Here's a bigger picture of the render.
Ground will be broken Thursday, March 5, in the Gulch on the Thompson Nashville hotel, officials involved with the project announced today.
The boutique hotel will rise at the split of 11th and 12th avenues (see here in an image courtesy of Google Maps).
The 224-room hotel, a price tag for which is not being disclosed, will sit on 0.64 acres on what had been a gravel parking lot. Rising 12 stories, the structure will share the block home to the buildings housing venerable live music venue The Station Inn and The 404 Hotel and Kitchen.
Nashville-based Hastings Architecture Associates is designing the building, which also will feature retail space and is slated for a late 2016 completion.
Nashville-based MarketStreet Enterprises, the MDHA-appointed master developer of the Gulch, owns the site and will oversee the development. Commune Hotels & Resorts, AJ Capital Partners and The Berger Company will participate.
JE Dunn, which is also locally based, will serve as the general contractor.
A ceremonial event, with Mayor Karl Dean to attend, will be held at Sambuca (across 12th from the site) at 10:30 a.m.
