Talent agency UTA is moving its Nashville headquarters into a bigger space at 225 Polk Ave. to accommodate its growing business. Located near the Tennessee state capitol building, the new office sits inside the former Nashville Main Public Library, known as Carnegie Library, which operated from 1965 to 2001. UTA’s Nashville team plans to move in early 2020 following construction.
Since opening in 2012, UTA’s Nashville office has rapidly grown and has promoted 10 employees in the past two years alone with clients that include Toby Keith, Clint Black, Trace Adkins, Craig Morgan, Clay Walker, Blanco Brown, High Valley, Jimmie Allen and more.
“Nashville is a powerful creative hub, built on storytelling and compelling live entertainment,” UTA CEOJeremy Zimmer said in a release. “We are excited for our new space to serve as a great resource for the creative community and are committed to building our presence in Music City.”
“The new space features a contemporary aesthetic across three floors and includes an employee café lounge, a wellness room, outdoor terraces, and views of Nashville’s state capitol,” a release announcing the move explains. “The building will also include a state-of-the-art performance space. UTA will incorporate some library memorabilia into the design, including an old book drop on the parking level of the property.” Hastings Architecture are the architects on the project.
