Metro Planning Commission To Hold Public Hearing For Music Row Vision Plan

The Metro Planning Commission will hold a public hearing before considering the adoption of the Music Row Vision Plan Thursday, June 27, 2019, beginning at 4 p.m. in the Sonny West Conference Center in the Howard Office Building, 700 Second Avenue South.

The 87-page plan aims to offer preservation for the buildings that make up the character of Nashville’s Music Row area, while also balancing opportunities for development in the area. The plan notes that 12 different multi-family residential developments have been built in the Music Row area since 2010, with 3,274 residential units added to Music Row between 2010-2019.

There has been an 176% increase in property values on Music Row between 2010 and 2019, nearly two-and-a-half times that of Davidson County as a whole, and just trailing Downtown Nashville at 228% increase in property value.

The draft of the plan offers a “Music Row Character Area Map,” which establishes a framework for the desired characteristics of land use, development pattern, etc. The plan outlines four character areas, including “Music Row Center” (which serves as a gateway to the Gulch, Midtown, and Downtown Nashville), “Music Row Core” (north of Grand Avenue, primarily along 18th and 19th avenue south, and extending west to include Warner Music, BMI and Best Western Plus), “Music Row Village” (Primarily between Horton and Grand Avenues) and “Music Row Neighborhood” (Primarily located between Horton and Wedgewood Avenues).
