A FIRST LOOK AT HCA CAPITOL VIEW
HCA's new office space for Parallon and the Sarah Cannon Research Institute is part of the revitalization effort for the North Gulch. Here is a closer look at what the new building will look like as compared to what the site looked like in 2009.
An office tower in the North Gulch will rise 14 stories along Charlotte Avenue, and will also feature street-level retail, according to new documents obtained by The Tennessean.

The office tower, being built by HCA, will be complemented by both street parking and a parking garage.

In May, hospital giant HCA completed its purchase of the 10.5 acres where it is planning major construction for two of its subsidiaries, Parallon Business Solutions and Sarah Cannon Research Institute.

HCA's portion of the Capitol View project is just a third of the overall 32-acre site.

Meanwhile, Boyle Nashville, a co-developer of the project, is creating plans for the overall site, including retail, apartments and an urban grocery.
Atlanta-based architecture firm Cooper Carry continues to work on the master plan for Capitol View, but details have emerged for the remaining 21 acres. Overall, the urban, mixed-use project will have up to 1 million square feet of office space; 300,000 square feet of retail, grocery and restaurant space; sites for two hotels; and 1,000 apartment units.

A mixed-use building at the northeast corner of 11th and Charlotte will include a five-story, 250-unit apartment community on top of 80,000 square feet of retail space, including a 49,000-square-foot urban grocery store. Earlier this summer, Boyle said the plans for the building call for it to be completed shortly after the two HCA subsidiaries move into the new headquarter at the end of 2016.

HCA moving Parallon, Sarah Cannon headquarters to North Gulch site
$200 million project to shift from Palmer's West End Summit to site off Charlotte Avenue



HCA plans to buy nearly 11 acres off Charlotte Avenue in the North Gulch area near downtown and will invest $200 million in new headquarters space for two of its subsidiaries.

The move represents a dramatic shift in the more than year-long effort to bring more than 2,000 employees into the city’s core.

The new deal also marks an end to HCA’s previous agreement for Parallon Business Solutions and Sarah Cannon Research Institute to anchor twin towers that developer Alex Palmer had planned at his West End Summit project in midtown Nashville.

The hospital giant begin exploring other options this fall after Palmer ran into difficulties trying to obtain financing for the nearly $260 million project, which also included a 285-room InterContinental Hotel & Resort.
Site design is currently underway and HCA expects the new headquarters to be open by late 2016. The site is part of a larger 32-acre swath of land for which owner Northwestern Mutual and development partner Boyle Investment Co. are developing a master plan. The plan will likely call for a mixed-use project, dubbed Capitol View, that would include offices, retail and restaurants, a hotel, multi-family residential and other uses.

“With this announcement, it allows us to accelerate the strategic master planning for Capitol View,” said Jeff Haynes, managing partner with Boyle Nashville LLC. “(Northwestern Mutual’s) excited about the continued growth and momentum of downtown Nashville, especially in close proximity to the new ballpark, the Gulch, (and) the Charlotte Avenue regentrification.”
HCA’s latest move will still bring 2,000 jobs to Davidson County, maintaining the hospital giant’s pledge made to city leaders more than a year ago. “We appreciate Mayor Dean’s continued support of our expansion in Davidson County, and we look forward to completing this project, which will promote the growth and development of the North Gulch area,” said Richard M. Bracken, the hospital chain’s chairman and CEO.

City officials had previously committed to a $66 million incentive package for HCA’s West End Summit expansion, and the state pledged $7.5 million for new employees, plus job grants intended for HCA.

Metro dubbed HCA’s expansion as Nashville’s biggest economic development catch since computer maker Dell brought assembly operations here during the early ’90s. HCA spokesman Ed Fishbough confirmed that HCA will seek economic development incentives for the new site, too.

The HCA headquarters tower has added two floors and now has a height of 257 feet. The site is fenced off and construction trailers are now on site. This building will be the first to break ground on the 33 acre mixed-use development.

HCA set to break ground on North Gulch building
http://www.tennessean.com/story/mon...t-break-ground-north-gulch-building/16229449/

Hospital chain HCA plans to break ground next Friday on headquarters for two of its subsidiaries at the Capitol View mixed-use development site in Nashville’s North Gulch.

Construction should start in coming weeks, with Skanska serving as construction manager for the project, which represents a $200 million investment by the largest hospital chain in the country when ranked by revenue. Completion is expected by 2016, with HCA planning to bring 2,000 jobs to Davidson County over the next several years.

The headquarters for HCA’s Parallon Business Solutions and Sarah Cannon Research Institute subsidiaries would kick off work on the $500 million Capitol View project that Northwestern Mutual and development partner Boyle Nashville plan on 32 acres at 11th Avenue North and Charlotte.
Gresham, Smith and Partners is architect for the building HCA plans on a 10.8-acre portion of the overall site west of 11th Avenue and closer to Interstate 40, which the hospital chain acquired from Northwestern.

