Four Seasons Hotel & Private Residences
Nashville’s Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences is a 40-story, mixed-use development that is one of the tallest towers in Nashville.
Targeting LEED Gold
Located in the city’s SoBro neighborhood, the building is composed of 143 luxury condominium units, a 236-key 5-star hotel, a 380-car parking facility, and 9,500 square feet of upscale street level retail. The expression and presence of the building at both the street level and within the skyline of the city was a significant design driver for the project. Located along a primary path between the Honky Tonk Highway along lower Broadway and the Ascend Amphitheater, the base actively engages the ground floor and enhances the pedestrian experience between these nodes of activity. SCB sought to create a design that embodied the ethos of Nashville and its music culture, and found inspiration in the iconic image of an acoustic guitar; well-crafted of fine materials, the instrument’s aesthetic properties parallel the architectural qualities of the podium clad in warm-colored panels and weathered steel. The podium is punctuated with large expanses of glass, activating the façade both day and night and visually connecting the streetscape with activity inside the building. The building’s adjacency to the historic Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge allowed the design team to develop unique program and place-making elements, such as an elevated, pop-up performance venue and an area below the bridge where food trucks and people can gather. Above the podium rises an elegant, modern, and sleek glass tower that is oriented to capture exceptional views and reflect the luxury of the condominiums and five-star hotel within. The project is targeting LEED Gold.
Organizationally, the mixed-use program offers two sets of amenities; one for hotel guests and one for residents. A residential entry and lobby is located along the quieter, and less traveled 2nd Avenue South, while the hotel entry, drop off and lobby is located on Demonbreun Street. The 14th floor offers a beautifully landscaped rooftop garden, lounge, and relaxation areas exclusively for condominium owners. Hotel amenities are located on the 7th floor and include luxury spa facilities, an infinity edge lap pool, lounge deck, and rooftop bar. The hotel offers guests a full suite of conference and event facilities, including a 10,000-square-foot ballroom and pre-function space with views to the Cumberland River and the city skyline.
