A “key to downtown revival,” Phil Bredsen, former mayor of Nashville, notes that “that arena was always designed to be the anchor around which we were going to rebuild the downtown environment.” Read the full story about Nashville’s revival and Bridgestone Arena’s role here. Populous-designed First Tennessee Park, also in Nashville, will open April 17th, and is expected to do for the district North of the city “what Bridgestone Arena did for Broadway.”
