Crittenton Building In Midtown Meets Its End
Demolition of the Crittenton Building in Midtown Nashville is well underway. The structure was on Historic Nashville Inc's 2016 list of the city’s most endangered historic places; correctly, as it turned out. Salah Ayesh acquired the property at 1815 Division four years ago. For the foreseeable future, the owner will use the site as surface parking, the Tennessean reports.
The building, dating from the late 1920s, was once occupied by such tenants as Sound Stage Associates, Warner Bros Records and radio station WNSR. It was deemed eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Music Row documentation project. Built around 1929, it originally housed a private medical practice and residence, along with the Florence Crittenton Home for Unwed Mothers. [Tennessean]
