If it is actually true that all of these buildings are simply going to be demolished instead of reused, then that is absolutely disgusting and embarrassing.  It's a shame that our state government still operates as if it is the 1960's.

BNA,

 

If the maintenance costs to keep the buildings standing turns out to be very high would you be for demolition? To me its a pro and con thing, with money being the deciding factor.

I agree, repurpose the building for an additional use. What a waste. Asheville is repurposing a 1930s nursing dormitory to make room for its V.A. mental health offices. With the right vision these buildings in Nashville could be transformed into something great.
