It isn't dead yet but is likely on life support and will be a bit shorter, probably 850' or so which is still a monster. But regardless of the developers continued mantra and cheerleading it isn't looking good for financing. I'll give Giarattana credit though, if anyone can get this going it will be him.

Not dead just quite yet...

I am not sure why this discussion is now posted in the "Never Built" section, as it is still not technically dead... for now the news comes that Kimpton Hotels may be in negotiations with Tony G. about increasing their presence within the tower by agreeing to encompass more floors. (See http://remarkablehomes.blogspot.com/...do-update.html.) This could be partially due to the continued increase on hotel investments in Nashville, even during the economic downturn as witnessed by other hotels within the area; and also because of the new convention center which will increase demand in the very near future... most likely much beyond what the currently planned hotel towers within the convention center project will be able to provide. This makes for a highly profitable stance for such a hotel, so it makes sense to me... and it may even mean they keep the original height and most of the original design of the tower, as it would make more sense to simply convert the lower condo levels to hotel floors instead of having to redesign an entire building.
However, that all being said, I have still have seen no proof of this other than the aforementioned article which definitely is not the final word... but I will keep my eyes peeled.
Has anyone else heard anymore about this?

Still not dead

Here's an update on the height reduction:
http://www.bizjournals.com/nashville...04/story1.html

The new height is supposed to be 50 floors and 807 ft.

I guess when it becomes a new proposal this project should get a new thread with the new specifications in the title, since this project in it's original form is never built.

It is NOT never built! Move this to a different section! They just scaled it down! Get it out of here monitors or administrators or whatever you're called!

In that incarnation it's never built. A new thread must be started.

So are they just planning on cutting down the floors to where it will look the same but a little shorter or are they completely going back to the drawing board where the design will look completely different, kinda like the barclays center?

I believed they're called administrators.
