Work on a new Virgin Hotel located by 17th and Division near the Music Row Roundabout will begin by October, according to a story in

The hotel will include 240 rooms and suites as well as 15 residential penthouses.

D.F. Chase will be the general contractor for the project and the team will use Atlanta-based architecture firm BLUR Workshop for the design. Early renderings show two different buildings, with the tallest of the two rising 13 stories and about 160 feet. The hotel will reportedly feature a centerpiece bar, a live entertainment venue, an outside veranda with views of the city skyline, a rooftop pool, a gym, a wellness center, and 14,000-square-feet of meeting space.

“With Virgin Hotels Chicago now open and bustling, we’re thrilled to reveal our plans for our next property, Virgin Hotels Nashville,” Raul Leal, CEO of Virgin Hotels, said in a press release. “Partnering with BLUR Workshop and interior design firm MarkZeff has enabled us to incorporate our musical heritage and playful tone of voice into this new building, bringing something entirely different to the Nashville hotel scene.”

The hotel is slated to open in fall 2016.
