CRAIN STARTS CONSTRUCTION ON TOWNEPLACE SUITES

NASHVILLE, Tenn.Crain Construction Inc. is building a 10-story, 193-room TownePlace Suites by Marriott on Charlotte Avenue, just west of Interstate 40, near downtown Nashville.

Sitework is underway and includes removing three existing buildings and doing minor grading on the .66-acre site at 1500 Charlotte Ave., according to Brent McGee, Crain Construction project manager.

3H Group Hotels and Grace Construction Consultants, both of Chattanooga, Tenn., will be the developer and Owner’s Representative, respectively, for the project. The hotel will feature an exterior of gray and red EIFS, with brick accents. The hotel sits on a four-story, post-tension concrete garage with ground-level retail.

“It’s a tight site with only three feet to the property line on the east and west elevations, so we’ll be working closely with the neighboring businesses,” said McGee, referring to City Car Auto and a new Waffle House under construction. “We’ll also be working over an existing 11-foot combined sewer the structure will have to straddle. We’ll do drilled piers on either side and the structure will span across.”

Anticipated completion for the TownePlace Suites is early 2021.
