Design firm mum on major mixed-use project seemingly slated for convention center site

Now you see it...

Dorsky + Yue International LLC — an architecture company with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Washington D.C. and Cleveland — has removed from its website an image of a massive mixed-use project seemingly planned for the site of the old Nashville Convention Center.

The rendering, seen below, was removed after the Post contacted the design firm this week. Dorsky + Yue officials did not return phone calls and emails seeking comment.

Prior to its removal, the project information section read as follows: “A mixed-use development that includes 105,500 SF of retail and entertainment, 140,000 SF of offices, 136 units of residential and a 350-key hotel.”

Note in the rendering what seems to be signage (on the light yellow building) for the proposed National Museum of African American Music and for a House of Blues venue (on the darker small building to the lower right) that has been mooted as a new anchor for the high-traffic corner across from Bridgestone Arena. The building with "Midtown" signage apparently sits at the northwest corner of the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue.

The Monkey gets Frothy on Fifth

The Frothy Monkey will soon open within the central business district at 235 Fifth Ave. N., the Nashville Business Journal reports (read here).

Interestingly, the popular cafe will operate from space that seemingly has suffered less-than-ideal luck the past few years. Most recently, the space was home to Bibap Fusion Rice. Prior to that, the space was supposed to house a sandwich shop that never materialize. And previous to that, Sherlock's Book Emporium did business from the spot. The latter operation, though very bohemian and distinctive, was simply poorly suited for the locale.

Perhaps The Frothy Monkey — which got its start in 12South and only recently opened at Grimey's on Eighth Avenue and near Five Points in Franklin — will be a hit and give the space (and the newly streetscaped segment of Fifth) some stability.
