Sizing up the Fairgrounds' potential

The firms leading the discussions on the redevelopment of the Tennessee State Fairgrounds site on Monday presented some more specific ideas during a community meeting. The group (led by Nashville-based EDGE Planning, Landscape Architecture and Graphic Design) envisions for the area anywhere between 500 and 900 residential units, up to 200,000 square feet of neighborhood retail and between 750,000 and 1.5 million square feet of office space, as well as up to 100,000 square feet of space in institutional buildings. Here are some renderings from the firm's report, which should be available soon on this page.
