The owner of downtown's Nashville City Center is pursuing more than $1.5 million in upgrades that will include a first-floor sound studio along with a food kiosk and improvements to the plaza outside of that office tower.
Alliance Partners HSP's plans for the roughly 500-square-foot music studio to be called the Jamnasium comes after Warner Music Group recently signed a lease to open a new financial shared service center in 30,000 square feet of space. That operation is expected to employ up to 175 people.
"They're very excited about the updates," Max Ryan, director of development and construction with Bryn Mawr, Penn.-based Alliance Partners HSP, said about Warner Music Group. "It's one of the reasons they found the building appealing. We feel like we're building cool space for smart tenants."
On Tuesday, the Metro Development and Housing Agency's design review committee deferred a decision on Alliance Partners HSP's request for concept approval pending submission of revised plans for signage, sidewalk width and the food kiosk.
