Now&Next: Fresh Renderings Reveal The Proposed Mixed-Use Tower In Midtown Nashville

A request was filed to rezone from CS and MUG-A to SP zoning for (4) properties located between West End Avenue & Elliston Place. Once approved the request would permit the proposed 27-story ‘2416 West End Avenue’ mixed-use development, requested by Ragan Smith Associates.

Nestled between Centennial Park & Vanderbilt University, 2416 West End Avenue will become a known address for years to come.  It features breathtaking views of the recently updated Centennial Park to the North and spectacular views of Vanderbilt’s new Residence Halls to the South.  This development also adds to the growing list of mid to high rise structures defining the evolution of mid-town’s skyline.  Here’s the quick rundown:

Proposed Design

West Façade

Overall, the design of 2416 West End Avenue is an art-deco influenced high rise structure.  The art-deco inspiration can be seen in the west façade using thin lines that stretch up the entire face of the structure. Other elements include the subtle articulation of the building façade which also gives the appearance of a spire, while maximizing the useable square footage.

North Façade

Art-deco influences can be seen on the North façade as the sleek geometric lines are paired with staggered layers. The staggered design allows for multi-directional views and unique balcony configurations. The North façade also features a rare opportunity to capture the spectacular views of Centennial park.

The staggered design of the South façade appears to enable each unit to have an uninterrupted view of Downtown via West End Ave.  It also features a masonry element which compliments surrounding properties.
