NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A major development is underway at the gateway of downtown in the Gulch.

Gulch Union will occupy a full block between 12th and 13th Avenues and McGavock and Demonbreun Streets.

“It’s a full city block that’s being transformed into a place where people are going to live, work, and stay,” Jenna Muller of Cushman & Wakefield told News 2.

Right now, you can see phase one is under construction, which will be a 20-story office tower branded 1222 Demonbreun.

Muller says crews will eventually knock down Hot Box Fitness and the office building beside Adele’s and across from Whiskey Kitchen transforming the area.

“For many years it’s been low-rise buildings that really haven’t had a very active feel, but I think Gulch Union is really going to change that to create a very walkable, connective community.”

Once phase one is complete work will begin on a boutique hotel, residential tower, shops, and restaurants.

“It’s all going to be connected by a lushly, landscaped, elevated podium that’s going to serve as an amenity to the entire project and there’s really nothing else like it in Nashville,” Muller explained.
