HDLA, in collaboration with ESa, worked with Unico Properties to re-imagine the exterior public gathering spaces at One Nashville Place, an iconic 24-story, Class A high-rise in Downtown Nashville’s Central Business District. Using the space’s existing features, HDLA seeks to transform its dated, underutilized public plazas into vibrant places for the everyday office tenant and the casual passerby. The newly envisioned spaces feature new planting, seating, and garage screen wall treatments along the northern linear plaza, while the southern plaza re-imagines the existing sunken area as a communal co-working amenity space, featuring amphitheatre seating, lighting, paving, and planting to create an extension of the proposed interior amenity space. HDLA also worked to re-imagine the Printers Alley corridor, transforming a back-of-house loading dock into a tenant-occupied beer garden, capitalizing on the existing energy of Printers Alley and extending the entry of the corridor to Commerce Street. The project will be implemented in multiple phases, with the Printers Alley phase opening in 2020.
