Bravo Development’s Tim Reynolds has announced his plan to develop 30 Music Square West in the Music Row area. A five-story development featuring condominiums and restaurant space is planned, where the history of RCA Studio A, which previously occupied part of the property, will be commemorated in narrative panels and photos. The new construction will bring 147,000 square feet and building will commence in spring 2015. The development will include 80 upscale residential units, ranging from one bedroom layouts to penthouse suites. Amenities will include a rooftop community area, and a dog park. Approximately 2,000 square feet of restaurant space, which will tribute the history of RCA Studio A, will also be included.
Bravo is in discussions with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum regarding ways to salvage the six chandeliers that will be left in the studio once the console, recording equipment, furniture and other contents, which all belong to the tenant, are removed.
The developer has given a deadline of 5 p.m. on Sept. 30 for those who want to submit a reasonable offer to purchase the building or pursue alternative plans.
“I have always respected those who felt the studio could be saved and from the beginning Bravo has considered all options to do so,” said Tim Reynolds, owner of Bravo Development. “At the same time, I must soon move forward with my plans now that I have done my due diligence and determined that salvaging the building is not structurally or financially feasible. Bravo and the design team at Smith Gee Studios are very excited about the development and the plans we have made to honor Studio A.
“Music Row has long been a neighborhood of creative people who want to live and work in a close-knit environment near the heart of downtown,” he continues. “This project will provide more people that opportunity by marrying the comforts of high-end, custom homes with the ease and convenience of urban living. We also have gone to great lengths to ensure that it appropriately commemorates what occurred in those walls so that the legacy of Studio A is never forgotten.”
