Future Deaderick St.


Nashville_maestro

Recommended Posts

I guess we all forgot but the new MTA hub is finished and opens Monday. This leaves Deaderick St. open for redevelopment. This street is a prime location because it is in the heart of the CBD and houses the widest sidewalks (32 feet) in all of metro Nashville. This leaves the question: how would you like to see Deaderick used in the future?

I would like to see it evolve into a sort of outdoor vendor/shopping area where you could get all sorts of neat things and a corn dog and soda. Whatever happens, I hope it is something uniquely Nashville. I don't want to see another park or Radio Shack's and Pac Sun's lining the street.

The majority of buildings that front Deadrick for the two blocks coming from the War Memorial are state office buildings and many like Nashvillain said do not have any street facing space that could be used for retail. I think the only one that could be revamped would be the Regions bank building.

I think there is a plan for a new street scape on Deadrick. I cant remember what was planned though.

I've been wondering what the MTA will do with the old bus shelters. I can only assume they will be scrapped, however i can think of a much better use. There are several major bus stops around town that could use a larger shelter. Sure, they are old and such, but nothing some fresh paint couldn't help. A covered shelter(even an old one) is better than an exposed bench any day.

FYI, the new MCC is top rate!

im not sure why it is still there, they may use it as an offsite kiosk for a while... i used to go to a magnet school downtown and they didnt have school bus service, so everyone either used city bus service or their parent came and picked them up. it has been quite a while since then, so things may have changed...
