Law firm will move Nashville headquarters to development’s first multi-tenant commercial office building

Nashville, TN – Bass, Berry & Sims PLC today announced it will relocate its headquarters to Nashville Yards, the 18-acre project in downtown Nashville from owner and developer Southwest Value Partners.

Southwest Value Partners broke ground on the office tower in September. View the latest renderings of the first commercial office tower at Nashville Yards.

“We have a 100-year history of investing in the growth and vitality of downtown Nashville,” said Todd Rolapp, managing partner of Bass, Berry & Sims. “We are excited to continue this tradition by relocating to Nashville Yards, a premier location with a vibrant environment that allows us to meet the evolving needs of our people and our clients.”

The largest law firm in Nashville, Bass, Berry & Sims is also recognized nationally for its work representing prominent Fortune 500 companies as well as leading regional and local businesses, including acting as primary corporate counsel for approximately 35 public companies.

“Bass, Berry & Sims is one of the preeminent law firms in the Southeast and nationally, and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about their decision to relocate their headquarters to Nashville Yards,” said Cary Mack, managing partner of Southwest Value Partners. “In our interactions, Bass, Berry & Sims was intently focused on building their presence in an exceptional space and community for the benefit of their clients and their people. We’ve worked hard to elevate our work/live/enjoy design and master plan to ensure we can exceed their expectations and help them achieve their strategic goals.”

Bass, Berry & Sims was represented in the transaction by Bert Mathews and Shane Douglas of Colliers International. “Partnering with one of Nashville’s most iconic firms to find their ideal new home has been an extraordinary honor. The Nashville Yards and the Southwest Value Partners team offered the perfect fit for Bass with shared values for unparalleled excellence in all things and a passion for the future of Nashville,” said Janet Miller, market leader & CEO of Colliers International.

The multi-tenant office tower, which will serve as the new headquarters of Pinnacle Financial Partners, will house 650,000 square feet of office space and an additional 28,000 square feet of retail space. The tower will be located at 201 Platform South, adjacent to Grand Hyatt Nashville and Amazon Nashville’s two office towers at Nashville Yards, and will become the office skyscraper with the highest occupiable floor in Nashville.

The tower’s trapezoidal shape will help reduce energy consumption, enhance views for occupants, and allow light to filter into all floors. Building amenities will include a dog-friendly campus and dedicated dog park, ample parking, office valet and executive car services, and an enhanced HVAC system that will circulate 30% more outside air than typical.
