There’s only one thing making more heads swivel than a crane gulping down its freshly caught fish dinner: the rise of the Great Nashville Construction Cranes.
Over the past decade, Nashville has seen a tremendous amount of private and public investment leading to incredible commercial development. We’re not kidding when we call the construction crane one of Nashville’s greatest cranes. For a deeper look into Nashville’s incredible downtown revitalization, take a look at “The Story of Nashville’s Downtown Revitalization.”
