Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the Congress Group Inc., a Boston-based real estate investment and development firm; and AECOM Capital, the investment arm of AECOM, today celebrated the groundbreaking of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Nashville.
“Today, we officially celebrate the start of construction on an iconic tower that will become synonymous with Nashville’s skyline,” said Dean Stratouly, president of The Congress Group. “Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Nashville will be the premiere luxury destination to live and stay. In a city where business is booming, and individuals come from around the world to experience the culture and music, this property will dramatically rewrite what is possible for any resident or visitor.”
Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Nashville is a five-star, full service hotel with 236 keys, a world-class spa, an array of lavish amenities, and 143 Private Residences that will set a new standard for premium living in Music City.
Four Seasons is renowned for operating some of the best hotels, resorts, and residences in the world, and for its dedication to service and quality excellence. The brand’s arrival to Nashville, which will be the first Four Seasons in the state of Tennessee, is the culmination of nearly a decade of economic and cultural advancement and momentum in the city.
Matching the arrival of major businesses and corporate headquarters in Nashville, the new Hotel and Private Residences will be located in the heart of downtown. It is strategically located adjacent to the Cumberland River, within a block of fresh and exciting culinary and nightlife experiences throughout SoBro and on Broadway, and just across the street from West Riverfront Park and the award-winning Ascend Amphitheater. This prime location will make the project the ideal spot for visitors and residents to experience the best of Nashville.
Construction is being led by AECOM Hunt and is designed as LEED Gold. With demolition work on the site having been completed in May, foundation work will commence now throughout the rest of 2019 with the project aiming to go vertical in early 2020.
“When Four Seasons chooses to enter a market, it seeks to redefine what luxury quality, service and lifestyle can be,” said Timothy D. Haskin, senior managing director of AECOM Capital. “To achieve that, up to the standards of Four Seasons, you have to assemble an exceptional team of architects, designers and visionaries, and we’ve done just that with our project team.”
The project is being designed and executed by a world class team of architects, designers and engineers, which includes:
SCB, project architect;
HOK, interior design of the luxury residences and amenity spaces;
Marzipan, interior design of the hotel and public spaces;
Barge Design Group, civil engineer and permitting;
Cosentini Associates, MEP engineer;
MKA, structural engineer; and
