“Working with Gresham Smith as a company has been phenomenal. For far too long we've been disconnected from the economy and now we have a platform to stand on and a reason to fight for social justice and economic equality.”

Kevin Fields, President and Chief Executive Officer, Louisville Central Community Centers, Inc.

“With Gresham Smith’s striking and modern design, we are showcasing pride in our community and providing a highly valuable facility for Oldham County’s residents and visitors. From the La Grange Railroad & Bluegrass Festival Model Train Show to the ‘Arts on CityPlace’ event to the premiere of the Hallmark movie, ‘The Ultimate Legacy,’ CityPlace has proven to be a dynamic site for many different types of events and has been exceptionally well-received by the public. We are looking forward to a busy 2016 and many more years of success.”

Karen Greenwell, CityPlace

“It is clear through the design that a huge value was placed on supporting the needs of our customers and their families. This facility makes it easier for our staff to ‘walk the talk’ when it comes to promoting healthy living and prevention, and it is a great example of how design professionals can create healthier places.”

Dr. William S. Paul, Director, Lentz Public Health Department

“Gresham Smith’s design team collaborated seamlessly with our staff to understand the functional requirements of the space, working hard to optimize security and circulation. But just as importantly, they listened to Murfreesboro residents who were very interested in linking the judicial center to the fabric of the community. The facility embraces its surroundings and offers a much-needed public space in downtown, perfect for lunch breaks and community gatherings. It’s a new icon for our city and we are honored to call it home.”

Ernest Burgess, Mayor, Rutherford County

“At the center of campus, it serves as an ideal, multipurpose area that is distinctly Vanderbilt in its function and appearance. It clearly demonstrates our efforts to provide students with the educational, organizational and lifestyle spaces they need to excel.”
