Renderings of the final version of the 45-story 505 tower have just been released, which prompted us to take a closer look at the project and what to expect from it once finished. Being developed by Tony Giarratana, the 505 skyscraper is easily one of the most anticipated new projects in the works, not just because it will stand 45 stories high and house 550 residential units, but also because of its prominent location at the corner of Fifth and Church right in the heart of downtown Nashville.
Prior to finalizing the details behind the project, Giarratana knew this special site deserved a special building, and there’s no denying it’s final design is sleek, modern, and exactly what a location like Fifth and Church commands.
Along with its 550 residential units, which will be divided into both apartments and condominium residences, 505 will also feature up to 10,000 square feet of restaurant space in addition to two separate retail spaces.
In all, 505 is estimated to cost $155 million to build and with construction already under way by Chicago-based Archer Western Construction, this 543 foot tall high-rise will soon be Nashville’s tallest building in terms of occupied floors, but the 617 foot “Batman Building” will still be taller taking into consideration its twin spires.
