Music City Center
The Music City Center is a convention complex located in downtown Nashville, Tennessee, United States. It opened in May 2013. The complex was designed by Atlanta based, TVS Design, Nashville-based Tuck Hinton Architects, and Moody-Nolan Architects and a joint venture, Bell/Clark, headed up the construction management. Before work could start going up, the site teams had to start by going down. Over 200,000 cubic yards of rock and soil were excavated and the 16-acre site took 24 weeks to excavate. Soon after, the six red cranes were erected, the tallest of which reached 200 feet. The concrete team placed 110,000 cubic yards of structural concrete and 13,500 tons of rebar. Over 100,000 man hours were spent deciding where each piece of steel would go and 14,000 tons of structural steel was eventually placed. The project took three years to complete and over 7,300 people worked on the project during that time.
In January 2010, the Metropolitan Council of Nashville voted to approve construction of the Music City Center and the official groundbreaking for the center was held on March 22, 2010. It was decided that the convention center would be built in the new SoBro neighborhood, south of Broadway and right in the heart of downtown. The area was known as Black Bottom until the 1950s, nicknamed because of periodic river floods that left muddy residue on the streets.
In the background, you can see Nissan Stadium (NFL Tennessee Titans) as well as the AT&T “Bat Building”. If you look closely, you can even see the rooftop of the Ryman Auditorium, Nashville’s historic birthplace of country music and the Grand Ole Opry from 1943 to 1974.
