Congress Group and AECOM Capital to Develop Four Seasons Hotel and Residences in Downtown Nashville, Tennessee

Canada, Toronto, Ontario. April 16, 2019

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world's leading luxury hospitality company; Congress Group, a Boston-based real estate investment and development firm; and AECOM Capital, the investment arm of AECOM, today announce that a Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences will be coming to downtown Nashville. A groundbreaking for the development, which will be the first Four Seasons in Tennessee, is expected in April 2019.

"This will be one of the most iconic high-rise buildings in the state of Tennessee," said Dean Stratouly, president of Congress Group. "Delivered as LEED Gold and standing 542 feet tall (165 metres), it will be one of the state's greenest and tallest residential buildings. We'd like to thank the many public and private partners that have aided us in moving forward this generational vision, which will redefine the skyline and what is possible in Nashville."

"We're proud to bring Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences to Nashville," said Timothy D. Haskin, senior managing director of AECOM Capital. "City officials and the community have made Nashville a top place to live and visit, as well as a leading corporate destination for world class companies. Our project is a celebration of Nashville's exciting momentum and its long-term staying power."

"Long recognised for its popular music and entertainment offerings, Nashville is also home to one of the most vibrant culinary and arts scenes in the United States. Together with our partners at Congress Group and AECOM Capital, we are creating a world-class property, in one of the best locations in the city," says Bart Carnahan, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development and Portfolio Management, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. "We look forward to welcoming guests and residents to experience this dynamic city with Four Seasons."

The development continues the momentum and growth of the SoBro area of Nashville, affirming its emergence as one of the most dynamic urban areas in the city. Sparked by the arrival of major businesses and corporate headquarters, the new Hotel and Private Residences will be located along the Cumberland River, within a block of fresh and exciting culinary and nightlife experiences on Broadway, West Riverfront Park, Nissan Stadium, and the award-winning Ascend Amphitheater. This prime location will make the project the ideal spot for visitors and residents to experience the best of Nashville.

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Nashville will include a five-star, full service luxury hotel with 236 keys, a world-class spa and an array of fitness amenities. In addition, the building will offer for sale luxury residences to be managed by Four Seasons. Compass has been engaged by the developer exclusively to handle the sales and marketing of the private residences.

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
