October 22, 2015 Less than one month after being sworn in as Metro Nashville’s seventh mayor, Megan Barry spoke at oneC1TY to approximately 175 members of Nashville’s Urban Land Institute chapter and NAIOP commercial real estate development association about her goals and favored approaches to continued healthy growth of Nashville’s many beloved neighborhoods. oneC1TY General Manager Ryan Doyle welcomed Mayor Barry and both organizations to the first event hosted inside 8 C1TY Blvd, a newly completed office building at oneC1TY – Cambridge Holdings, Inc.’s sustainable mixed-use development project focused on healthy, mindful living being constructed at Charlotte Avenue and the 28th/31st Avenue Connector.
Mayor Barry stated her administration’s priorities for improving education, transportation and housing. To the gathered real estate professionals present, she encouraged dense development along the city’s corridors and pikes; praised infill projects that preserve green space and provide vibrant live/work/play environments for community benefit; spoke of improving access to Nashville’s Greenways for all neighborhoods; and recognized the positive impact of public / private partnerships like the Connector bridge project, which led the way for oneC1TY’s development, to spur additional private investment throughout Davidson County.
