Potential Changes to Downtown Nashville

Nashville - West BankIn case you missed the news on Thursday, it appears something will finally happen to the old thermal transfer plant that is an eye-sore in downtown.

The Tennessean reports:

Anchoring the project is the conver­sion of the long-dormant, 12-acre ther­mal transfer plant site on the west bank into public green space. It would feature an outdoor amphitheater for the sym­phony and other events. Before work begins, groundbreaking is set this fall for a 4.5-acre riverfront lawn and land­ing area on the east side to connect to the newly opened Cumberland Park. 

It’s been amazing to see the transformation of downtown Nashville the last 15-20 years.   The last three mayors of Nashville have had foresight and resolve to create a truly great downtown.   As someone who lives in Hendersonville and doesn’t pay Davidson county taxes, I feel somewhat inappropriate to celebrate something I don’t contribute to.  However, all the attractions downtown has taken my dollars into Nashville for the great city experiences.
