The BowTruss Building in Nashville, TN is a former warehouse that was converted into creative office space. The project broke ground in August of 2012 and the first tenant, Stratasan, moved into their 4,500 SF space in February, 2013. Features like open architecture, exposed metal bowtruss beams, a vaulted wooden ceiling and spacious windows and skylights helped the building win an Excellence in Development Award from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) in 2015. Holladay Construction also completed the Tenant Improvement projects for the building’s other tenants: Redpepper, an ad agency that occupies 18,000 SF; Deavor Creative Co-Working, a 5,700 SF project offering a new concept in creative workspaces with co-working desks and workspaces in a creative, open atmosphere as well as shared spaces like meeting rooms, board rooms and a multipurpose room for events and learning opportunities; and Concept Technology, an IT services provider, whose 8,700 SF space features a creative, non-traditional design.
