DDA, Gobbell Hays Partners combine for $15.5M Union Station redevelopment

The landmark hotel combines the property’s historic architecture with contemporary Nashville influences.

Sage Hospitality completed the $15.5 million Union Station redevelopment project. Acquired by Pebblebrook Trust in 2014, the hotel was completely transformed to pay tribute to the city of Nashville.

Led by Dawson Design Associates, with Nashville-based Gobbell Hays Partners serving as project architect, Union Station’s newly imagined spaces pay homage to the property’s history by weaving the building’s architecture with contemporary details. The property now has modern seating, original commissioned art inspired by Nashville’s music scene, and preserved barrel-vaulted stained glass ceiling. In the lobby, there are also large-scale steel sculptures made from re-purposed and recycled materials, as well as three 10-foot-tall, custom chandeliers.

Each of the hotel’s 125 guestrooms and suites were refurbished with walnut feature walls, cowhide headboards, custom iron and wire chandeliers, leather accents and contemporary amenities.
