DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT CENTER: Where Seeing Is Believing

Wouldn't it be great to have one place you could go to find out about everything going on in downtown Nashville - new residential development, public and private investments, demographics? Now there is such a place - the Downtown Development Center, in Suite G-150, One Nashville Place (at the corner of Commerce and 4th Avenue North). Its core purpose is "to demonstrate in a visible, tangible way the vision for the downtown urban core while telling a compelling story that attracts new commercial tenants, new retail businesses and new residential development."

Downtown Development Center Since its opening in January, 2004, the Center has hosted more than 400 Board and committee meetings for numerous organizations, workshops and panel discussions, press conferences, and potential and existing downtown business and residential developers or tenants. The facility is available at no charge for use by private and public sector groups for meetings, workshops and conferences. The large open meeting space accommodates more than 80 people (theater seating) or tables for groups of 6 to 60. A small private conference room seats 10 to 12 people.

Downtown Development Center Development Center updates in July, 2005, include revised LIVE and INVEST wall banners (photos and text) and a new ImageWalls Satellite Digital View (8 by 9 feet) of Downtown Nashville.
