Gresham, Smith and Partners designs Nissan's new North American Headquarters 

Construction for the Nissan Americas facility, which represents a capital investment in excess of $100 million, began in June 2006. Occupancy is planned for mid-2008. The building is located about 20 miles south of downtown Nashville. Currently at the construction site in Franklin, the building pad has been completed. The drilled pier foundations for the office facility and adjacent garage have been completed. Preparation of the site roads and installation of underground utilities have begun. Two of the building’s four elevator towers have been completed. Erection of the first steel has begun; during construction, about 3,400 tons of structural steel will be used. The steel will be erected in four sequences, beginning at the north end of the building. In addition to the structural steel, 575 tons of reinforcing steel will be used, and 23,000 cubic yards of concrete will be placed. Over the course of the project, 113,000 cubic yards of earth will be moved at the 50-acre site. Nissan Americas will comprise 10 office floors and an underground level with two salons for special reviews of new models or prototype vehicles. The building will reach a height of approximately 150 feet and will encompass a total floor space of 460,000 square feet. An adjacent parking garage will accommodate 1,135 vehicles, and a 10,000-square-foot employee fitness center is being constructed on the western side of the parking garage structure.
