Phelps Portman Nashville, LLC Selected to Develop, Design and Build 1,000-room Convention Center Headquarters Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. and ATLANTA, June 19 /PRNewswire/ – The Nashville Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) announced that it has selected Phelps Portman Nashville, LLC to develop, design and construct a 1,000-room hotel adjacent to the planned new Music City Center in downtown Nashville. Plans call for the hotel to feature approximately 100,000 square feet of meeting space and ballrooms, as well as retail outlets and restaurants.
 
During construction, the hotel will employ 750 – 800 workers at the height of construction and approximately 725 full-time employees when the hotel opens. The hotel is an integral part of the proposed downtown convention center project.
 
Phelps Portman is composed of Phelps Development, a subsidiary of Hensel Phelps Construction Company, a leading construction company, and Portman Holdings, a leading international developer of some of the world’s most iconic real estate. They will be responsible for overseeing the project to completion, including design, construction, purchasing and installation of all furnishings and equipment and start up of the hotel in coordination with the hotel operator.
 
“We reviewed 10 proposals and examined qualifications in detail,” said Phil Ryan, MDHA Executive Director. “A hotel of this scale requires special expertise to bring to fruition. The Phelps Portman group has been involved with the development of 10 hotels with 1,000 or more rooms, including the 1,190-room Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel, which recently opened on time and on budget to rave reviews. The Phelps Portman team has completed more than 30 LEED certified projects and this hotel also will be highly energy efficient.”
 
Selection of the development, design and construction team represents the latest major step in moving the convention center complex project forward. “Design and development currently are underway for the convention center building, and the selection of this team will now get the hotel under way,” Ryan said. “This headquarters hotel is integral to the success of the convention center. Our goal is to open the hotel in the fall of 2012.”
 
The Phelps Portman team will commence conceptual design of the hotel working in close cooperation with MDHA. Steps to follow include financing, construction and outfitting and start-up of the hotel.

    It's really absurd that that Metro isn't finding a way to reach agreement with Tower to secure the preferred hotel site. Regardless of when they finally start to build they need to know where it will go ASAP. Not nailing this down now does a few really bad things. First, the MCC project is required to spend lots of design $$'s figuring out the 3 other options where a hotel could go. This significant cost would be better spent on bridging the $ gap between Metro and Tower. Second, they have now passed or are rapidly approaching the point where they must commit to a final MCC design without knowing with certainty where the hotel will be. This is effectively cutting the design baby in half (or thirds). By leaving all options (hotel location) on the table for down the road they'll almost certainly incur inefficiency and loss of functionality forever in the final design. And given the value of the MCC the monetary costs associated with loss of function will be many multiples of the dispute over value they're having with Tower over the land price. Maybe this is what happens when you install a committee with no development experience to oversee the outcome. I hope I'm wrong.

    I agree with you Falcon. Some of the local folks who may or may not be on the MCC committee appear to have a beef with the Marks leadership, but I don’t see a good reason to continue this adversarial approach. The second best location for this hotel is the Baptist surface lot on the north side of the MCC, but it seems as though the church has absolutely no intension of giving up its parking lot at any price. This leaves us back on Tower’s site. Perhaps the Marks family could extend a public olive branch even though it’s not their turn to do so? They’ve been very quiet lately. The other question is: why don’t they simply develop a hotel themselves?

    I think its good if this 1,000-room hotel will make the reservation and stay to a cheap and affordable price at their first launch opening so that many people can try the new hotel. As soon as the hotel earn and progress more, its time for the management to increase the fee or they may do so is to increase the fee if there is a special holiday. In that way I guess it will boom its hotel business.

    That development will be a great opportunity for the tourism aspect to be boost because there will be a another hotel that can accommodate thousands of guest at the same time. The best thing to do then is that the owner must train well those who works in that hotel so that they can do a good services for a numerous number of guest so that they will keep on back and forth on that hotel.
