The Gulch

For over 15 years, members of the Smith Gee Studio team have worked on The Gulch, a $1B redevelopment project in downtown Nashville, overseeing the ongoing master planning efforts and advising the developers on urban design and neighborhood development. The Gulch has transformed from a brownfield industrial area into Nashville’s premier urban neighborhood with over 1,800 new residential units; restaurants and cafes; a local, organic grocery; and Tennessee’s first Urban Outfitters. As part of the USGBC’s LEED ND Pilot Program, we oversaw the certification of The Gulch, which was awarded Silver Certification and was the first LEED ND project in the South.
