Gresham, Smith and Partners will provide architecture, interior design, structural engineering and master planning services for Nashville Yards, a 15-acre mixed-use development planned for several blocks in Nashville, Tenn.

Tennessean reports that the downtown Nashville project will take up a four-acre portion of the overall 15-acre former LifeWay Christian Resources campus.

According to a release, the as-yet-unnamed Nashville entertainment district will be anchored by a 4,000-seat venue, alongside a luxury-oriented Regal Cinemas multiplex, a boutique hotel with some 240 rooms, and a smaller entertainment venue with a capacity of 600-700. LIVE in Los Angeles, The O2 in London and Mercedes-Benz Platz in Berlin.

AEG's flagship venue will be a 4,000-capacity music venue.

SWVP's Nashville Yards is a multi-phase office, retail, hospitality, entertainment and residential project that will span the western edge of downtown and stretch from Broadway north past Church Street.

He added that such a development opportunity needed to be "not just special, but remarkable".

"We're really creating a destination for not only live entertainment, but also for good food and beverage options". A four-acre parcel has been purchased (with an option to buy 1.5 more acres) by entertainment giant AEG for its latest "entertainment district" complex.

"With the new development, Nashville Yards once again becomes the gateway to the city through the creative combination of outstanding buildings, a layered walkable environment and open green space, linking this underutilized land back into the city fabric", said GS&P Principal Joe Bucher in a prepared statement.

The new entertainment district will be within walking distance to the Music City Center, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Bridgestone Arena, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, The Johnny Cash Museum, and Nashville's Honky Tonks.
