Voorhees & Antiques

VALUE-ADD / OPPORTUNISTIC
Nashville, TN
85,000 SF

The Voorhees and Antiques buildings are the components of the adaptive reuse of two iconic historic buildings in Nashville’s South Gulch.  The Voorhees building has gone through multiple iterations in its past life, once housing a John Deere showroom and more recently serving as home to the Bill Voorhees Company, an HVAC company from which its name and iconic skyline signage originated.  Antiques, a two-story, 26,000 SF historic structure with a beautiful bow truss roof on its second floor, has been home to GP Rose & Co., a feed supplier in the early 20th century, and more recently the Downtown Antique Mall.  Since acquiring the asset in late 2019, SomeraRoad has undertaken an expansive rehabilitation of the two existing buildings, transforming both structures to include space for high-caliber retail tenants in the ground floor spaces across a collective 25,000 SF and high-quality creative office space across 60,000 SF.  Alongside CORE Construction, SomeraRoad’s Nashville-based team has led the ongoing construction and lease-up of the re-imagined buildings with upgrades which include new storefront glass windows, full building system upgrades, interior white-boxing and refurbishing of the existing masonry.  Additionally, the team is in the process of adding a glass-and-steel 5th floor addition to the Voorhees Building, which will serve as an unrivaled amenity for office users with unprecedented views of the Nashville skyline. Construction and adaptive re-use is still ongoing.
