The Nashville Public Square is the award-winning result of an intensive renovation to the City of Nashville's Metro Courthouse complex, resulting in its 5 level subterranean parking garage and rooftop public plaza. Nashville Public Square won the 2007 Green Roofs for Healthy Cities Award of Excellence in the Intensive Institutional category.The open air greenroof captures fresh rainwater in a 57,000-gallon, below-grade tank - the rainwater is then filtered and recycled to irrigate the plants in the public park.
Over 43 different species of plants were used in the Nashville Public Square design, 81 percent of which are native to the Southeast region and 63 percent are native to Middle Tennessee. The project also features several historically significant components from the original site including reused granite steps, historical war monuments and commemorative plaques (Nashville Business Journal).
