1100 Broadway at Gulch Central

Gulch Central introduces a forward-thinking destination for companies, creatives, and visitors. The three distinct concepts – 1100 Broadway, 1010 Broadway, and Asurion – are united as a new model for urban living.

Situated at a crucial intersection between Church Street, Broadway, 11th Avenue, and the Gulch Greenway, this new eight-acre district connects Downtown Nashville and the lower Gulch with Midtown and Capitol View – unifying the most exciting neighborhoods within Nashville’s urban core which have historically been divided by overpasses, railroads, and industrial areas.

Gulch Central establishes a vital hub of retail, dining, and office with generous public parks and open plazas for an integrated urban lifestyle. Amenities such as ground-floor retail and restaurant space encourage users to stroll through the site and dine al fresco engaged in the activated and layered urban fabric. The pedestrian-focused district is integrated into Nashville’s extensive Greenway system with a twelve-foot-wide off-street multi-use trail. Gulch Central will introduce over two acres of dedicated green space and two new trailheads to the heart of the city.

1100 Broadway is a 28-story, 750-000-square-foot Class A+ office tower with 22,800-square-feet of amenity retail and 1.4 acres of outdoor amenity space. Sited at the corner of Broadway and 12th Avenue in this historically rail-oriented development, 1100 Broadway offers a distinctive Broadway address sitting on the former home of Nashville’s daily newspaper.

Clad in glass, bronze-colored metal panel fins delineate a façade that is inspired by the columnar grid of a newspaper once produced on this site. On the ground floor, a two-story retail and office podium fronts Broadway from 11th to 12th Avenue. Carved away from the tower, a generous soffit overhangs the podium. The movement of the glass on the ground floor of the building recalls the movement of the paper through the printing process.

1100 Broadway is complemented by a 41-story, 350-unit luxury residential property. The two towers are strategically positioned as part of the Gulch Central master plan to preserve and capitalize on existing views. A residential liner along 11th Avenue activates the street while maintaining a lower-density pedestrian scale.
