Canyon Partners Provides 4.6 Million Senior Loan for Recapitalization of Nashville Office Tower

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC (“Canyon”) and J.P. Morgan today announced they have co-originated a $174.6 million senior construction loan to a joint venture between GBT Realty Corporation and Koch Real Estate Investments for the recapitalization of One22One, a recently completed trophy office tower in Nashville, Tennessee.

One22One is a Class A, 24-story office building with 373,232 square feet of office space, 16,938 square feet of retail space, and 13 stories of parking totaling 930 spaces. The state-of-the-art tower has a wide range of amenities, including a conference center, outdoor terrace overlooking Downtown Nashville, tenant lounge, port cochere, and fitness center. The property features various post-pandemic safety features, including individual HVAC systems on each floor to enhance quality air circulation and touchless technologies such as keyless access to tenant suites and elevators.

“As Nashville continues to climb the ranks in growth and business demand, there is increasing appetite for well-located, modern office space in the market,” said George Tomlin, President and CEO of GBT Realty Corporation. “We look forward working with Canyon Partners and J.P. Morgan on the recapitalization of One22One, positioning the property to take advantage of rising demand and provide the workspaces and amenities that today’s companies are seeking in a post-pandemic environment.”

“One22One demonstrates that new vintage state-of-the-art office continues to outperform and drive tenant and capital demand. We are pleased to have represented and advised GBT and Koch on this assignment and a special thank you to the Canyon and JPM teams on their ability to navigate a challenging capital markets environment,” said Managing Director Matt Stewart of JLL’s Capital Markets group.

Constructed in July 2022, the property is leased to major tenants, including Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, a national law firm, FirstBank, the third largest Tennessee-based bank which will also relocate its headquarters to One22One, and Slalom, a global management consulting company. Located in Nashville’s Gulch neighborhood, One22One is conveniently near Music Row, the epicenter of Nashville’s music industry scene, and Midtown, the home of Vanderbilt University. The property is adjacent to Interstate 40, providing easy accessibility for commuters.
