In a testament to the rise of Nashville as a vibrant city and tourist destination, Four Seasons has just announced a new luxury hotel and private residences. The groundbreaking for this new development in downtown Nashville will take place in April 2019. Tennessee’s first Four Seasons Hotel is a joint project with the Four Seasons hospitality company; Congress Group, a Boston-based real estate firm; and AECOM Capital, the investment arm of AECOM.
As reported by The Tennesseean, “hotel development is one of of the most heated areas of investment in Nashville because of booming tourism.” Currently in the pipeline are a W Hotel, Virgin Hotel, two Marriott Moxy-branded properties, a Grand Hyatt, and Margaritaville Hotel.
Located along the Cumberland River in the emerging SoBro area, Four Seasons Nashville will occupy a new-build high-rise building that will stand 542 feet tall and have 40 storys. Planned to be LEED Gold certified, the $400 million skyscraper is expected to be one of the state’s greenest buildings. There will be 236 guestrooms, a luxury spa and fitness center. The luxury residences, soon to be offered for pre-sale, will be managed by Four Seasons. The Tennessean reports that the approved building plans also indicate a future rooftop garden, events venues, restaurants, and ground-floor retail space.
