Long-time client Ryman Hospitality partners has tapped R.C. Mathews Contractor to build out 10,000 square feet of space to yield 600 seats of private event space. Teamed with Centric Architecture, the future space at 114 Second Avenue North will be connected to the Wildhorse Saloon and historic features of the building will be retained. Additionally, there will be no disruption of daily operations of the Wildhorse Saloon while construction is underway. Colin Reed, chairman and chief executive officer of Ryman Hospitality Properties said this about the project:
"114 Second Avenue is a magnificent historic building that we intend to transform into high-quality event space that honors the industrial features and previous uses of the structure. For 25 years, the Wildhorse Saloon has been the premier downtown destination for entertaining large groups. Connecting this adjacent building to our existing facilities will allow us to accommodate the additional demand we are seeing, particularly from group customers, for unique private event space downtown."