HCA’s new building is expected to rise 14 stories with street-level retail plus street parking and a parking garage.

In addition to HCA’s building, Capitol View is expected to include more offices, retail space, hotels, apartments, a conference center and an urban park/open community space.

The groundbreaking ceremony for HCA’s building is one of several construction kickoffs planned in the Nashville area in coming weeks. Next week, H.G. Hill Reality Co. will start demolishing the Tennessee Baptist Convention building as part of planned expansion of its Hill Center Brentwood. On Oct. 22, SouthStar LLC and Highwoods Properties plan a groundbreaking for their $700 million mixed-use Ovation lifestyle community in Cool Springs.

Groundbreaking set for this Friday.

HCA sets North Gulch tower groundbreaking
https://www.nashvillepost.com/blogs/postbusiness/2014/9/30/hca_sets_north_gulch_tower_groundbreaking
HCA will break ground Friday on its North Gulch office tower that will eventually house company divisions Sarah Cannon Research Institute and Parallon Business Solutions.

The 17-story building will represent an approximately $300 million investment. About 2,000 jobs are part of the equation.

To be located in what is being called Capitol View, the 247-foot-tall tower will be the first development on the overall 32-acre site. HCA, which own about 11 acres, is working with Boyle Nashville, which will handle marketing and leasing of retail space in the tower. Similarly, Boyle and Northwestern Mutual Real Estate are working to develop about 21 acres of adjoining property.
The ceremony starts at 10 a.m. and will include remarks from HCA President and CEO Milton Johnson and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.

HCA tower will be 17 stories and 267' tall.

HCA tower to make a height statement
https://www.nashvillepost.com/blogs/postbusiness/2014/10/8/hca_tower_to_make_a_height_statement


Not that this necessarily means much, but …

If standing today, the HCA tower that will be home to Sarah Cannon and Parallon would rank among the tallest buildings not located within Nashville’s central business district or SoBro.

The building, ground for which has been broken in the North Gulch's Capitol View, will rise about 267 feet, which would place it at about the same height as Icon in The Gulch (roughly 280 feet), Palmer Plaza (the mid-1980s Midtown building that stands approximately 269 feet) and glistening new Gulch tower Twelve Twelve (about 261 feet).

There is a school of thought that the taller the building, the more a “statement” (which can often translate to prestige, visibility, vibrancy, etc.) that building makes — and in a city with the population of Nashville, 200 feet is noteworthy.

As to the Gresham Smith & Partners-designed HCA tower, with no other tall buildings to be located nearby (at least at the time of its opening in two years), the as-yet-unnamed structure (read more here) should strike a commanding presence.

Other 200-foot-or-taller buildings located outside the city’s CBD and SoBro include Icon (Gulch), Marriott Nashville Airport, Highland Ridge, and 2525 West End (West End Corridor). In addition, four buildings on the Vanderbilt campus are almost 200 feet tall each.

Nashville has other buildings either under construction or planned and that should approach, if not top, 200 feet. These include the underway SoBro, Element and a mixed-use tower Southern Land is developing in Green Hills, the proposed Westin Hotel and SkyHouse, and buildings Lennar, Giarratana, Impakt and Turnberry are targeting.

Currently, the city boasts 26 buildings that rise at least 200 feet.

The hole for this is starting to get big. Here are some new renderings. It looks like this tower will be more imposing than the original proposal with the additional floors and start to extent the skyline to the northwest a bit. It will be intriguing to see how the remainder of the North Gulch fills in around the Capital View development in the coming years.

6 buildings changing nashville’s midtown skyline

January 17 2015



5–HCA broke ground last fall on a 16-story north gulch mixed-use development. over 500,000 square feet of the building’s office space will headquarter two of HCA’s subsidiaries, sarah cannon research and parallon business solutions. hca’s portion is only 10 acres though of the 32.5 acre lot. the rest of the game plan for the project will include up to 1 million square feet of office space, 300,000 square feet of retail, grocery store & restaurant space, sites for two separate hotels and 1,000 apartment units. it will be quite the undertaking.

Crane soon to rise at HCA project site in North Gulch

Published April 10, 2015 by William Williams

Segments of a tower crane are now on the North Gulch site at which construction is underway on the building that eventually will accommodate HCA divisions Sarah Cannon and Parallon.

The 16-story structure will stand more than 250 feet, with no buildings of major height located near it. This means the tower crane will strike a dramatically vertical pose on the site.

In general, the erection of tower cranes mean large-scale projects are ready to go vertical, thus creating visibility and added excitement.

Skanska is serving as general contractor for the project, with Gresham Smith & Partners handling design work.
