Janie Wright, an architect with Tuck-Hinton Architects makes her appearance on the news during a Master Plan meeting to discuss the Sobro area’s future in planning and design.

“Now that the Music City Center is about to open it’s doors, plans for the surrounding area are starting to take shape.”

With input from the public, the Nashville Civic Design Center presented and discussed its recently released plan Thursday evening.

“This area south of Broadway could really open up new neighborhoods that could offer amenities like shopping and retail for downtown residents, new residents, downtown workers and people who live all over the city who want to come downtown to do something,” said design director Gary Gaston.
