Broadway Tower Project Effort Progresses

Brentwood-based GBT Realty has applied for a stormwater grading permit related to its future ONE22ONE mixed-use tower in The Gulch.

The application follows GBT’s having paid in September $3 million for a 0.2-acre sliver lot at Broadway and 13th Avenue South, which gives the development company a 0.78-acre site on which to work.

The Class A office tower (pictured) primarily will sit on the former Firestone site. It will rise 24 floors above grade and also offer ground-level retail space and structured parking.

The address is 1221 Broadway, with a groundbreaking having previously been slated by year’s end, according to a release from March. A 2022 completion is being targeted, with GBT not disclosing the estimated price tag to undertake the development.

Nashville-based Gresham Smith will serve as lead architect. The exterior will be primarily metal and glass.

The property does not sit within the Metro Development and Housing Agency’s Arts Center Redevelopment District, so no MDHA Design Review Committee approval will be needed.

Brasfield & Gorrie will serve as the general contractor. CBRE brokers marketing the site include Taylor Hillenmeyer, Janelle Gallagher, Frank Thomasson, and Byran Fort.
