NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SG Blocks (OTCQB:SGBX), a premier innovator and designer of container-based structures, today announced that in just three months, the firm has completed shipment of all 21 units for oneC1TY, a new development in Nashville, Tennessee.
oneC1TY is a multi-building, mindful living community that caters to the healthcare, life sciences and technology sectors of the global economy – all of which are growing dramatically. Its purpose is to create a space for those industries to connect with higher education, research and development and other related disciplines in a collaborative, interactive community near the center of Nashville's urban core.
The structures built by SG Blocks, C1TY BLOX, have all been shipped, erected and turned over to oneC1TY's master developer, Cambridge Holdings, Inc. for completion. C1TY BLOX will house commercial properties including retail stores, restaurants and other businesses.
"Seeing the project come to fruition before my eyes in my own backyard has been monumental," stated Stevan Armstrong, President and Chief Operating Officer of SG Blocks. "C1TY BLOX will soon be enjoyed by both locals and those traveling through Nashville and we are thrilled that our sustainable process has helped to transform what was once an underutilized location into a lively retail and event village in such a short amount of time."
C1TY BLOX will remain in place for approximately five years, until oneC1TY's permanent buildings are completed.
