So it appears the event will be held in an outdoor facility such as the 6,000+ seat Ascend Amphitheater, the Nissan Stadium where the Titans play or possibly in the street on lower Broadway which is occassionally shut down for large events such as they NHL All Star game. It will definitely be something different.

Nashville knows how to party....


I suspect it'll be either at Nissan or in a combination of Bridgestone and the MCC. They can schedule the Predators to be on a road swing during that period if their schedule isn't already set. The primary concern will be rain if it's outdoors.

The nearly complete JW Marriott, as expected, has turned out to be one of the City's outstanding high rises for it's location and architecture.



It stretches the skyline west to connect with the Gulch and Midtown (far left).

Nashville has presented it's final master plan for the Fairgrounds property on which the new MLS (Soccer) Stadium is proposed to be built. The process involved meetings with neighborhood groups and invited input.



The recommendation....



My depiction of the proposal....



It would be a huge improvement over the current facilities...



Some bullet points:
  • There is a small group of opponents who do not want changes to be made to the site. The general consensus is that the two council members (out of 40) who are proposing a new site will not impact the progress of the development at the Fairgrounds.
  • A council vote will be required (27 of 40 votes needed) to begin at some point in the near future to start demolition of the current facilities. With passage of the original proposal by an even larger margin, it would be surprising to see any rejection of the development succeed. There would possibly be large liabilities regarding some or all reimbursement for franchise fees supposedly.
  • No final renderings are available, yet.

A new rendering of the 5th + Broad project which is just absolutely cool!!!



The tall building on the left is a 34 story apartment building and the tall on the right is a 26 story office building which will be the home of Alliance Bernstein.

At the bottom center is a major high end retail and multiple food service development with the famous and historic Ryman Auditorium at the lower right.
It is well under construction with three cranes up and copious amounts of concrete being poured.

Enjoy!

EDIT: Alliance Bernstein is in negotiations with the 5th + Broadway group for space in the building. A lease has not been signed yet.

Cool

Second Avenue Partners are seeking approvals from the City for design modifications and expect to start construction on the '151 1st Avenue' project in SoBro in early 2019.

The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has updated information on the proposed 40 story condo and 16 story hotel at 151 1st Avenue South in Nashville's SoBro district. A recent report in the Nashville Post seemed to confirm the information on the website.
The pertinent facts as presented...



Other notes;
  • The hotel brand has not been named yet
  • There will be a connection to the Siegenthaler Pedestrian Bridge.
  • A small, 10+/- space parking lot between the development and the bridge was not acquired.
  • The tower will be the second tallest in Nashville when complete.

Another major development which does not get the attention it deserves as it primarily is a smaller part the larger 5th + Broadway is the National Museum of African American Music (NMAAM). It will be located directly across from the historic Ryman Auditorium when it opens in 2019.


From it's website....

Quote:
The National Museum of African American Music is set to open its doors in 2019. It will be the only museum dedicated to preserving the legacy and celebrating the accomplishments of the many music genres created, influenced, or inspired by African Americans. Being built in Nashville, the Museum will share the story of the American Soundtrack, integrating history and interactive technology to bring the musical heroes of the past into the present.
......
The Museum is the place that educates, preserves, and celebrates the rich influence Black people have had on America’s music. The story that will unfold within it walls is the soundtrack of the American story. It is a unique narrative – one that has never been told before – which shares how a distinct group of people used their artistry to connect more than 50 genres, ranging from folk to hip-hop to blues to country.


They love to promote Jimi Hendrix because of his Nashville connections.
