Fifth Third Center, Palmer Plaza could be sold

A downtown Nashville skyscraper is about to change ownership hands while a Midtown tower could soon hit the market.

The Nashville Business Journal reports the Fifth Third Center, which anchors the city’s central business district at the northeast corner of the Fifth Avenue North and Church Street intersection, is slated to sell next month for about $90 million. (Read more here.)

The NBJ reports that Denver-based Amstar has selected a buyer (not ID’d in the story) for the 31-story high-rise (pictured), which a shade under 80 percent leased.

Similarly, The Tennessean reports Palmer Plaza will soon hit the market. The daily paper reports Palmer Plaza Partners II owes $30 million on its loan and needs to either sell or refinance.

The 18-story 269-foot-tall Palmer Plaza opened in 1986. Located at the southwest corner of the West End and 18th avenues intersection, it remains Midtown’s tallest structure.
