proposed 40 story buildings

Tennessean Reports: 40-story SoBro project gets planning commission’s OK

A  $350 million mixed-use project planned for the area south of Broadway took a key step forward Thursday with the proposed 40-story height winning approval from the Metro Planning Commission.

The 7-1 vote came after a discussion about the future of high-rise development and density around the edges of downtown, including near the Cumberland River. A key issue was whether or not a change in policy or a height variance alone was required to allow the developers an additional 10 stories of height. —Tennessean.com
