US: Management and development company Hotel Equities and Tapestry Collection by Hilton have revealed plans to transform Nashville’s United Artists Tower into a 184-room hotel

The property, owned by Sai Ram 009 LLC, is located at 50 Music Square West in the heart of Nashville's famed Music Row in close proximity to the offices of music companies BMI, ASCAP, SESAC, CMA and Curb Records.

The building was originally constructed in 1974 by two members of Elvis Presley's backup band, The Jordanaires, and served as office and recording studio space for decades. At nine-storeys tall, it remains the tallest building on Music Row. Transformation of the 56,700 square foot building is scheduled to begin by the end of this year.

The new Tapestry Collection hotel will form part of Hotel Equities' full-service and resort division of hotels.

"We are proud to partner with this ownership group and Hilton," said Joe Reardon, VP of business development for Hotel Equities. "During initial conversations about the project, we were impressed with the passion and enthusiasm the owners displayed in regard to preserving the unique and important history of the building. We felt aligned with them right away and share in their excitement to bring the new hotel to Music Row."

Jenna Hackett, global head of Tapestry Collection by Hilton, said: "We are excited to partner with Hotel Equities to revitalise a building with such a storied past into a vibrant hotel that will be an ideal addition to the growing Tapestry Collection portfolio. The original style and offerings of this forthcoming hotel will truly encapsulate the spirit of the city and will be one of the first Tapestry Collection properties in the great city of Nashville."

The hotel is scheduled to open its doors to guests in 2020.
