Gresham, Smith and Partners was proud to accept the WORK award from the Nashville Downtown Partnership at their 2017 Annual Meeting & Awards Luncheon, held October 18 at the Omni Nashville Hotel. The WORK award recognizes a major business or retailer choosing or renewing a downtown location and whose outstanding achievements may be catalysts in attracting additional downtown tenants. GS&P recently relocated its headquarters supporting more than 400 local employees from the Nashville City Center to the iconic new GS&P-designed 222 tower in the SoBro district. The firm is also leading the design of several major downtown projects including the Nashville Yards and Fifth + Broadway mixed-use developments.

“GS&P’s impact across Nashville and in downtown specifically is tremendous,” said Al Pramuk, P.E., chairman and CEO at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “We’re designing many signature architectural projects like 222, Nashville Yards, Fifth + Broadway, 1100 Charlotte Avenue and Lifeway’s new headquarters that are transforming our central business district and propelling us forward as a world-class city. And we’re also leading important infrastructure projects like the Division Street bridge extension, I-24 bridge rehabilitation, Metro Water overflow abatement program and the Metro Nashville Main Library parking garage expansion that are essential to the city’s growth. As a multi-discipline firm, we’re uniquely positioned to support Nashville’s success in many different ways. It’s an honor to be recognized by the Nashville Downtown Partnership for the work we’re doing, especially in 2017 as we celebrate our 50th anniversary.”

Other award winners included new 45-story luxury residential tower 505 Nashville in the LIVE category, which recognizes residential developments; the Nashville Predators in the PLAY category, which recognizes arts and entertainment achievements; and Bridgestone Tower, Lipscomb University and 222, home of GS&P’s new headquarters, in the INVEST category, which recognizes infrastructure and development achievements. The event featured guest speaker Gabe Klein, author of Start-Up City.

Last month, GS&P was named to the Nashville Business Journal’s list of the 50 fastest-growing private companies in the city. The firm was also the recipient of NAIOP Nashville’s “2017 Development of the Year” award for its design of the 1100 Charlotte Avenue tower.
