NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Plans are finally unveiled for a new 65-acre, $2.5 billion mixed-use neighborhood nestled along the Cumberland River promising sweeping views of downtown.
“The Riverside” will feature an estimated 5 million square feet of residential, commercial and retail spaces and three public parks and community gardens.
Ewing Properties is behind the development which marks the latest milestone in a transformation happening along the river. Ewing is partnering with the award-winning architectural design company Skidmore, Owings & Merrill that’s responsible for riverfront spaces in Chicago, Detroit, Austin and Sydney.
Drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists will have multiple points of access to the neighborhood from West Trinity Lane.
Developers say three vast parks will be interconnected along the edge of the Cumberland bluff. Here’s a look at the plans for each:
- The Riverside’s centerpiece: Six acres surrounding the summit of the land’s topography and designed to accommodate large- and small-scale programming for holidays and festivals.
- An event lawn for concerts, community programs, and both permanent and temporary art installations.
- Overlooks positioned to offer the most breathtaking views of the Cumberland River and downtown Nashville to all visitors during all hours of the day.
- Wooded trails perfect for natural experiences that are in harmony with the local landscape and allow for walking, running, strolling or sitting
- A dog park that welcomes Nashville’s four-legged friends
- Natural playscapes for children
- Easy access to the riverbank
- Nashville’s playground, featuring inviting spaces for markets and festivals
- Steps that can become seating for concerts or plays
- Outdoor dining and cafes
- Promenades and overlooks along the water that transform into access to waterside and boating activities
