The hotel planned by Corner Partnership and Magellan Development would include a rooftop bar, a music venue, an amenity deck and space for a pair of specialty restaurant.
The W luxury hotel planned for the Gulch will be larger with roughly 350 rooms and a rooftop bar, but residential units are no longer planned as part of the overall project.
On Tuesday, Nashville-based Corner Partnership and Magellan Development of Chicago will present revised plans for hotel designed for 316 12th Ave. S. to the Metro Development and Housing Agency’s design review committee.
“Our partnership goal is to develop a very special luxury lifestyle hotel that fuses design, fashion and music in a way that differentiates our property from any other in the Nashville market,” Corner Partnership and Magellan Development said in a joint statement signed by Mark Bloom of the Nashville-based investment group.
In March 2016, the design review committee approved conceptual plans for a 16-story project with 250 hotel rooms, more than 200 luxury apartments and restaurant spaces at both Laurel and Pine streets.
Under new plans that the developers submitted to MDHA, the W hotel would include a rooftop bar, a music venue, an amenity deck. There’s also space for specialty restaurants at the corner of 12th and Laurel and 12th and Pine.
The entrance to the hotel will be on 12th Avenue South across the Twelve Twelve condo tower.
The overall 1.29-acre Griffin Plaza site, where the project is planned, is on 12th Avenue between Laurel and Pine streets.
