This 21-story, 390-key contemporary hotel features a garage, rooftop pool and dining area and 8,200 square feet of meeting space. The hotel includes an amenity deck on the eighth ﬂoor that features the pool deck, a ﬁtness center and a dining room/bar with impressive views of downtown Nashville.
The hotel’s glass corner design element helps deﬁne the importance of the urban corner of Korean Veterans Boulevard and 3rd Avenue. Metal accent panels on the exterior offer a pop of color and enhance visual interest. Vertical and horizontal architectural louver screens and two types of perforated metal add more visual interest and create a pleasing composition across the nearly 70-foot tall, 300-stall garage located above the ﬁrst ﬂoor.
Due to a storm tunnel that runs diagonally across the site, all parking was structured above grade. So that maximum space could be captured for hotel uses, the garage is located between occupied ﬂoors. Various screening options were studied to conceal the visibility of the garage, maintain natural ventilation and articulate an appealing design for the podium element.
