Urban Renewal and Adaptive Reuse in Nashville

Description

Adaptive reuse is an investment and like all investments, it takes precious time to pay off. Economically, it makes more sense to demolish a building than nurture it back to health. It is true that not all buildings can or should be rescued by adaptive reuse, but there should be more consideration of reuse as an alternative in some neighborhoods. Razing entire neighborhoods is not only messy; it is destructive to community. When developers choose to invest in people rather than place, cities will thrive under their care. But right now, in the competitive, money-hungry world of development, an abandoned building’s only hope may be passionate people who live in its midst. As a resident of Nashville – or any city – it is critical to be aware of the way the city shifts and changes over time. Consciousness about Nashville’s history and buildings can inspire and enable you to make a difference in the culture of the city itself.
