Wide Enough to Be a River; Not Too Wide to Be an Obstacle

The Tennessean just had a story on the award-winning San Francisco landscape architecture firm, Hargreaves Associates, which is one of the seven competing firms that will come up with a master plan for Cumberland River development from Metro Center to Shelby Bottoms, based on comments culled from several public charrettes held last year. The Cumberland's relatively narrow width apparently provides opportunities that not many other river cities enjoy. The Nashville Civic Design Center has asked the contestants to come up with two "catalyst projects that can stimulate development." Looks like some exciting possibilities in store for us.
