A Facebook post today from Acme Feed & Seed states that the popular multi-level Broadway bar and restaurant is back in business following the weekend’s roof incident — at least that’s true of the bottom two levels. A statement from Tom Morales, owner of TomKats Hospitality, reiterated that none were injured in the partial collapse on Saturday, and that the building was evacuated promptly. He said the roof should hopefully reopen within a couple of weeks, pending assessments and repairs.
See the owner of TomKats Hospitality Tom Morales’ full statement about the incident below:
“”On Saturday afternoon, Acme Feed & Seed experienced a partial collapse of its rooftop deck, when a section of the deck separated from its support. No one was hurt in the incident and the building was evacuated immediately. A structural engineer has inspected the roof and has concluded there is no damage to the roof itself. Additionally, both the contractor involved in the design and construction (Crain and Tuck Hinton) have inspected the damage and are assessing what caused the failure.
Initial tweets by the fire inspector mis-characterized the situation as a roof collapse, which it was not. Both the Nashville Fire Department as well as the Department of Codes and Building Safety determined that no other floors were affected by the incident and have cleared Acme to reopen floors 1-3 tomorrow, Tuesday, October 16. We will start repairs on the deck as soon as possible, and anticipate being able to reopen the roof within a week or two, depending on the extent of the damage.”
