FirstService Residential-Georgia (formerly Community One Associates), a FirstService Residential Management Company, announced today it has finalized a management agreement with Viridian, a 31-story luxury high rise in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.

Under the agreement, which began December 1, Community One Associates will provide a full complement of services for Viridian, an award-winning residential development. Viridian is located in the heart of Nashville’s thriving business and entertainment district, a short walking distance to performing and visual arts venues, sports, dining and nightlife. Viridian, the city’s premier residential tower, is the creation of Novare Group and Giarratana Development.

“Our team will bring not only services and efficiency, but innovative ideas to maintain and elevate the Viridian brand,” says FSR-Georgia CEO Matthew Phillips. “A successful management partnership begins with understanding the needs and challenges of a property with the goal of preserving and enhancing the value of the entire community.”

Viridian Home Owners Association President Rob Turner led the charge to find a new management company for the building, “I was tired of the previous management company not achieving the most basic tasks and not following the directives of the Board of Directors. Through the RFP committee, Viridian sought the best management company for the best building in Nashville. After vetting numerous management companies east of the Mississippi, (FSR-Georgia) was clearly the answer!”


FirstService Residential-Georgia seeks to become the most highly regarded property management company in the markets it serves. It does this by offering maximum value to clients in areas including cost containment, consistent operating procedures and client communication.

HOA President Rob Turner echoed, “I was very concerned initially with the transition process and the commitments made to Viridian; the transition process was seamless and (FSR-Georgia) has consistently exceeded all expectations of the Board. (FirstService Residential-Georgia) is absolutely the best choice for the Viridian. We share common values and expectations; we have a partner to ensure that the Viridian remains the preeminent building in Nashville.”
