Located along Fifth Avenue, just a few blocks from the historic Ryman Auditorium and numerous other music and cultural venues, the Music City Center, opened in May 2013, will bring new life to the South of Broadway (SOBRO) neighborhood of Nashville.
The design team of tvsdesign/Tuck-Hinton Architects/Moody Nolan, Inc. Architects studied the underutilized area of SOBRO and gave careful consideration to the placement of the facility’s many functional elements that will affect the surrounding area. The design turns a positive face to surrounding neighborhoods by concealing service areas and placing potential commercial or cultural venues with lively public concourses along main pedestrian and vehicular corridors. The planned extension of Korean Veterans Boulevard has also taken place to enhance cross-city connectivity along KVB.
The plan for the Music City Center is designed to serve as a catalyst for new business by respecting the surrounding neighborhood and turning a welcoming face to the community. It strives to connect the rich music history of Nashville to a new home for expositions, meetings and tourism.
