State Looks to Acquire and Re-Develop Land Near Jefferson Street and 5th Avenue North

A Nashville Charrette member clarifies details behind a City Paper story on the State's intentions to purchase land for a new State Library and Archives and a new state Museum in the vicinity of Bicentennial Mall:
I believe the State has used the acquisition money to purchase the parcels on the west side of 5th Avenue just south of Jefferson Street (the Hester Batteries block). They are also in negotiations to acquire the block to the east, from 4th to 5th Avenues just south of Jefferson Street.
Please, Tennessee, be kind to the North End in your designs for these buildings.
