That might be true Jlh but we just don't know for sure until an official word comes from the developer I'd imagine. The worst is for now we wait until November and then we can see if anything is happening. If they're fighting this hard to keep it alive I'd imagine they want the tower built - it just has challenges to go through with housing / land prices and such before it happens.

At least, that's what I'm figuring. Whether it really is dead or not is something we'll see eventually.

Decided to change the title back since the last one was not really, well, technically the best. Let's say it's dead only if it really is.

Not dead yet. The tower undergoes a redesign which is shortening the height. How much shorter? Likely to get built?

Signature Tower won't be 70 stories

By Randy McClain • THE TENNESSEAN • December 3, 2008

Developer Tony Giarratana made a splash nearly four years ago with plans for what morphed into a proposed 70-story condo and hotel project on Church Street at Fifth Avenue North.

The much-ballyhooed Signature Tower was supposed to be the tallest building in the nation outside New York and Chicago.

Now, with credit markets in disarray, Giarratana has decided to downsize the project as he continues to search for financing to build it. Instead of 70 floors and as many as 600 condo units, look for a smaller Signature Tower with no more than 90 to 100 condos.

Giarratana said the ultimate look of his planned tower is still under discussion, but the basics are as follows:

>> The average size of Signature condos will more than double from original plans of roughly 1,500 square feet each to about 3,500 square feet.

>> Prices haven't been set yet, and neither has a timetable for construction.

>> But the final design will be one that targets the luxury market.

"The average price will be substantially more; there will be fewer units but much larger individual units," Giarratana said during Tuesday's "Lunch Money" Webcast at Tennessean.com.

Giarratana said the U.S. recession killed the glitzy 70-story Signature Tower plans, but he still plans to bring a revised concept to fruition.

"I'm glad I'm not coming online with 400 to 600 high-rise condominiums right at this particular moment. The market has changed … and we've re-evaluated the project," he said.

"The next reiteration you see of Signature Tower is going to be very luxurious — 3,500 square feet average units. You'll see the same great architecture, a little bit shorter and a completely different design. No floor plans from the original concept will survive," Giarratana added.

"We think we can find 90 to 100 buyers for a product of this type, and it's a win. This is a market of 1.5 million people, and we're looking for 90 like-minded folks."

Based on this quote from Giarratana:

"The next reiteration you see of Signature Tower is going to be very luxurious — 3,500 square feet average units. You'll see the same great architecture, a little bit shorter and a completely different design. No floor plans from the original concept will survive," Giarratana added."

I'm expecting the redesigned tower to include a 15 to 20 story hotel component, plus about a 15 story office component in addition to about 25 stories of condos. This would shrink the structure down from 70 stories to about 55 to 60 and take the height down from 1057 Ft (322 M) down to about 900 Ft (274 M). Obviously, this is just a guess, but I think Giarratana still plans to build it very high.

Wow guys! Here's the redesign. I'm impressed at how well it emphasizes the continued Nashville 500 foot ceiling.

Okay after yesterdays design change took a lot of heat Tony G. just called a press conference today and said he had made some minor adjustments which enabled him to cut out 75% of the cost and still maintain that incredible 1,057 foot height.

Funny picture. That remind me of Austin's tallest building (I forgot the name of it).

It's been approved for ever the problem is construction just hasn't started and maybe never will. We've been told construction would start many times yet nothing has happened.
