Eakin Partners Begin Site Work on Gulch Offices

I recently drove by the corner of 12th Avenue South and Demonbreun Street in the Gulch and noticed that the old tire repair and replacement building was in the process of being cleared. I had not heard anything about this project since early to mid 2007, but it appears that Eakin is going to be building its twin office tower concept or another office space concept. This property was expected to be a 16-20 story tower and would impressively change the landscape and entrance to the Gulch which lacks any office space of consequence.

The Gulch is most notably known for its residential and condo new construction projects. Currently the Icon, the Velocity, and the Terrazzo are all under construction and will deliver almost 1,000 condos between the summer of 2008 and the end of 2009. It is our belief that the Gulch will become the premier downtown residential area of Nashville by 2010 if construction in Sobro is further delayed.
