30 Music Square West and RCA Studio A renovation unlikely

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Over the past few months, many Nashvillians have been concerned about the cultural preservation of the city and legendary Music Row.

Last month, Bravo Development LLC bought 30 Music Square West which holds RCA Studio A.

The property was built in 1963 and Bravo Development's CEO, Tim Reynolds, promised the community they would evaluate the property to determine its renovation potential.

Last night, the company released a report explaining that the building requires significant and expensive upgrades to bring it up to all local, state, and federal codes. Some of which include HVAC system, fire alarm and sprinkler system replacement and substantial wall reinforcement.

They also stated the building will most likely not even be able to withstand construction.

Bravo Development concluded by saying it is not structurally or financially feasible for it to renovate 30 Music Square Rest and they are now determining the next step.

Reynolds is also looking for ways to keep the Studio's history as part of any development. He has spoken with many cultural institutions with hopes some will want to help salvage the few cultural elements left of Studio A.
