See your doc, buy your craft supplies

In an exciting move for Vanderbilt patients and avid Nashville bargain hunters alike, Vanderbilt Medical Center will be taking over 440,000 square feet of space in the long-languishing 100 0aks Mall on Thompson and Powell lanes. Retail on the ground floor, which includes favorites such as Michael’s and T.J. Maxx, will remain while clinics and offices will fill the second and third floors and nearby office tower. Recent drive-bys past the site show a steady removal of the unsightly industrial-chic overlay that has covered the building for years, much to the appreciation of this blogger. I can’t help but wonder, though, if that unusual mechanical dancing cowboy that once graced (perhaps still does) the food court will have a place in the new facility? In any case, the project offers an innovative example of bringing a different community purpose to a dying mall, examples of which are found all over the country.
