Bravo Development announced plans Friday to build a high-end condominium building with restaurant space at the current site of RCA Studio A located at 30 Music Square West.
The planned five-story development will commemorate the historic studio with narrative panels and photos.
Bravo Development also is in discussions with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum about ways to salvage the six custom chandeliers that will be left in the studio once the recording equipment and other contents, all which belong to the tenant, are removed.
Tim Reynolds, owner of Bravo Development, is moving forward to redevelop the space after determining that saving the studio, built in 1965, was not structurally or financially feasible.
Additionally, Reynolds said the floors of the studio once marked as salvageable cannot be saved because they contain asbestos.
Reynolds has established a deadline of 5 p.m. on September 30 for anyone who wants to submit a reasonable offer to purchase the building to pursue alternative plans.
He said, “I have always respected those who felt the studio could be saved and from the beginning Bravo has considered all options to do so.”
The 147,000 square foot planned development will include 80 residential units ranging from one and two-bedroom layouts to penthouse suites.
Construction is scheduled to begin next spring.
