Fifth + Broadway
Approximately 250,000 pounds of explosives were used for excavation during the development phase—approximately the weight in July Fourth fireworks that Americans purchase annually.
15,408 tons of concrete and 3,875 tons of steel have been recycled from the demolition of the Convention Center. This total weight is equal to nearly two Eiffel Towers.

Nashville Public Library
Fifth + Broadway’s parking garage can hold 2,145 cars, which, if parked bumper to bumper, would stretch from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to the Nashville Zoo.
There are 1,600 stairs in Fifth + Broadway’s residential tower leading to 381 apartment units for rent.
If Fifth + Broadway’s three towers were stacked on top of each other, they would measure 894 feet high—approximately the height of 1.5 AT&T Buildings (aka Nashville’s Batman Buildings).
Our team has logged 3.2 million work hours to date.
7,000 workers made this project possible, and they included 105 prime subcontractors and 61 small, minority-owned, women-owned and veteran subcontractors. We’re tracking $74 million to be spent on diverse businesses throughout construction.
Workers and Hours
98,500 cubic yards of concrete was used for this project—equal to 29 Olympic Swimming Pools.
70,750 tons of material have been recycled from construction debris—approximately the weight of 353 blue whales.
During the construction of Fifth + Broadway, our team worked through the 2019 NFL draft and CMA Fest, which brought a combined 680,000 fans to Nashville.
