The Nashville ULI chapter recently honored 1700 Midtown with an “Excellence in Development” award.

The State Street and 17th Avenue apartment building was developed by Bristol Development Group. We designed the architecture for the 170-unit, two four-story buildings. Project partners also included Hodgson & Douglas, Doster Construction Company, Barge Cauthen & Associates Inc., Smith Seckman Reid Inc., Sterling Engineering and Anderson Design Studio.

The ULI panel of judges described the 1700 Midtown project as setting “the design trend of future reinvestment in the area.”

Other honored projects were 12th and Paris, Franklin Police headquarters, Hotel Indigo, Piedmont Natural Gas operations center, the Sawtooth Building, Terrazzo and Westhaven.

ULI judged projects based on their design, land use, contribution to and reflection of the neighborhood, their use of a public/private partnership, environmental sensitivity and financial viability.

Judges for the awards were Richard Rosan, president of Urban Land Institute; William Gilchrist, director of place-based planning for the City of New Orleans; and Richard Ward, vice president of Zimmer Real Estate Services.
