Roundabout office building gets green light

Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 7:53pm

A new office building near the Music Row Roundabout could begin rising late spring or early summer.

Today, the Metropolitan Development & Housing Agency approved the redevelopment plan for Houston-based Lionstone Group’s 250,000-square-foot office building on property along Demonbreun Street.

Previously, a Shoney’s Restaurant and the Barbara Mandrell Theater was on the property.

Architectural firm Earl Swensson Associates is designing the building and will be the anchor tenant. Real estate firm Colliers Turley Martin Tucker also will move from Brentwood into the building.

The office building is the first phase. A second phase will contain a hotel. Lionstone is said to still be looking for a developer to do that portion.

This will surely look better than what's there now-I think. Wish they'd added a picture.

Looks promising, more office development is really needed in this area. Now, IF ONLY someone would do something about the TACKY signs on the roundabout "Buddy Killen Circle". Shocking that the music industry does not come up with something innovative and creative to pay homage to Buddy Killen in that spot. The current signs are clearly TDOT govt issue and are a disgrace the the city!

The best thing about this building is it will block out the view of that hideous BMI building. Now, if only we could get three more buildings to completely surround that monstrosity.

great news for Nashville. The roundabout could become a great spot in Nashville's urban fabric with continued development there and in the gulch/west end, all connecting to downtown Nashville.
