tennessee-stateTennessee State University, the historically Black educational institution in Nashville, announced plans for a major new development project along the Cumberland River on campus. Plans call for the 84-acre site to be developed in stages over the next eight years.

When complete, plans call for the development project to include a new hotel and conference center, a business incubation facility, a library, community resource center, residential properties, restaurants and retail stores.

Only a small fraction of the funds needed for the project have been raised. Glenda Glover, president of Tennessee State University stated that funds would need to be raised from state and private sources in order for the plan to become a reality.
