Nashville’s historic Gulch District boasts a unique and distinct industrial history. It was the original home to the downtown railroad terminal. Prior to the Civil War, railroad tracks were built to connect the cities of Louisville and Nashville. In October of 1859, scheduled trains began running between the two cities and with the exception of war, fire, and flooding they continued to run ever since. From the turn of the century until the 1950s, more than 100 trains arrived and departed from The Gulch daily. Today, the Gulch District has established itself as a melting pot for urbanites to live amongst the culture of the Nashville.
In 2006, SSR and Crosland development joined forces to build the first 14-story mixed-use high rise in The Gulch. At that time there was a growing need in the city of Nashville for more downtown housing options. Professionals young and old wanted to venture away from their daily commutes and be able to live, work, and play in one centralized community. Offering 117 residential units above four floors of commercial space. The Terrazzo Building features an intimate community of luxury condos in the heart of the city. The development is composed of a mid-century modern lobby, 16,000 SF of retail and restaurant space, and 68,000 SF of premium office space. In addition, there is a 506 car parking garage located below the building.
Because of the sustainable design, procurement, and commissioning decisions SSR provided, the Terrazzo Building earned a LEED Silver® certification, claiming its title as Nashville’s first LEED certified high-rise. Upon completion in 2009, the Terrazzo building attracted some of Nashville’s most influential professionals and corporations. For citizens of the city searching for urban views, sustainable living, and a wealth of culture Terrazzo is the answer. Much like its origins as a bustling transportation hub, the Terrazzo building is a gateway to upscale restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and the city of Nashville.
