Gresham Smith 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. As its name suggests, the Nashville Yards site was once a railyard; 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.
