The downtown YMCA on Monday announced dramatic plans to redevelop its Church Street property to include a 60-story residential tower.

  • Developer Tony Giarratana, who led the construction of several residential buildings downtown, will oversee the project.

Why it matters: The massive tower would be the tallest residential building in Nashville and would become part of a new nucleus of downtown development changing the face of the city.

  • It's near Nashville Yards, home to Amazon's upcoming corporate offices and the Capitol View mixed-use development.
  • YMCA expects its downtown location to be at the epicenter of a population boom, estimating that some 20,000 residents could be within walking distance in the next five to seven years.
