Music Row tower Element topped

Element Music Row — the 18-story mixed-use tower under construction at 1515 Demonbreun St. in Midtown — has been topped.

At about 180 feet tall, the building ranks among Nashville’s three tallest that have been topped since the city post’s-2011 urban construction boom. Currently, Nashville has eight buildings of about 150 tall or taller under construction and not yet topped.

Element (read more here) will feature 431 apartment units, about 6,000 square feet of retail space and a 600-space garage. Developed by Charlotte-based Childress Klein Properties, the building will front Musica on the Music Row Roundabout.

Roundabout tower named Element Music Row

Charlotte-based Childress Klein Properties will use Element Music Row as the name of its 19-story mixed-use tower under construction at 1515 Demonbreun St. in Midtown.

The building — which will feature 431 apartment units, about 6,000 square feet of retail space and a 600-space garage — will front Musica on the Music Row Roundabout.

Fred Klein (pictured), CKP partner, said the marketing move involving the naming will be accompanied by a website that should go live in a few weeks.

“We plan to begin pre-leasing in summer 2015,” he said.

Klein said 1515 Demonbreun was a working name used in a general manner until an official name was given. Temporary signage with “Element Music Row” was installed at the worksite last week.

Element Music Row joins fellow Childress Klein buildings Element Uptown (located on the fringe of Charlotte’s central business district) and Element at Carolina Bay (located in Charleston, South Carolina). The development company is also working on Element South, to be located in Ballentyne near Charlotte.

Atlanta-based architect Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, which designed Element Uptown, has designed the Music Row Roundabout tower.

Second crane awaits assembly at roundabout tower site

Tower cranes are a symbol that work is progressing strongly at the sites of under-construction tall buildings.

That said, Childress Klein Properties is taking the next step toward major progress on its 19-story mixed-use building it is developing on the Music Row Roundabout. As of Monday, a crane-assembly crane was on the site, the address for which is 1515 Demonbreun St.

The looming erection of the tower crane — which will join an already operational tower crane — will come after the Charlotte-based development company recently landed a $39 million permit for the building. JE Dunn Construction Co. is serving as general contractor on the project.

The tower — it is uncertain if 1515 Demonbreun will be the official name of the building — will feature 431 apartment units, 6,000 square feet of retail space and a 600-space parking garage.

Late-March start eyed for Row roundabout tower

Childress Klein Properties is targeting a late-March groundbreaking for its 18-story mixed-use building to front the Music Row Roundabout. The development company, which is co-based in Atlanta and Charlotte, recently paid $6.25 million for the 1.56-acre site, which is bordered by Demonbreun and Division streets.

The building, for which a name has not been announced, will include 431 apartment units that are expected to be ready for residents starting in early 2016. The building also will offer about 8,000 square feet of street-level retail space for two businesses, according to Kelly Dunbar, a partner in Childress Klein’s 2011-founded multifamily division.

Dunbar said the company wants a restaurant for the retail space that fronts the roundabout.

“We are gauging the demand for a restaurant and it should be very strong,” Dunbar said, adding Childress Klein has not begun the process of having formal talks with restaurants owners/operators.

As to the other retail space, Dunbar said the company envisions a coffee shop or a lunch spot.

“We would like something compatible with [the large restaurant] and an amenity for the residents,” said Dunbar, who co-manages the Childress Klein multifamily division with Fred Klein III.

The project will have a local flavor, as Childress Klein has enlisted Nashville-based Littlejohn Engineering Associates and J.E. Dunn Construction of Brentwood. The former is handling engineering efforts, while the latter will serve as general contractor. Relatedly, J.E. Dunn is the GC for the Childress Klein-developed 22-story Element Uptown in Charlotte. That building was topped in January, with residents slated to move in by summer.

Atlanta-based architect Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio, which designed Element Uptown, has designed the roundabout tower. 

Dunbar declined to discuss the financing structure for the roundabout project.
