MIAMI, Sept. 22, 2017 -- Virgin Hotels, the lifestyle hotel brand by Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson, marks a new milestone as Virgin Hotels breaks ground with The Buccini/Pollin Group and BPGS Construction on Virgin Hotels Nashville. The groundbreaking ceremony, held on location on Wednesday, September 20, marks Virgin Hotels' fourth property currently under construction, behind Virgin Hotels New York City, Virgin Hotels Dallas and Virgin Hotels New Orleans.

The hotel will feature 240 Chambers, including Grand Chamber Suites, and multiple dining and drinking outlets such as the brand's signature Commons Club, a rooftop and pool, and - fitting for Music City - a speakeasy.

"We are so excited to be bringing Virgin Hotels to the thriving city of Nashville," said Raul Leal, CEO of Virgin Hotels. "The spirit of this city is absolutely electric - from the music, to the cuisine, to the culture. We are fortunate to be a small part what makes Music City such a popular destination among travelers. We can't wait to welcome guests here." 

To commemorate the groundbreaking, Virgin Hotels, in conjunction with The Buccini/Pollin Group, hosted key members of each group as well as city officials in Nashville for an intimate groundbreaking ceremony. During the event, members of the Virgin Hotels development team took the first shovels to the ground at the future hotel site.
