Nashville’s fairground reconstruction plans are moving forward following last week’s Metro Council approval of a $275 million Major League Soccer stadium, The Tennessean reports. Construction to begin the consolidation of multiple buildings into a newly transformed expo center is slated to begin mid-October. The new expo center will sit on a currently vacant, lower-elevation piece of fairground land, and it will house the Nashville Flea Market as well as other events. Demolition and construction for the MLS stadium are scheduled to begin after the expo center is completed. The future 30,500-seat stadium and 10-acres of mixed-use private development are planned to sit on higher-elevation fairground land.
