Work stopped on the Radisson Red boutique hotel project in the city center.
The project includes the renovation of a building built in 1954 and located at 333 Union Street (recognized as the former home of the ground floor Wild Eggs restaurant). Now gutted, the four-story structure (pictured) will receive a six-story addition that will house the hotel.
Manek Management, owner of the building, declined to comment on the reasons why construction stopped. The Post was unable to determine when work stopped, but various sources said no activity had been observed at the site since at least November.
Nashville-based Southeast Venture is handling the design work (click View Gallery in the photo above to see a render), DAV Construction as a general contractor, and Epoch Design and Construction also participating in the effort.
Manek Holdings LLC paid $ 3.85 million for the property in June 2017, according to Metro records. The existing four-story structure – occupied at one time by the Metropolitan Federal Savings and Loan Company – spans approximately 29,600 square feet.
Several hotels operate near the site, including The Bobby, DoubleTree by Hilton, Dream, Indigo and Fairlane. Construction continues in a neighboring building to house a TownePlace Suites.
