Capitol Boulevard Revisited

Capitol Boulevard Revisited

Since the opening of the downtown Library, there has been renewed interest in the role that Capitol Boulevard, the street directly in front of the Library, plays in the life of the city. The Nashville Civic Design Center, the Library’s neighbor at 7th and Church, has been study ing public space downtown over the past year and placed Capitol Bou le vard at the top of its research agenda be cause of its prominence and potential. The drawings presented here are three, of possibly many, concepts for what Capitol Boulevard can become as we con tin u ous ly try to improve the quality of downtown Nashville.
