Plans Presented For Fairgrounds Site

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - There was a new glimpse Monday night of what the State Fairgrounds in South Nashville could become.  Five consultants who have been researching the space attended a public meeting about the property.

One suggested replacing the racetrack with an eight-story office building.  Other plan included a residential unit and hotel, and even pumping up to $75 million into building a civic building. 

One consultant suggested the site could produce more than 2,000 jobs, saying that could help Nashville compete with job growth in the Cool Springs area.  Metro Council will have the ultimate say on what will be allowed on the site.
