Permit Patrol: 24 August 2012

New brand for West End hotel, multimillion dollar project at Baptist, downtown brewery makes room for coffee space, and more...

A new name for West End hotel

The Indigo Hotel at 1719 West End (pictured) is getting new signage and will apparently be rebranded as a location of Aloft, the division of Starwood's W Hotels group. The permit has the words "A Loft" and we have a call out to get some more info on the plans for the building. The five new signs and three temporary banners from Signs Inc. cost $16,500. The Aloft brand has a location in Cool Springs.

You got to have heart

Turner Universal is performing a $6.4 million rehab of 44,000 square feet at Baptist Hospital for the diagnostic imaging and cardiology departments.

Coffee on Eighth

A portion of Jackalope Brewery on Eighth Avenue near Division Street will be rehabbed and converted to Wilson Coffee Shop. The Marchetti Company has the $60,000 contract.

Regilding the arches

The McDonald's restaurant at 3470 Lebanon Pike is being torn down, but can't be rebuilt in the same location because of "storm drain and pipes." So it's being re-erected at a different portion of the parcel. The 4,587-square-foot fast food joint will cost $549,000. W.R. Newman & Associates has the job.

4 Wall and a roof

Lighting designers 4 Wall Entertainment are prepping their new Nashville space. Harvest wil rehab 50,000 square feet of office and 57,000 square feet of warehouse at 820 Cowan St. — a former paper sales warehouse — for the company. The project costs $317,000.

Brazilian dollars

The group behind the local outpost of Brazilian steakhouse chain Rodizio Grill has pulled the papers for their makeover of space at 166 Second Ave. N. after $830,000 in work from Hawkins Development.
