A 25-story mixed-use building is being eyed for a Midtown site next to which boutique hotel Graduate Nashville is under construction and across from Cathedral of the Incarnation.

Scottsdale, Arizona-based Cleveland Associates LP & Nordman Associates own the 0.41-acre site, which has an address of 2012 West End Ave. The owners acquired the property in 2004 for $2.56 million, according to Metro records.

Cleveland Associates is affiliated with Chicago-based developer Clark Street Holdings LLC. Of Note, the company acquired Palmer Plaza in Midtown, located only two blocks to the east of the site, in March 2015 for $50 million.

According to a Metro document, Clark Street Holdings is seeking a tower that would offer 360 rental apartments, a garage with 420 parking spaces and ground-level retail space spanning 6,500 square feet. The owner is seeking a specific plan rezoning, with an Oct. 25 Metro Planning Commission meeting slated.

To the east of the parcel slated for the 25-story tower is the aforementioned 12-story, 203-room Graduate hotel, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2019. (Read more here.)

An empty building last home to a Jack in the Box remains on the site from which the planned tower will partly rise. The document notes the building also will take the footprint of the parcel last home to a Taco Bell building. Graduate Hotel developer AJ Capital, which is also Chicago-based, owns that parcel and it is unclear if either the company will sell to CA or a land lease will be executed. The two parcels span 0.84 acres.

CA officials could be reached for comment.

If standing today, the building — for which no official name is listed on the document — would be Midtown’s tallest at 299 feet. SkyHouse Nashville on 17th Avenue, by comparison, rises 289 feet. Huntsville-based The Propst Co. is planning two towers at the former West End Summit site, with the taller of the pair expected to rise more than 400 feet.

CA has enlisted Nashville-based land-planning and engineering firm Barge Design Solutions to assist. Chicago-based Solomon Cordwell Buenz is the architect.

CA Ventures has undertaken the development of multiple large-scale buildings, primarily in the Midwest. The company’s portfolio includes university residential housing, hotels, office buildings, senior living facilities and residential/retail structures.
