PROCESS: The ULI Gerald D. Hines Urban Design Competition , is an urban planning competition that offers students the opportunity to form their own multidisciplinary team & practice responsible land use. For our entry, we designed the Iron Yard District: a resilient, mixed-use community designed to make Nashville “the place to live” by offering a sustainable & healthy lifestyle. The creation of new public open spaces with the convergence of greenways, bike, & pedestrian paths distinguishes the Iron Yard District, while at the same time connecting to nearby historic neighborhoods. For the branding of the development, we were inspired by the site’s history, specifically the Kerrigan Ironworks, John & Sons Forge, & the Nashville Union Stockyard. The Iron Yard sits at the intersection of these three sites, forging a unique identity for the area.
