Nashville’s growth spurt continues. Plans were recently announced for two new projects in Nashville: a high rise downtown and an apartment building in the Music Row area.
Developer Tony Giarratana announced that he is in talks with an international company for a headquarters that would make downtown Nashville home to a 41-story high-rise in the SoBro area. The mixed-use project, currently nicknamed “Sheet Music,” is slated for the southeast corner of Fourth Avenue and Demonbreun Street next to the Encore condominium tower.
The project’s current design consists of a curvilinear shape and three main layers: parking, office space and 15 stories of residential or hotel rooms on top. Global architecture firm Perkins+Will designed the project, which is said to be unlike anything in Nashville.
Residential developments are on the horizon, too. Charlotte, N.C.-based developer Childress Klein Properties has submitted plans to the Metro Planning Commission to build a 16-story, 409-unit apartment building on the Buddy Killen Circle between Division and Demonbreun streets.
The ground floor will feature two retail spaces and a fitness center, according to planning documents. Final site plan approval of the project is on the agenda for Thursday’s planning commission meeting.
