An incredible new neighborhood is coming to Nashville's northwest side. It's an investment of close to 7 billion dollars. The 65 acre development will be a mixed-use area on the Cumberland.
B. Edward Ewing, CEO of Ewing Properties (the developer) said, “Nashville was established because of the Cumberland River, and today is rediscovering its history and status as a river city that can benefit immensely from this rich natural resource. We are planning the Riverside to be a new, waterfront gateway North of the river – a place that welcomes all residents and visitors to embrace local culture and celebrate the riverfront lifestyle of Nashville’s future. Ewing Properties is so proud to work with the city of Nashville, Council Lady Kyonzte Toombs and local community leaders to help establish Nashville as a leading river city of the 21st century.”
It'll be 5 million square feet of residential, commercial, and retail space. Community gardens and 3 public parks are part of the plan.
Three areas will be connected on the edge of Cumberland Bluff. Here are some highlights of the three areas.
- Wooded trails perfect for natural experiences that are in harmony with the local landscape and allow for walking, running, strolling or sitting
- A dog park that welcomes Nashville’s four-legged friends
- Natural playscapes for children
- Easy access to the riverbank
- The Riverside’s centerpiece: Six acres surrounding the summit of the land’s topography and designed to accommodate large- and small-scale programming for holidays and festivals.
- An event lawn for concerts, community programs, and both permanent and temporary art installations.
- Overlooks are positioned to offer the most breathtaking views of the Cumberland River and downtown Nashville to all visitors during all hours of the day.
- Nashville’s playground, featuring inviting spaces for markets and festivals
- Steps that can become seating for concerts or plays
- Outdoor dining and cafes
- Promenades and overlooks along the water that transform into access to waterside and boating activities
