says he's talking with three potential tenants for the proposed tower.

Giarratana assembles more land at future Sheet Music site
"Developer says he's talking with three potential tenants for proposed tower"

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs....nclick_check=1

Quote:
Quote:
Premier Parking has acquired a downtown parking lot south of Broadway for $1.8 million, a move that helps co-owner developer Tony Giarratana assemble more land for future development.

The Nashville-based parking lot operator bought the property at the corner of Demonbreun and Almond streets from Ridgefield Properties, a long-time business partner of Giarratana. Premier already owned most of the one-acre block where Giarratana is pursuing options for development, including Sheet Music, a 36-story mixed-use tower expected to have more than 600,000 square feet of space.
Quote:
Giarratana said he has three proposals out to companies not currently in Davidson County that could anchor the planned tower. “If we land an anchor tenant, we will need to move quickly to accommodate their occupancy time frame,” he said. Alternatively, the site could accommodate a hotel, residential or mixed-used project, for instance, if a credit-worthy tenant isn’t secured.

The overall one-acre rectangular development site is bounded on the north by Demonbreun, on the west by 4th Avenue South , the east by Almond and the south by Molloy St. It includes the former 12,000-square-foot location of Music City Coins at 200 Fourth Ave. S. which was leased by Premier on Jan. 1. Giarranta has an option to buy that property at a later time.
Quote:
The former coin shop will be demolished after approval is obtained from Metro later this month, Giarratana said. Premier will operate the entire site as a parking lot until the start of construction.

“With this lease and this option we now have completed the assemblage of this premier SoBro block, something we’ve been trying to do for eight years,” Giarratana, who co-owns Premier with that parking company’s President Ryan Chapman said, referring to the deal for the coin shop site.
