Massive Fifth + Broadway project releases new renderings
The team behind the $430 million Fifth + Broadway project that’s reshaping a high-profile corner in downtown Nashville have released new renderings.
The redevelopment of the former Nashville Convention Center will include more than 380 residential units, a 26-story, 385,000-square-foot office tower, 230,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, a renovated conference center, the National Museum of African American Music and more than 2,000 parking spaces.
The project is being developed by OliverMcMillan and Spectrum | Emery.
Already announced tenants at the site include Swedish fashion retailer H&M and a multi-level, 100,000-square-foot food hall and entertainment venue by The Food Hall Co. parent company Front Burner Restaurants. The Nashville food hall will feature dozens of local food stalls showcasing an array of international cuisines.
Nashville restaurateur Tom Morales – who had previously announced plans to open an eatery and entertainment venue at the site – said he’s reassessing those plans and has ongoing negotiations with the team.
Pat Emery of the development team said the goal of Fifth + Broadway is to complement the existing venues on Lower Broadway and bring a new experience to the street that will appeal to tourists, conventioneers, visitors, downtown residents and office workers.
“We’re not trying to change the vibe of the street, we’re trying to add to it,” Emery said.
The renderings released this week reflect Fifth + Broadway’s final designs. The projection is slated for completion in spring 2020.
