There are also prospects for a new tallest (if built before the YMCA property development) on the next block to the north on KVB. SoBro is growing fast.
These are all such exciting developments.

SoBro is the definite hotspot for skyscrapers in Nashville. I think that entire neighborhood--extending into Rutledge Hill--will be comprised of skyscrapers and dense infill development by the early 2030s.

At this rate, its only a matter of time before a developer finesses a skyscraper to hit 1000 ft.

The current FAA cap is 750' due to proximity to the airport

Is that confirmed for the entire downtown and midtown region?

There used to be a law where nothing could be taller than the state capitol. fortunately the building is on a hill so some older structures could be taller. Not sure since the AT&T Batman building if this still applies.

There is 1 runway #31/13 that runs NW in the BNA property. Not sure how often flight patterns go over downtown Nashville. this may affect the downtown region. Most of the time flights head NE to/from Donelson.

Weird how BNA deal is brought up so often with the airport.

Isn’t Hartsfield-Jackson just as close to downtown Atlanta? I guess though now that I think about it, I don’t recall ever seeing planes fly over downtown ATL, while I can personally recall flying over downtown Nashville in the past on approach to BNA.

BNA’s longest runway (31/13) has to be used for widebodies taking off with a full fuel load. For example, the 787 used to get to London or the 767s or 747s used for cargo will take off of 31 and head directly over five points area. If they are heading west there isn’t enough clearance.

The fix is supposed to be lengthening 2L/20R which would allow them to avoid using 31. That being said, it would still be a cross wind runway, so I’m still not sure if it would be allowed to go through.

Yeah, this is why I ask. Several cities have airports reasonably close to their downtowns, yet have skyscrapers in the 800-1200 ft range.

Look at these downtowns below and the airport distances, with Nashville used as a reference:

Nashville downtown to airport: 8.6 miles
Miami downtown to airport: 9.2 miles
Philly downtown to airport: 10 miles
Austin downtown to airport: 9.7 miles
San Fran dowtown to airport: 12.2 miles
Seattle downtown to airport: ~13 miles
Phoenix downtown to airport: 3.7 miles
Boston downtown to airport: 2.5 miles
Manhattan downtown to LGA airport: 11 miles
Charlotte downtown to airport: 6.2 miles
Houston downtown to airport: ~10 miles

Does it have to do with direction of the runways--whether or not they point towards downtown for planes taking off? If that is the case, I'd say that was poor planning from the start. LOL

May have a lot to do with the flight pattern from the airport. In Washington DC recall having the runway go up/down Potomac. You have other restrictions to not fly over the monuments. Most desirable is to fly over water so no structures & no homes in the way.

Another point here is residential areas where you get complaints for noise. If you look at Midway in Chicago add in the times in the past a plane fell short & into houses. Over the years spend a lot of money removing structures adjacent to the runways. In modern times want the planes to fall into cornfields.

For BNA fortunate to have I-40 along the north border to keep planes at an altitude. I can't think of any nearby residential areas.
