Report: Virgin Hotel backer exploring other development options

The Nashville investor behind the Virgin Hotel planned for Music Row is exploring alternative options for the property, according to the Nashville Business Journal.

Plans for the Virgin Hotel were first announced in 2014, with renderings released last January. The Business Journal reports construction executive Dean Chase, who owns the site and is in charge of raising money to build the hotel, is sizing up other development possibilities for the prime spot just off the Music Row roundabout — even though Virgin officials say they're still working to move the project forward.

To be clear, Chase's preference remains doing a deal with Virgin, according to sources. Exploring other options does not preclude the possibility that a Virgin Hotel will wind up appearing on this site, though at best, the hotel now wouldn't open until 2017, which is later than originally stated.

Additional options could include office buildings, apartments or condos. For the full article, click here.

Of all accounting firms based in Nashville or not, Deloitte has the largest local presence. The company operates in offices both in Hermitage (at which a large IT team is based) and downtown.
