Gresham Smith & Smith will be the 6th Corporate Partner for Owen's Accelerator Program

The 6th Corporate Partner firm announced for the 2008 Summer Business Institute at Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of Management is Gresham Smith & Partners. We're delighted to have this outstanding company a part of Accelerator 2008. Gresham Smith is returning for a 2nd year – their Accelerator project last year was one of the top ranked among the student participants.
This year’s Mission: Gresham Smith will challenge Accelerator participants to prepare a master redevelopment plan for a property located at the site of Nashville’s old Thermal Plant. The 12-acre site was originally slated to be the new baseball stadium site, but that plan was unable to get funding. Given it’s proximity to the new pedestrian bridge and the downtown area, the site has significant potential to be a part of a growing downtown environment and has prompted area developers to evaluate the site.
