EOA enlisted to formulate new use for former state prison

Nashville-based EOA Architects is working with state officials to develop various plans to repurpose the former Tennessee State Prison site, which could include a museum within the 1898-built main building, built in 1898.

The state building commission approved an $800,000 expenditure last fall to study the property's redevelopment and retrofitting options.

Located off Centennial Boulevard in West Nashville, the main building is considered by many an architectural treasure. Several movies, including The Green Mile and The Last Castle, have filmed at the site since its closing in 1992.

Pierce Greenberg and nashvillecitypaper.com have the story here.

Tune Airport sees fuel sales dip 17.5%

The John C. Tune Airport saw March fuel sales decrease 17.5 percent compared to March 2012 figures, according to recently released Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority statistics.

A key cause for the dip involved the West Nashville facility losing a major client (actually, the owner of a jet) to another airport.

According to MNAA officials, the fluctuation is normal and can be attributed to various factors such as weather patterns and variations in flight schedules.

Opened in 1986, John C. Tune Airport has an employee payroll of $3.1 million. MNAA officials say the facility’s annual economic impact is $10.8 million.
