Nashville unveils proposed East Bank redevelopment

Nashville East Bank

The Metro Nashville Planning Department and Mayor John Cooper’s Office have released a proposal for the redevelopment of 350 acres of land on the east bank of the Cumberland River in East Nashville. Working with consultants Perkins Eastmen as well as the Nashville Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency, and others, the Imagine East Bank Study proposed the largest redevelopment in Nashville’s history with a focus on investment in parks and greenways, a pier and boat dock, and transportation connecting the East Bank to both Titans Stadium and the new Oracle development on the East Bank’s north side. Historically an industrial site in the city, the urban renewal project proposes rezoning and infrastructure improvements that would help develop a more mixed-used development focused on residential and retail-commercial property.
