About Signature Tower
Signature Tower is a projected mixed-use skyscraper which has been approved for construction in Nashville, Tennessee, United States. Groundbreaking was originally scheduled for 2007, but has been delayed. When completed, it will contain condominiums, office space, a Kimpton-brand Hotel Palomar Nashville, and retail space. The building was originally planned to have 70 stories and stand 1,030 feet (314 m) in height. That would have made it the tallest building in the South and the tallest building in the US outside of New York City and Chicago, surpassing Bank of America Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia by 7 feet (2 m). However, in December 2008, developer Tony Giarratana announced that the project would be downsized, due to the economic recession. Giarratana stated that the number of condos would be reduced from around 600 to under 100, but the average condo size would more than double from an average of 1,500 square feet (140 m) to 3,500 sq ft (330 m). The height of the revised Signature Tower is 807 feet (246 m) and 50 stories tall. The Signature Tower is being developed by Giarratana LLC at an estimated cost of US$250 to 370 million.
