Topping-out Ceremony: Belmont University – Jack C. Massey Center

Belmont University hosted a topping-out ceremony Tuesday, June 14, for its new 125,000 sf Jack C. Massey Center, which will serve as the university’s new “front door” starting in August 2023.

The building has been named in honor of entrepreneur and businessman, Jack C. Massey, via a $15 million gift from Mr. Massey’s daughter, Barbara Massey Rogers, and the Jack C. Massey Foundation. The six-story building on 15th Avenue will house a variety of University teams—including the Belmont Data Collaborative, the Transformational Innovation Hub and the Cone Center for Entrepreneurship—all highlighting key aspects of Mr. Massey’s approach to business.

State-of-the-art collaboration workshops will provide spaces for students, faculty and staff to come together with the goal of using their business skills and expertise to solve complex problems. The Center will also be home to a new Welcome Center for the University and house its Admissions Team.

When completed, the Jack C. Massey Center will stand as the tallest academic building on the campus’ Eastern side, creating a signature welcome area for admissions and housing innovative new academic programs emblematic of Belmont’s continued growth.

Our project team partners include RC Matthews as general contractor; RBA as structural engineer; Catalyst Design Group as civil engineer and HDLA as the landscape architect.
