NASHVILLE, TN—Commune Hotels & Resorts, along with MarketStreet Enterprises, the master developer of Music City’s The Gulch neighborhood, and AJ Capital Partners and The Berger Company, plan to open the 224-room Thompson Nashville here.
The Gulch is a mixed-use neighborhood with more than 50 restaurants, retail stores and entertainment venues. The Gulch development plan was launched 15 years ago by MarketStreet Enterprises.
Expected to open in summer 2016, the hotel will offer a signature ground floor restaurant and boutique retail space, as well as an indoor-outdoor rooftop.
Architectural design is being led by Nashville-based Hastings Architecture Associates, LLC. New York City-based Parts and Labor Design will create customized interiors. Site work for the project is anticipated to begin in early 2015.
“The Gulch is the perfect location for a Thompson Hotel—a brand that respects the unique character of its environment—as it sits within close proximity to Nashville’s premier destinations and will become another marquee amenity for the home-grown urban neighborhood,” stated Jay Turner, managing director, MarketStreet Enterprises. “With construction of Gulch Crossing—our new Class A office building—in full swing, this is an opportune time to introduce an exceptional hospitality component.”

In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
