2015 A new high-end office building in the Gulch, that is Nashville’s first major new office building to open since the recession and is currently the most expensive office building in the city. Gulch Crossing consists of an 8-story office building above a 6-level garage structure. The office building has a smaller footprint than the garage levels below and includes approximately 220,000 square feet of space. The garage has 2 below-grade levels and approximately 750 parking spaces. An expansion joint is located through the garage structure where it extends to the south beyond the footprint of the office building above. A small retail area is located along the west side of parking level 1 fronting 11th Avenue South. The new construction typically consists of cast-in-place, post-tensioned concrete framing and was designed in accordance with the 2006 International Building Code. Highlights include:
Demonbreun Street lobby serves as the primary entrance to the project and features a branch for the Bank of Nashville which is located adjacent to a putting green and bocce yard
Contemporary, two-story metal “boxcar” entry lobby paying homage to the site’s railroad history which is angled parallel to the train tracks cutting through the Gulch, and features illuminated outdoor couches
Lobby features two coffee tables made from a former Gulch train shed, and a feature known as “The Well” which uses a two-way mirror to create the illusion of looking down into a mineshaft
LED-illuminated monumental pedestrian staircase connects upper and lower levels of the building providing access from Demonbreun to more than 16,000 square feet of ground floor retail space along 11th Avenue and dozens of shopping and dining options located in the Gulch.
