Bright & Early: Getting Creative Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Yesterday the city rolled out the plans for the Music City Center, which is that new convention center we’re getting that everyone has been fighting about for a few years. It’ll be going in on 5th and Demonbreun right behind the Sommet Center and is somehow going to incorporate “the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee,” the Ryman, the Parthenon, curves of guitars, and instrument strings into its design (yeah, don’t ask us.) Preliminary models look pretty spiffy, though, and we’re pretty excited to see it come together. The project is set to cost $595M and pay itself off in 30 years.
