Music Row is the symbolic heart of Nashville's music and entertainment industry. In January 2015, the National Trust for Historic Preservation announced Music Row as a National Treasure. Since 2015, Metro planners have been working with Music Row stakeholders to understand historical assets and define challenges threatening Music Row. Extensive community outreach and analysis have been undertaken to further clarify core issues affecting the area.
Over the last four years, Metro Planning staff has worked closely with community members, music industry leaders, and other stakeholders to create the Music Row Vision Plan. This document identifies the significance of, and pressures facing Music Row, and contains a broad range of recommendations and action steps to pursue. The overarching theme of the Vision Plan is to ensure that Music Row continues to be a vital hub of music business and innovation, and a unique creative cluster within Nashville. It is a planning document, but also a call to action for the public and private sectors, neighbors and developers, and all those who support and strengthen the Row.
The purpose of the Music Row Vision Plan is to guide and inform the preparation and consideration of implementation tools and development proposals.
