Nashville Attraction: One of the World's Greenest Buildings

The Bridge Building, erected in 1908, earned LEED Platinum status with one of the highest scores ever awarded, The Tennessean reported recently.

People attending this month's 29th Annual National VPPPA Conference will have the opportunity to enjoy Nashville's famous live music scene and BBQ. They also can visit one of the world's greenest buildings: The Bridge Building, which overlooks downtown Nashville from its location on the east bank of the Cumberland River. It earned 99 out of 110 possible points in the Platinum category of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED program, the council and The Tennessean's Joey Garrison recently reported.

His July 10 article said only three other buildings in the world had posted a higher score.

The building dates to 1908, when it was constructed to house the offices of the Nashville Bridge Company, also known as NABRICO. It was one of just a few industrial facilities on the east bank left standing when many were demolished in the mid-1990s to make room for Nashville's new NFL stadium.

The building was restored at a cost of $7 million in 2011 as part of the Riverfront Redevelopment initiative, Garrison reported. His report says it now houses event space and offices for the Metro Parks Department, the Southern Environmental Law Center, and the Cumberland River Compact. Hastings Architects Associates, LLC managed the renovation.
