Metro Government, Titans Unveil Renderings Of Proposed New, Enclosed Stadium
The Tennessee Titans have shared renderings of its potential new stadium, which would encompass 1.7 million square feet with a capacity of approximately 60,000.
The renderings follow last week’s announcement that the team and the city of Nashville had reached a proposed agreement for a new, enclosed stadium, which will be discussed by Metro Council and the Sports Authority in the coming weeks. The plan for the $2.1 billion stadium will be paid for by the Titans organization/NFL, bonds from the state of Tennessee as promised by Governor Bill Lee, and through a hotel occupancy tax as well as sales tax at Nissan Stadium and the surrounding area.
“We envision a potential new stadium that makes our community proud and enhances the reputation of our great city and state,” says Titans President and CEO Burke Nihill. “We’re focused on designing a stadium capable of hosting a prestigious international event on a Sunday and a steady flow of impactful community programming later that same week. This is a building that would serve Nashville and Tennessee for generations.”
The stadium designs were created by MANICA, a Kansas City-based architecture firm that has worked on projects such as Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas (which hosted the 2022 ACM Awards) and Chase Center in San Francisco. The team commissioned MANICA to produce the concepts in order to inform site planning and cost estimates.
Hastings, a Nashville-based architecture firm, also participated in the design work, with a particular emphasis on reflecting Nashville’s spirit and character, and a focus on seamlessly integrating the building into the proposed neighborhood surrounding the stadium.
The stadium architecture is inspired by the city of Nashville and is planned to be complementary to the broader East Bank development plan led by the city. The design gave specific attention to multi-purpose function, in order to maximize the number and types of events that could take place in the building.
Key features of the design include:
- Exterior terraces and porches with panoramic views of Nashville that will serve as social space during event days
- A circular-shaped, high-tech ETFE translucent roof
- Improved sight lines for all spectators through diverse viewing experiences
- High-tech and sustainable materials throughout the building
