NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – New details have been released on an updated master plan for “Nashville Yards” – one of Nashville’s largest and most transformative projects.
Stunning new renderings outline the future of the sprawling mixed-use neighborhood, a development according to Freddie O’Connell that benefits the whole city.
“I think it’s a pretty exciting plan,” O’Connell said.
Nashville Yards officials recently filed documents with Metro outlining new plans for several mixed-use projects, all significant additions to the city’s skyline.
The proposed buildings are located at 1001 Church Street and 901 Church Street as part of the 15+ acre development.

The project is comprised of approximately 1,590,725 square feet of combined office, retail and restaurant space and approximately 849,448 square feet of garage parking, totaling approximately 2,440,173 square feet of construction.

Another proposal surrounds plot 09 with residential towers of 34 and 35 floors consisting of 696 units,
meeting rooms, food and beverage outlets, retail spaces, a fitness center, a level three swimming pool and associated areas at the back of the house.

Between the main buildings of the new plot is a proposed pedestrian-oriented “Paseo” lined with dining options and outdoor seating. It is also proposed seven acres of open green space, a layered pedestrian environment, with an elevated roadway, dubbed “Platform South” or Upper 10th Avenue North.
“At the end of the day, it’s safer, it’s healthier, it supports the kind of things we want to see in the urban core where people can really live work play in close geography,” O said. ‘Connel. “I think the overall quality of development is really, really strong.”
