President Obama's budget proposal includes $181.5 million
for a new federal courthouse in Nashville. I would prefer us keep the
current courthouse rather than add $181.5 million to the $18 trillion
debt of the United States. However, if we are going to build a new courthouse, I hope we
build an attractive building. The Federal Courthouse at 8th and Broad is
an ugly, ugly building sitting between the beautiful Customs House and
the stately old post office which is now the Frist Museum, which is next to the grand Union Station. Across the street from the court house is the serious Hume-Fogg school and the beautiful Christ Church Cathedral. The federal court house sticks out like a sore thumb due to its ugliness. It may be the ugliest building in Nashville. If not for the ground floor shinny marble veneer, it would look like a
prison or classic soviet architecture. If we build a new courthouse I
hope the current building is torn down and something worthy of the
building's surroundings it is build on that spot.
