Same-day delivery of an office tower is impossible, even for Amazon. But when you watch them work, it can feel as if construction workers in downtown Nashville are achieving something close to that for the online giant.
This month, the Nashville Business Journal had the chance to tour construction of the Nashville Yards mixed-use development. At one end, on Broadway, a Grand Hyatt hotel recently reached its highest point. The Business Journal returned to the site to look at the other end, on Church Street — where the first of two towers for Amazon is underway. When it opens in 2021, it will hold the first waves of Amazon’s promised 5,000 office jobs — the largest jobs announcement in state history.
