ONE22ONE will be the name of the 23 to 27 story, 365-500,000 sq. ft. office tower to be built on the .58 acre Firestone Store site at 1221 Broadway by GBT Realty. It will include 7,000 sq. ft. of street level retail. They are also under contract for the .2 acre site just to the west owned by Rusty Dunn, that will make the full site .78 acre. Tentative opening is 2022.

The parcel is zoned to allow a building of 20 floors. It falls within the Metro Planning Department’s Downtown Code and, as such, GBT eventually will go before the Downtown Code Review Committee to seek bonus height, which could yield a structure of, as noted, up to 27 floors. The company is expected to offer street-level activation and design elements beyond what is required to gain the bonus height.

Construction financing not secured yet.

Good God, we have got to get rid of these stupid nonsensical height restrictions within the downtown loop. I get their purpose elsewhere. I wouldn't want to be Houston where we're putting 60 story buildings next to single family homes. But what use does it serve to have height restrictions downtown of all places? All it does is create extra hoops developers have to jump through for no reason at all.

Yep, the PLanning Department is a bit ridiculous. This goes back to when Rick Barnhardt was the Director of Planning. He hated tall buildings and only wanted them in the CBD which is very small compared to other cities. The CBD is pretty much built out.
