New renderings show how green space will be utilized at Nashville Yards

According to concept plans, Ascension Saint Thomas Landing will span the west side of the Nashville Yards project from Broadway to Church Street.

A top-down rendering four sections of trees, a tiered grassy amphitheater space, and lots of sets of circular tables and chairs.

Green space brings all the Nashvillians to the Yard. Concept plans, submitted by local architect Gresham Smith and real estate investment company Southwest Value Partners, show more than a colorful hangout slated for the in-progress Nashville Yards project.

The development’s 1.3-acre west side pedestrian park, to be known as Ascension Saint Thomas Landing, highlights multiple designated activity areas spanning from Broadway to Church Street. Of note is an amphitheater, dog walking area, garden ramp, pickleball courts, and courtyard with ample seating.

That’s not all — Union Station’s track level will have updates of its own, including a new flexible event space, bar, stage, and terrace. Plans go before Metro on Thursday, July 25. Until then, scroll through four more renderings.
