Shining Up Nashville, Tennessee’s Star: The Anson

Nashville, Tennessee has undergone an impressive architectural, cultural and economic transformation over the past decade. Its downtown full of neon-clad honky tonks and cheap-thrill tourist attractions has morphed into a trendy, walkable haven of hot chicken set against world-class dining and tiny dives sharing space with state-of-the-art venues and boutique hotels, and all of it alongside a building boom that has sparked redevelopment that radiates from the Gulch to Germantown and beyond. For someone who grew up amongst the din of Printer’s Alley and the down-home charm of a night at the Opry and then moved away, the city might feel nearly unrecognizable today.
