Cushman & Wakefield | Cornerstone and Franklin-based Spectrum | Emery are having Gresham Smith & Partners continue to update designs for their planned mixed-use development that is expected to overhaul the footprint of the Nashville Convention Center.
A blog site (check here) that supplements Architects Newspaper first ran updated renderings (seen below), with Pat Emery, SE president, stressing that the images are not final.
“We’re still in the concept phase for design,” Emery told the Post this morning. “We’re listening to people and making adjustments.”
The project would comprise more than 1 million square feet. It calls for $230 million of investment, led by an office tower of up to 840,000 square feet and about 25 stories. The project is to include 244,000 square feet of retail, 50,000 square feet for the National Museum of African American Music and an underground parking garage. It would face Broadway, Commerce Street and Fifth Avenue North.
Others participating in the project, for which a groundbreaking date has yet to be announced, include general contractor Skanska, landscape architect Hawkins Partners, Sims Strategic Diversity Consultants, retail consultants Vision Street and local public relations firm Hall Strategies.
