The Long Awaited Return of Watermark to Nashville Comes to a Screeching Halt

Plans at Bridgestone Tower for Watermark are over

The old Watermark space, which now houses 404 Kitchen

Following multiple rumors, and today confirmed by the Nashville Post, the long awaited return of the Gulch dining destination of yesteryear Watermark has come to a screeching halt.

For nearly three years now, the plan was for Watermark to find a new home in SoBro’s Bridgestone Tower (circa 2017, originally), but the Post now reports that Highwoods Properties, who co-developed the site and owns the tower, confirmed the news that Watermark will indeed not be a tenant of the skyscraper.

Hughes Brown first opened Watermark in 2005 with his father, Jerry, with the restaurant garnering near-instant national attention for the city. After a number of chef shuffles, Watermark closed in 2016, with the promise to return to the Bridgestone Tower spot.

Brown told the Post that they are not actively seeking a new location for the Gulch pioneer restaurant. Stay tuned as Eater has reached out to see what might replace Watermark in the SoBro skyscraper.
