The Nashville office of Raleigh-based Highwoods Properties is eyeing a three-building project for the North Gulch site last home to The Tennessean and fronting Broadway.
Nashville Business Journal reports the company has enlisted locally based Hastings Architecture Associates to design the buildings, with a groundbreaking hoped for by mid-2022. The downtown development will unfold near Highwoods’ Asurion development, which interacts with both 11th Avenue and Church Street.
"With the emergence of Asurion's headquarters, the area between the Broadway and Church Street viaducts — which we are branding as Gulch Central — will start to become its own district," Brian Reames, Highwoods' area senior vice president, said. "That led to the vision for the rest of the area, a more fully integrated neighborhood with additional open spaces, green spaces and connectivity between the buildings. We want the project to embrace the benefits and opportunities offered by the greenway."
NBJ reports the project could feature the following elements:
• A 28-story office building located at 1100 Broadway (the ex-address of the morning daily) with potentially 750,000 square feet. It likely will be called 1100 Broadway.
• A 41-story, 350-unit residential tower, sharing the 1100 Broadway address with the office tower. Reames told the Post the building could offer either apartments or for-purchase condominiums. No name has been finalized.
"Informal discussions with prospective development partners have already begun regarding the development of the residential tower," Reames said.
• A six-story, 150,000-square-foot building with office and retail space. With an address of 1010 Broadway, the building would mainly front 11th Avenue and connect to an existing greenway (see here) and likely will be called 1010 Broadway.
