In 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.
