SkyHouse high-rise planned for 17th and Broadway
http://www.tennessean.com/story/mon...house-high-rise-planned-th-broadway/13645587/



A rendering of SkyHouse Nashville, which is planned for 17th and Broadway.


The team of Novare and Batson-Cook is in early stages of rezoning the site near Music Row, which is currently home to the Sub Stop restaurant and the building once occupied by gift maker Hester & Cook Design Group. Essentially, the companies' filing with the Metro Planning Commission seeks to cancel a portion of the Music Row Urban Design Overlay District for properties at 1707 Broadway and several addresses on 17th Avenue South at the southwest corner of 17th Avenue South and Broadway.

The planned 25-story building would feature studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units with high-end finishes and floor-to-ceiling glass, plus a rooftop luxury amenity package and more than 10,600 square feet of ground-level retail space.
The signature "SkyHouse" on the 25th floor would feature a club room, fitness area and outdoor plazas that include a swimming pool, fireplaces, covered outdoor lounges and 360-degree views of Nashville. The project also would have a bike repair shop and bike storage, a dog walk area and a dog wash area.
Novare and Batson-Cook, which have two completed SkyHouses in Atlanta, also have completed projects in Orlando, Fla.; Austin, Texas; and Houston. The team has projects under construction in Dallas; Houston; Raleigh, N.C.; Atlanta; Tampa, Fla.; and Charlotte, N.C. All are environmentally sustainable and Energy Star-certified and overall represent $750 million of new construction. The average SkyHouse costs $65 million. Batson-Cook Construction is the general contractor and Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart is the architect.

Much like Novare, Batson is no stranger to the Nashville area. A decade ago, the subsidiary of Kajima USA partnered with Warren Commercial Real Estate to develop the Parkway Commons retail center in Franklin.
Kent Grizzard, whose wife, Dianne, owns Sub Stop restaurant, said the business would relocate if it had to make way for any future development on that site. "It's a wait-and-see proposition," he said.

Previously, Franklin-based developer Southern Land Co. had the 1.36-acre site under a contract but didn't complete a deal to buy it. The site is considered attractive with hotels and other developments built in recent years and plans by Indianapolis-based Buckingham Cos. for a $100 million-plus mixed-used project not far away, near Vanderbilt's campus.
This shows the location of the Skyhouse with other projects either under construction or proposed in the area.

Of course this is terrific news.:)

Once construction starts, it will shoot up like nothing you've ever seen!
Yeah, I've checked out a few of the other ones under construction and It's astonishing how quickly they are building these towers. This is going to be a pretty dense area with all this development. Exciting times for sure!

According to Ron over on UP, it will probably be late summer possibly fall of next year before this breaks ground. He talked to one of the tenants in the footprint and they were told they had a year before they had to vacate. This was back in August.

Renderings were finally released for the Virgin Hotel that will be built next door to this. Skyhouse, the Virgin Hotel, along with the 19 story 'Element' and 'Cadence' that's under construction will make a huge impact on Music Row. There are a handful of other projects slated to break ground this year close by in the 25 story range. Mid Town is exploding with growth!

I've been amazed at how fast this is rising. This are has changed in the last 5-10 years already, but with this, Cadence, and (hopefully) the Virgin Hotel and Residences this area will be total transformed.
