Belle Meade, etc.) that would love to have a store of that caliber somewhere like the Green Hills Mall, IMO and experience. Neiman-Marcus would be great too.

Tennessean article about the Signature Tower:

http://tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/...511300409/1003

Wow, it's going to be pretty amazing if it becomes a reality. I just can't stand those nuts that think Tony G. shouldn't get the tax breaks: they need to think of those as an investment for the city (which will make the money back in 4 years or less).

The article pretty much debunks their stnad on the issue rather nicely. it cost the citizens nothing and has nothing to do with current taxes, so to them I say, "shut up!".

Never the less, I think it is awesome.

Here is the new render of the tower. www.giarrantana.com

Tell them to build a Saks in Louisville too. Why is it that Nashville and Louisville don't have the major upscale department stores?

I know that Nordstrom is supposedly headed to Franklin and that The Mall at Green Hills has got Tiffany's and Louie Vuitton headed that way next year. They were looking for another upscale anchor for that mall, I have heard that it is either going to be a Saks or Neiman M. Only time will tell.

This goes to the 'under construction' category next year along with ICON in the Gulch District.

Terrazo (14 stories)


From the Tennessean this morning.

Crosland plans modern look for mixed-use Gulch condo tower

'Terrazzo' project also will have retail and office space.

By TODD PACK
Staff Writer


Crosland Inc. has settled on a design for its 14-story, mostly condominium development in the Gulch area of downtown Nashville, naming the project "Terrazzo" to reflect the terraces to be built around the units.

The project, at the southeast corner of 12th Avenue South and Division Street, will feature a contemporary design, the Charlotte, N.C.-based developer said. Terrazzo is Italian for terrace.




"The name also speaks to the mid-century modern influences, such as terrazzo flooring and wall material, planned for portions of the interior," said Bill Barkley, president of Crosland's Tennessee division.

The first four floors of the 260,000-square-foot building will include 20,000 square feet of retail space and 70,000 square feet of office space, topped by 10 floors of residential units.

Barkley said the condominiums will be priced from the mid-$200,000s and feature at least 12-foot ceilings and large terraces. They will be wired for Ethernet, cable, telephone and sound systems.

Amenities will include a 24-hour concierge, fitness center and rooftop pool.

The architects are Hastings Architecture Associates and Manuel Zeitlin Architects. The development is scheduled to break ground in spring 2006, with completion scheduled for fall 2007.

Terrazzo is Crosland's first development in Nashville since the company established its Tennessee office in May when it acquired Nashville-based Armistead Barkley. •

Here is the render of the project....

Here is the ICON that will be going up right across the road from it. (18 floors)

It really has something to do with the type of market that companies are looking for. In this case, Memphis and Louisville are considered small markets to several upscale chains (i.e., Bloomingdale's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, etc.), whereas Nashville has started to come of age. At least that's my opinion.

^ Perhaps. It also has a bit to do with the wealth of a particular region.

^Nope. Not a bit. He only has to presell around 40% of the tower to start construction on it. I can see that happening within the next year easily.

A flatiron type building at West End and Broadway would be a sweet replacement for that car dealer...

Construction started TODAY on the 21 floor ICON in the Gulch. I will have pics very soon of the site. ICON is a 21 floor, condo tower in the Gulch district just a few blocks fomr the GEC and proposed convention center site. A new Rail stop is planned for the neighborhood surrounding the site.

I respect your opinion BUT...when they are about the same size, how in the hell are they different? I cant believe Nashville having an extra 100k in far distant surrounding counties means that much and it certainly doesnt make Louisville or Memphis "small" compared to nashville. Also remember both Louisville and Memphis have much higher core county and urban area pops. Is it the exurban or suburban ppl who shop at these stores? i would think suburban, not people living in towns 35 miles away from the city.

Its about money. Nashville and surrounding communities (i.e. Franklin, Brentwood, and Belle Meade) are more wealthy than most of Louisville's strong communities. Nashville has two communities that are rated some of the wealthiest in the country in Belle Meade and Williamson County. That has every bit to do with it.

Hmm, Im not really sure about that either. Louisville is more old money though, I will grant you that. And old money is tight. FYI Mockingbird Valley and Glenview are two suburbs that while very small, rank among the top 25 richest cities in the COUNTRY (percapita) perenially (if not one, then the other). Only the ritziest places in NY, FL, and CA can say this. I dont think Louisville's burbs like Prospect, Anchorage, or Crestwood are anything to write off either.
