A 35-story JW Marriott Hotel with up to 600 rooms and a 400,000-square-foot office tower will be built on the 3.7-acre United Methodist Publishing House headquarters site at Demonbreun Street and Eighth Avenue South, in Nashville.
The $350 million project, developed and owned by Turnberry Associates and and designed by Arquitectonica, will transform land across the street from Music City Center, the massive convention center that opened in SoBro last year.
The hotel will have three restaurants, including one on the 35th floor with dedicated elevators, plus up to 60,000 square feet of meeting space. “The kind amenities we’re going to have in this hotel are going to be far superior to anything that’s been built here,” said Jeffrey Soffer, Turnberry’s CEO.
Turnberry Associates expects to break grounds on the $350 million project over the summer and the opening is scheduled for late 2017. At 35 stories, the JW Marriott will be the tallest building in Nashville, two stories taller than the iconic AT&T tower.
