Nashville West details from Eric Crafton

Metro Council member Eric Crafton shares some details about the Nashville West development in this week's issue of the Westview newspaper:
Scheduled to open in the spring of 2007 are the following: Target, Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Marshall’s. Phase 2 which is scheduled to open in the winter of 2007 or early 2008 are Pier One, Old Navy and a large book store. Phase 3 to be completed in 2008 will see Pet Smart, Staples, Party City and McDonalds, Starbucks, Panera Bread and an upscale restaurant. In addition, in the spring of 2008, there will be a four-acre plaza surrounded by four nice restaurants, all with terraces that overlook the plaza. The plaza will be a community park where families can spend time together. This project is very exciting for the west side of town. So long thirty minute drive to Cool Springs!
This area near our neighborhood is about to change substantially. What a dramatic transition.

    Chik-fil-a would be nice

    Whatever happened to Cost Plus, much better than Pier 1 and cheaper.

    Thanks for the update Councelman Crafton... Hopefully these new employers won't unfairly discriminate against the Spanish speaking workers.

  4. I think Cost Plus is still planned for the development. Chik-fil-a could stand to have a location closer to downtown, too.

    I agree about the last comment, although I'm not Eric Crafton. (Ha ha.) I hope these new employers won't discriminate against anyone who is a worthy candidate for a job.
