Window City Installs Custom-Designed Windows at Vanderbilt University

Window City installed over 350 custom historical steel replica windows for the recently completed renovation of the Sony Music Entertainment building in Nashville, Tennessee.

Nashville, Tenn. – 21 Jan 2021 – Window City installed over 350 custom historical steel replica windows for the recently completed renovation of the Sony Music Entertainment building in Nashville, Tennessee.

The 80,000 square foot Renaissance Revival-style building was constructed in 1916 and was added to the
National Register of Historic Places in 1985. Once home to the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged, the building was converted into office space in 1998 for BMG Music Publishing (acquired by Sony in 2008). Located across the street from the Vanderbilt campus, the building is used for academic and administrative functions by the university.

Window City worked with Universal Window and Door to custom manufacture the replacement windows. All windows were designed to include features sustaining the authentic, historical-looking characteristics in order to maintain the aesthetic and curb appeal of the original architecture. The installed windows have an arched
exterior while the interior displays a rectangular design.

Mike Mastroberti, founder and president of Window City stated,

“Window City is honored to be part of this rehabilitation project that is helping to re-invigorate the building, and to provide Vanderbilt University with updated and safer windows.”

Each new window is energy-efficient for maximum savings on yearly energy costs. The property will now save around 15% a year on energy bills and won’t have to worry about replacement for many years to come. Window City is proud to have helped maintain the historical look of the building while enhancing its efficiency all at once.
