Gresham, Smith and Partners and Boyle Investment Company were honored last week with NAIOP Nashville’s Development of the Year award for the 1100 Charlotte Avenue mixed-use tower. The award recognized Middle Tennessee’s best overall commercial real estate development from the past year. Judges evaluated projects on innovation, visual appeal, technological features, functionality and regional economic impact. 1100 Charlotte Avenue is the first component and anchor of the 32-acre Capitol View development, housing HCA subsidiaries Parallon, Sarah Cannon and HealthTrust.
“It took a great deal of passion and collaboration by everyone involved to bring this development to life,” said Jeff Kuhnhenn, AIA, senior architect at Gresham, Smith and Partners. “Our team showed its strength with a thoughtful, amenity-rich design that engages pedestrians at street level and seamlessly integrates with the surrounding Capitol View district. GS&P is proud to be recognized by NAIOP Nashville and we share this award with Boyle, HCA and its employees, as well as the downtown residents and visitors who will continue to make this development a success.”
The 16-story tower includes approximately 430,000-square-feet of office space, shared dining and conference space, 30,000 square feet of ground-level retail lease space, street parking and a 1,900-car garage. The project also features a vibrant streetscape with dining, shopping, entertainment, housing and transportation options within walking distance. GS&P helped HCA assess multiple locations for the tower before ultimately selecting the North Gulch site. The project is targeted to achieve LEED Silver certification.
