Chicago-based Convexity Properties (Convexity), has started the construction of 5 City Blvd, a 15-story, 300,000 SF Class A office tower within Nashville’s ONEC1TY mixed-use district. The start of construction is significant as it shows long-term belief in Nashville’s office market, according to the release. It is also the first Nashville project for the national developer. The project is located at 5 City Boulevard.
“We’re thrilled to begin work on 5 City Blvd, a building we’re proud to enter the Nashville market with. 5 City Blvd will offer an unmatched combination of high-end architecture and top-of-market technology within a health and wellness focused master development all at an ideal location for the future of Nashville’s workforce. It is the right destination for forward thinking businesses looking to relocate to or within Nashville.”
— Jessica Minton, Senior Vice President with Convexity
Convexity is reinforcing its commitment to sustainability by seeking LEED, WIRED Score and WELL certifications for the building. This underscores the walkability as well as the health and wellness focus of the ONEC1TY mixed-use district. Some of the building’s innovative technology design features include dedicated fiber optics, destination dispatch elevator systems, state of the art parking automation including EV charging stations and keyless entry solutions. The project also offers a mix of shared and private terraces with views of Downtown & Midtown Nashville.
- Level 15 – 800 SF Private Terrace
- Level 13 – 650 SF Private Terrace
- Level 9 – 1,800 SF Private Terrace
- Level 2 – 2,800 SF Shared Terrace
5 City Blvd will include approximately 17,000 square feet of highly visible ground floor retail which will serve as an amenity to the building. Target retail tenants will include those offering goods and services that will directly benefit those working in the building and residents living and working nearby.

As a subsidiary of DRW, Convexity is able to self-fund much of their work, granting them even greater control over every stage in a project’s life cycle. Minton further notes, “For each of our projects we start from scratch to create a brand-new vision that suits the location and end user. We’re very excited to deliver a building that is not only technologically advanced, but also aesthetically pleasing. The grand curvatures and bronze accents on the exterior of the building will help create a very distinctive and optimal corporate destination. We have a vested interest in our work and fully believe in delivering an optimal outcome.
