The Cumberland River Compact, a regional watershed association, announced plans Tuesday to establish the Cumberland River Center in the old Nashville Bridge Company building on the east bank of the river.
The building, which sits between LP Field and the Shelby Street pedestrian bridge, was recently renovated.
The 5,200-square-foot Cumberland River Center will occupy the building's third floor and be used to host workshops, forums and training programs in addition to the Cumberland River Compact's administrative offices.
Visitors to Music City can also visit the center to learn about the river, its history and importance to the city of Nashville.
The old Nashville Bridge Company building was renovated last year but previously been abandoned since before the Titans stadium was built in the 1990s.
It was originally built in 1908 and used to build ships and barges.
