“Bass, Berry & Sims is one of the preeminent law firms in the Southeast and nationally, and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about their decision to relocate their headquarters to Nashville Yards,” said Cary Mack, managing partner of Southwest Value Partners. “In our interactions, Bass, Berry & Sims was intently focused on building their presence in an exceptional space and community for the benefit of their clients and their people. We’ve worked hard to elevate our work/live/enjoy design and master plan to ensure we can exceed their expectations and help them achieve their strategic goals.”

Bass, Berry & Sims was represented in the transaction by Bert Mathews and Shane Douglas of Colliers International. “Partnering with one of Nashville’s most iconic firms to find their ideal new home has been an extraordinary honor. The Nashville Yards and the Southwest Value Partners team offered the perfect fit for Bass with shared values for unparalleled excellence in all things and a passion for the future of Nashville,” said Janet Miller, market leader & CEO of Colliers International.

The multi-tenant office tower, which will serve as the new headquarters of Pinnacle Financial Partners, will house 650,000 square feet of office space and an additional 28,000 square feet of retail space. The tower will be located at 201 Platform South, adjacent to Grand Hyatt Nashville and Amazon Nashville’s two office towers at Nashville Yards, and will become the office skyscraper with the highest occupiable floor in Nashville.

The tower’s trapezoidal shape will help reduce energy consumption, enhance views for occupants, and allow light to filter into all floors. Building amenities will include a dog-friendly campus and dedicated dog park, ample parking, office valet and executive car services, and an enhanced HVAC system that will circulate 30% more outside air than typical.
