Nashville has found great success and acceptance in jazzing up conventional suburban developments to serve as thriving urban centers. This tour includes former strip malls transformed into vibrant lifestyle destinations, one boasting one of the highest-volume Whole Food stores in the Southeast; a mixed-use high-rise where a garden store once stood; and a dead mall dating from 1967 transformed into a 1 million-square-foot, state-of-the-art health care and retail center acclaimed by ULI, the American Institute of Architects, and other organizations as a model for how to save a mall and revitalize a neighborhood. Come see how thoughtful relationships between people and places result in success and a new development standard for suburbs, benefiting the local economy and supporting healthy lifestyles.
