Brasfield & Gorrie has completed Peabody Plaza at Rolling Mill Hill. The Eakin Partners property sits at the southern gateway to downtown Nashville, and the mixed-use office building’s tenants will include Concord, Guaranty Home Mortgage Corporation, and Fourth Capital corporate offices as well as a ground floor bank branch. Brasfield & Gorrie completed build-outs for these tenants. Peabody Plaza also includes space for a coffee shop and a full-service restaurant.

The nine-story, 280,000 sq ft project’s site was previously a vacant parking lot. Peabody Plaza also includes a five-story below-grade, 371,000 sq ft parking deck with 1,000 spaces. A 6,000 sq ft amenity deck overlooks downtown and the Cumberland River. A 0.75-acre park located just outside of the office tower, partially situated over the underground parking garage, provides ample green space. Brasfield & Gorrie self-performed the structure’s concrete frame.

“Our ability to self-perform work gives us superior control over schedule, cost, quality and safety, and the project team’s openness to innovation further enhanced these benefits,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Hal Matern. “We are grateful for our ongoing, long-term relationship with Eakin Partners and the opportunity to enhance this growing Nashville neighborhood.”

John Eakin said that Peabody Plaza is unique because of all the open outdoor space it offers tenants to work and relax. Peabody Plaza is the sixth office building that Eakin Partners and Brasfield & Gorrie have completed together, and they have all been on schedule and on budget.

If 10-foot-tall sections of glass were lined up, side by side, the glass used on Peabody Plaza would extend a mile and a half. The structure contains more than 4 million lb of reinforcing steel, 108 million lb of concrete and more than 210 mi of post-tension cable—enough to stretch from Nashville to Atlanta. Brasfield & Gorrie collaborated with Nashville-based architecture and interior design firm HASTINGS on the building and buildouts for Guaranty Home Mortgage Corporation and Fourth Capital. LINES was the architect for Concord.
