Future Four Seasons Hotel Development

Asbestos Services | Demolition Services

The Congress Group/AECOM selected EAI for the structural demolition of the former Market Street Apartments along the Cumberland River between 1stand 2ndAvenue South in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.  The work was completed in preparation for the new development of the Five Star Four Seasons Hotel and Residential Tower – a 40-story structure.

The building demolished was a turn-of-the-century structure in select sections – dating back to the late 1890’s.

EAI’s Scope of Work included performing the hazardous materials abatement, utility disconnects, and structural demolition. The work was performed in a highly congested area of downtown Nashville and during record breaking events like the 2019 NFL Draft and the CMA Music Fest.
