Rooftop Reception (open to everyone)

Price: free to attend

Sponsored by Gresham, Smith and Partners

Join us for a free rooftop reception on the 12th floor balcony, overlooking the Cumberland River.  Lead architect and interior designer, Gresham, Smith and Partners  recently completed this 390,000-square-foot office tower in downtown Nashville. At 222 Second Avenue South, the 25-floor structure sits across First Avenue from the new West Riverfront Park and Ascend Amphitheater. It is the newest addition to Nashville’s booming commercial-real estate portfolio, transforming the city’s skyline and the SoBro neighborhood.
The mixed-use development is anchored by a 25,000-square-feet of ground-level retail and restaurant space, and offers 361,000-square-feet of Class-A office space atop a 10-story, 1,100-space parking garage. An outdoor terrace, conference center and fitness center are among some of the amenities available for use by all tenants. The project has achieved LEED Silver Pre-Certification, and GS&P worked closely with stakeholders to maximize active ground-floor uses and design a generous, pedestrian-friendly streetscape, with a goal of creating the most vibrant retail block in the SoBro district.
This venue is located at 222 Second Avenue South, and is just 7 short blocks (.5 miles) away from the JW Marriott.

The EWRI Low Impact Development Conference is excited to hold the key social at the City Winery Nashville, which is just a few short blocks from the JW Marriott. The City Winery takes great pride in sourcing their grapes from some of the finest vineyards in the world – Cabernet Sauvignon from Bettinelli in Napa, California to Pinot Noir from Hyland Vineyards in Willamette Valley, Oregon or even Malbec from the esteemed Catena Vineyards in Agrelo, Mendoza Argentina. The facility is designed to integrate the wine-making process with consumption and enjoyment of wine.

While you are tasting some of Nashville's finest wines, enjoy the country music of Brassfield Alley. Brothers Bradley and Chadley Brassfield form Brassfield Alley, alongside Aly Cutter. Their music has a relaxed, bluesy feel and a catchy drum hook that draws you in and leaves you tapping your feet along, so don't forget to pack your cowboy boots!
