Gresham Smith Celebrates Opening of Lexington Office at City Center

Relocated Office Neighbors Several Gresham Smith-Designed Projects

Gresham Smith, a top-ranked architecture, engineering and design firm with more than $290 million in annual gross revenue and 26 offices across the United States, is excited to announce that it has completed the design of its new Lexington, Kentucky office, and employees have moved into the space on West Main Street in the central business district.

Gresham Smith has had a presence in Lexington since 2016. The firm’s new offices now occupy 6,000 square feet on the third floor of The Offices at City Center— a 13-story, mixed-use development prominently located in the core of downtown Lexington. The Class-A office neighbors several Gresham Smith-designed projects, including the award-winning Town Branch Commons, bordering the south of the office, and Phoenix Park, bordering the east of the office.

As part of the firm’s design approach, the space supports workplace flexibility, mobility and a rich sense of community, featuring a variety of collaborative and heads-down workstations.

“Our new Lexington office is conveniently located within close proximity to many of our projects, clients and partners, allowing us to strengthen longstanding relationships and broaden our reach,” said Rodney Chester, CEO and Board Chair of Gresham Smith. “The new space enables our Lexington team to better connect with each other and with the community.”

Gresham Smith specializes in providing engineering and landscape architecture services for Transportation and Land Planning clients in the Lexington area, including the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) and the University of Kentucky. Recent local projects include the University of Kentucky’s Bicycle Master Plan, 900 Block Multifamily Retrofit and Coldstream Industrial Park Master Plan. Current projects also include Splash! at Charles Young Park, set to be completed this summer, and the recently adopted Imagine New Circle Road study, which received unanimous planning commission approval.

In addition to involvement with LFUCG boards and commission organizations, American Society of Highway Engineers Kentucky chapters, Kentucky Society of Professional Engineers and the University of Kentucky’s American Society of Civil Engineers group, the office also partners with Trees Lexington and to support the community.
