  1. Don’t forget the Childress Klein Tower “The Element” that is under construction now and will be 18 stories. There is also a new 18 story tower slated for Elliston Place by Grace Development reported by the tennessean this week. You also forgot to mention the 15 story Eakin Tower in the Gulch which broke ground last fall as well. Check http://www.urbanplanet.org for the latest and sometimes unknown development for Nashville.
