First Horizon National Corporation Corporate Headquarters Main Office Tower

Project Details



Memphis, TN


This 170,000 SF project renovates First Horizon’s Downtown Memphis Headquarters located in the iconic First Tennessee Tower at 165 Madison Ave. It represents the final phase of a multiphased project that provides a comprehensive design solution. The Operations Center project was completed in an earlier phase.

ANF Architects worked with First Horizon National Corporation to consolidate employees from three different buildings into two locations. The goal was to reduce real estate, improve functional layouts to increase collaboration and work flow while giving employees a modern, flexible work environment. 

ANF Architects collaborated with Gensler in a BIM/Cloud team approach during the early stages of design to fast-track these projects.
