Nashville has become one of the United States’ most dynamic economies, driving growth back into its core neighborhoods. In 2010, the city also showcased its resilience by bouncing back from a severe flood that impacted many parts of the downtown. The city’s growth and post-flood rebuilding gave the City an opportunity to craft a downtown plan with a multi-disciplinary team (1) led by Urban Design Associates. The outcome is envisioned to be a better version of what the city is today: more vibrant, connected, green, dense, attractive, fun, quirky, pedestrian-friendly, and mixed-use. It will be a place that is welcoming to both citizens and visitors. It will be authentically Nashville.
