With the announcements today by Amazon and EY, suddenly a big chunk of prime office space under development looks like it will be leased. The Amazon office could take up to 1,000,000 square feet in the Nashville Yards development and the tax accounting firm of EY take up a big amount in the new office building at Chet Adkins. This will be a tremendous boast to projects on the verge of starting construction. I would wonder if this might even inspire the KVB tower development to change back to its original height. Likewise, the 805 Lea project might revert to its 35 story height. I do know that previous Gulch projects regret reducing their completed projects from their initial proposed heights. All of this new influx will certainly stimulate housing growth here in the urban core. Outstanding!

More about the Ernst & Young expansion to Nashville...from the TENNESSEAN

Quote:
Multinational accounting and professional services firm EY, formerly called Ernst & Young, will open a 600-person office near Nashville's Music Row in August, the company announced Tuesday morning.

EY's $22 million Exceptional Delivery Growth Engine Center will open next year near Music Row in the new 18th and Chet development, at 820 18th Ave. S. The facility will specialize in tech-enabled tax-managed services, software development, and design and testing.
This sounds like some high level IT jobs and not just pencil pushers (jk). Nashville's IT street cred just went up astronomically today.
This is to be their new home...

Nashville Yards is a 15 acre development on the west side of downtown. I expect the rendered office buildings to be somewhat taller than shown.



It will have the new "Live at Nashville" development by AEG as a neighbor.



Sorry; gotta keep this posted on the new page for a while. Somebody may have missed the news.

An interview with the architect a week or so ago in the Post implied that the height of the office towers was adjustable according to need. He said something about zoning being unlimited. Do you think that refers to height? From what I can tell from other high rises a million square feet could be 50-60 stories. Now there are four office towers planned. But if I was a developer I would want room for all the companies that will want to be next to Amazon.

Yes, from what I understand, there are no city limitations on height downtown, but the FAA has reportedly restricted it to 750'. Something about giving Taylor Swift's (or anyone's) plane enough room to climb if they should lose an engine or something according to some geekish people who keep up with that stuff.

Is the unlimited density related to FAR? Density zoning is more closely related to FAR.
