The project will also include multiple onsite parking garages and the renovation of existing conference centre space.

Downtown Nashville’s first mixed-use destination will offer tenants and residences direct access to shopping and dining, connectivity to an elevated Nashville food market as well as a rooftop amenity terrace that will offer panoramic views.
