Trail West building demolished overnight.

The Trail West building on lower Broadway which was on the Register of Historical Places and listed by Historic Nashville as one of the most endangered historic building worth saving, is no more. The building was torn down overnight.  This site has been the subject of controversy. At one time a hotel wanted to build on the site and then Walgreen wanted to keep the buildings but open a Walgreen there. Council member Gilmore left these parcels out of a historic overlay protection for the site for a long time. They were only included in the last meeting of the last council.  A demolition permit was not issued for the site, but the attached link explains why that was not necessary. For an explanation of how and why this demolishing occurred follow this link.
