Meet your East Bank overhaul contest winners

A panel of judges convened by the Nashville Civic Design Center has chosen conceptual drawings by Michael Albert and Victor Perez Amado as the winner of its East Bank visioning competition. Albert and Amado emphasized a relatively simple design for much of the 75 acres south of LP Field, which they labeled The Bend. Their concept places commercial development on the northern third of the property and centers the sports-oriented development closer to the river on an 8,000-seat circular arena, an amphitheater and a boathouse.
