Arquitectonica inspired by Cumberland River for JW Marriott Nashville

Featuring a distinctive elliptical shape, the 33-story property will be Nashville’s newest luxury hotel.

Miami, Florida-based Turnberry Associates unveiled plans for the new JW Marriott opening in downtown Nashville next year. Featuring a distinctive elliptical shape conceptualized by architecture firm Arquitectonica, the 33-story property will be Nashville’s newest luxury hotel.

The hotel will be 386-feet-tall with 533 rooms, offering views from one of the highest elevations in the city. It will also be located within a two-mile radius of Nashville’s landmarks, including the Music City Center, The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Schermerhorn Symphony Center and The Ryman Auditorium.

Arquitectonica’s design of the JW Marriott Nashville draws inspiration from the nearby Cumberland River. With a varied and curved façade, standout design elements will include an undulating glass frontage that will incorporate sculpture, fountains and art, as well as a covered terrace on the 33rd floor with outdoor space and views of the southern capital city. The 33rd floor will also have Nashville’s first Bourbon Steak, a spa with a lap pool, salon and fitness center.
