Nashville - Downtown - Part 2
 
Nashville is the 24th largest city in the United States by population (668,000) and is the largest city of the Nashville—Davidson–Murfreesboro–Columbia Combined Statistical Area (2,028,000) in Tennessee. It is the state's capital.

Downtown is a lively grid of development, contained on its Western side by railroad tracks and on its Eastern side by the Cumberland River. It features several historic streets of small commercial buildings, areas of grand civic buildings, and plenty of large-scale modern architecture peppered throughout with more growth in development. This thread will mostly concentrate on the more modern features.

Mid-century to Post-modern structures:

Thanks for the tour! We stayed at the Cambria downtown last Fall. Excellent hotel in a great location.

Thanks for posting that! I have good memories of my time in Nashville back around Christmas.

Here are some photos of Riverfront Park, on the edge of downtown:

One of the features of the park is the Ascend Amphitheater with its soaring stage roof:

Several areas of gardens are adjacent to the lawns:

The John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge can be seen rising above the park and crossing over to the opposite bank from Downtown, where the Nissan Stadium is located:

Gotta say the Sheraton always has the weirdest-looking building among in all downtowns.

That building was built originally as a Hyatt Regency in the early 1970s. That round portion at the top was a restaurant that turned a full revolution every hour.

I just looked at the hotel's website and it appears that they do not use the "crown" for regular restaurant dining. However they have a picture of it set up as an event or meeting space, so it still gets used presumably.

There hasn't been a restaurant there in more than 20 years. That was a gimmicky cool thing done in various cities back in the 1970s & 80s, much like the atrium lobby and the space-capsule glass elevators. Still used for events but quite sure it does NOT rotate anymore. There was a recent episode of Top Chef filmed there.

Here is an article from 2000 stating that the restaurant had closed but the space would be used for special events and holiday meals:

From the same news organization is this article from 2016 stating that the previous special event space had been shut down after being unsuccessful but that new owners were renovating it for special event use again:
