Did you hear that the skyline in Nashville is going to be changing with six upcoming buildings? Bridgestone Americas plan to have a 30-story high rise built in Sobro for their corporate offices to reside. The JW Marriott hotel and a 25-story office building are planned for the area at 8th and Demonbreun. You can also expect to see a couple of apartment high rise buildings and more hotels.

This means plenty of new options for staying or living in Sobro that might mean better opportunities for you to live, work and play in one area. Here is a look at the changes coming to the Sobro Skyline soon.

JW Marriott

The JW Marriott is expected to start construction in the summer of 2015. They plan to open in the late part of 2017 where you’ll see a 500-600 room hotel at 8th and Demonbreun. This 35-story hotel is going to bring 650 jobs to the downtown Sobro which is going to be great for the local economy.

In addition to the hotel, the 3.7 acre lot is going to feature a 25-story office building in the same location. The office building will be around 400,000 square feet in size purely meant for office space. They are expecting to be able to house about 1,200 jobs in this space.

Bridgestone Americas

Get ready for one of the tallest towers in the city. Bridgestone Americas is coming to the area between the river and the Country Music Hall of Fame located on Demonbreun Street. The company wanted their corporate offices to be located in this area and a 30-story high rise is planned to be built in Sobro which is considered a huge accomplishment. 1,700 employees, including 600 out-of-state employees, will be moved to the downtown location and they will be the only company in this building.

Other Developments

Also coming to the area is the Westin Hotel at 100 Clark Place, the first one in the area that will be located at 8th Avenue. It will be a 27-story, 452- room tower ready in 2017. Two apartment buildings are coming to the area as well. Expect to see The Sobro, a 342 apartment building with parking and street level retail. It will be a 33-story luxury apartment by Tony Giarratana located at 418 Second Street.

In addition, a 23-story apartment high rise costing $75 million is coming to 641 Division Street. It will be called The Crescendo and will feature 330 apartments, a garage for 600 parking spaces and ground level retail.

The Sobro skyline is going to be changing in 2016 and 2017 with these exciting additions.
