ParchMay Farm Center is an historic project in the storied history of Nashville, a model of sustainable economic redevelopment right smack dab in the middle of an old, castle-y looking former prison. It's about jobs, working with nature (and possibly ghosts, but heck, they just add character, right?), fighting sprawl, paying homage to both the prison-industrial complex and gated communities, celebrating the underutilized west side of Briley Parkway, and just generally making bank. And helping out Nashville! Did we mention that? You thought The Green Mile and The Last Castle were awesome? Think about how many movies are going to be filmed here now that we're going to build corporate campuses, retail space, and housing on the old Tennessee State Penitentiary site.
