Gulch building Pine Street Flats lands LEED certification

The U.S. Green Building Council has designated as silver LEED certified Gulch mixed-use building Pine Street Flats.

As such, the seven-story 296-apartment-unit structure is the largest multi-unit residential project in Tennessee to garner LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) status. Located at the southeast corner of the Pine Street and 11th Avenue South intersection, Pine Street Flats also offers 17,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space, and a 584-space parking garage.

Nashville-based MarketStreet Enterprises, the Metro-appointed master developer of The Gulch, developed the building and announced the LEED certification today. The company engaged greenSTUDIO, a division of Nashville-based Hastings Architecture Associates and led by director Mike Leonard, to facilitate and manage the LEED certification process.

“Pine Street Flats continues MarketStreet’s vision of the Gulch’s urban redevelopment, which is to create lasting, positive changes to downtown’s built environment,” Jay Turner, managing director of MarketStreet, said in a release. “This project transformed three acres of brownfield land into a vibrant, mixed-use [building] that gives Nashvillians the opportunity to live and enjoy an environmentally conscious, urban neighborhood.”

Recognized by the USGBC in the LEED Building Design and Construction 2009 rating system, Pine Street Flats earned exemplary performance credits for the creation of open space and the use of regional materials during construction. Regional priority credits were awarded for public transportation access, water use reduction and optimized energy performance.

During that same year, The Gulch was designated the first LEED-certified neighborhood in the South under the LEED for Neighborhood Development rating system.

Crane being erected at Gulch Crossing site

Some folks who follow construction projects contend the first major on-site sign of a development's evolution is the erection of a tower crane. On that theme, the first of two tower cranes is being assembled at the Gulch Crossing construction site in The Gulch. The crane is being positioned on 11th Avenue about halfway between the Demonbreun Street Viaduct and Laurel Street (the base of the blue crane can be seen in the below photo courtesy of Ron Brewer). MarketStreet Enterprises is the developer of the mixed-use (office and retail space) Gulch Crossing, which will face 11th Avenue South. JE Dunn Construction is serving as the general contractor with Earl Swensson Associates as the architect.
