GS&P Provides Design, Planning for Nashville Yards Development

15 Acres of Entertainment, Retail, Office, Residential Space Will Transform Urban Core

June 16, 2017   |   Nashville,  Tenn.   |   Projects

Gresham, Smith and Partners is providing architecture, interior design, structural engineering and master planning services for Nashville Yards, a 15-acre mixed-use development planned for several blocks on downtown’s western edge, stretching from Broadway to Church Street. The project will create a new gateway to Nashville’s urban core and transform the city’s skyline, adding more than 4-million square feet of entertainment, retail, office and residential space.
 
“The project team set out to develop a high-quality, urban community that celebrates Nashville’s roots while introducing an eclectic mix of spaces that propel us forward as a world-class city,” said Joe Bucher, AIA, principal at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “As its name suggests, the Nashville Yards site was once a railyard; it was the place that people and goods entered Nashville. With the new development, Nashville Yards once again becomes the gateway to the city through the creative combination of outstanding buildings, a layered walkable environment and open green space, linking this underutilized land back into the city fabric. It is an honor to work for Southwest Value Partners on this project that we believe will set the high-water mark for urban living in our exciting city.”
 
GS&P’s Corporate + Urban Design Studio is proud to be involved in several of Nashville’s most high-profile projects. In 2018, LifeWay will relocate from its current campus to a new GS&P-designed headquarters in the Capitol View development, neighboring the GS&P-designed 1100 Charlotte Avenue tower, home to HCA subsidiaries Sarah Cannon, Parallon and HealthTrust.
