The battle continues over the fairgrounds and whether Metro is allowed to tear down old buildings to make room for a Major League Soccer stadium. A new court ruling means this fight will likely stay in the court system for at least another year or two.

The Tennessee Court of Appeals overturned a decision of a Davidson County Chancellor who rejected the Save Our Fairgrounds argument about the construction of an MLS stadium. The group argued construction of the stadium would make it impossible for the flea market to operate on the land. The chancellor ruled against that argument, citing city leaders’ plans to construct an expo center the flea market could use.

Thursday, the appeals court sent the case back to the lower court, determining there were key issues argued by the group that were never addressed.

“There were a couple of items of the charter that were had not been considered, and we'll just continue to work the process, keep doing what we can do with our buildings and do what the courts tell us to do,” spokesperson for the fairgrounds Holly McCall said.

She says the push back on the stadium is nothing they’re not used to.

“The push back has been going on for close to ten years now. Mayor Karl Dean had plans earlier to re-develop the fairgrounds, turn it into a corporate business park, and that is when opposition first arose,” McCall said.

The Metro Council is set to consider legislation that could halt demolition at the Nashville fairgrounds to make way for the new Major League Soccer stadium.

A resolution filed by council member Steve Glover looks to request a moratorium on any demolition at the site until a lawsuit by the Save Our Fairgrounds coalition plays out.

The group won its appeal several weeks ago to overturn a Nashville judge's dismissal of the group's lawsuit to stop construction of the city's MLS stadium.

The Tennessee Court of Appeals overturned Davidson County Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle's rejection of the coalition's argument regarding the construction of the stadium — slated to begin at the Nashville fairgrounds later this year — citing it failed to identify "genuine issues."

The coalition, which includes flea market vendors, sued the city over the MLS stadium plans in September, arguing the construction at the fairgrounds and the elimination of 3,500 parking spaces would make it impossible for the Nashville Flea Market to operate on the fairgrounds.

Nashville isn't quite NYC or Miami, would think there would be some other viable plots of land well located in the city for this stadium if need be.

Nashville MLS stadium costs rising, but taxpayers won't be on the hook

The Major League Soccer stadium to be constructed at the fairgrounds will cost between $50 million and $70 million more than initial estimates, but taxpayers will not be on the hook for the rising cost.

Nashville SC ownership will foot the bill for the expenses over the $250 million in public financing they received to build the stadium.

With a capacity of 30,000 fans, it will be the largest stadium built for soccer in North America. Nashville SC CEO Ian Ayre delivered a presentation on the status of the project to the Metro Sports Authority at its meeting on Thursday.

Ayre told The Tennessean the project is on track and and the increased cost is not a cause for concern. He said it was expected that the cost estimate would change as more detailed architecture and design work was completed.

The project will now cost between $325 million and $345 million. The owners already committed $25 million in cash toward the project.

But are the tax payers on the hook for the extra costs? Should the citizens of Nashville be concerned about the rising costs? They didn't really address that 3 times...

Simple design but it seems pleasant enough and looks very practical, a great place for watching a game even if its not the most inspired architecture. It reminds of recent mid size German & Australian stadiums. Have to say I'm surprised the budget is pushing $350 million, thats Banc of California Stadium prices, which while smaller is much fancier building in a much more expensive place to get a building up. This looks like it should be more in the Exploria Stadium price range.

Both of Nashville’s mayoral candidates say the soccer stadium project has to stay at the fairgrounds.

Their statements come after a debate Monday at Belmont University.

The Nissan Stadium across the river, where the NFL Titans play.

I can't say as I'm not privy to their news about ticket sales, but I would guess the hope is to match the MLS average of about 20-22k. Or the thinking is like other teams in NFL venues - First try to fill the lower bowl, and if you can do that try to sell out the 2nd tier, and so on.

Metro Council could consider changing legislation surrounding Nashville's Major League Soccer stadium deal that was intended to protect taxpayers if something goes wrong with the team at the fairgrounds.

Metro Council member Colby Sledge is concerned that a clause in Nashville's MLS stadium deal with the city has proven a hindrance in financing a key part of the project and he wants to change the terms of the agreement in a way that would benefit the team's ownership.

The legislation currently penalizes Nashville SC if the club fails to play a single game in a 24-month period during the first 30 years of its lease at the stadium. If the team fails to meet the terms, the 10-acre land slated for mixed-use development that includes housing, retail, public space and other amenities near the stadium would revert to Metro.

Sledge, whose district includes the city-owned fairgrounds, told The Tennessean on Wednesday he will soon file legislation to fix the "last-minute" amendment the city adopted in September 2018, when council approved Nashville's much-debated $275 million stadium project.
Quote:

It's not clear how Sledge's proposal would change the terms of the amendment but he said it would be determined with input from the ownership group.

Now that fairgrounds renovations are near-complete and Metro's old expo centers are set to be demolished this month to make way for the construction of the stadium to begin early next year, Sledge said "it has gotten to the point of the timeline" where the matter needs to be addressed.

After publishing this story, Mayor Cooper's office responded saying the delay is due to financing and sit infrastructure.

" Mayor Cooper has not signed the demolition contract. This delay in demolition is not about soccer, but rather the extremely complicated financing and site infrastructure concerns that make for a successful project. Before moving ahead with demolition, Mayor Cooper has requested a complete calculation of Metro’s costs and how cost overruns related to infrastructure improvements will be funded."
