Plans to add more than 200 new apartments to downtown Nashville’s revitalized area of downtown may include a new street name.
City officials are in talks with the University of Tennessee about the names for the buildings that will house students, faculty and staff.
That could include Mardi gras-themed buildings, as well as other popular celebrations.
The university and City Council are considering the names in a process that is expected to take about two weeks.
Council member Tim McKee said the naming plan is in the works and will be made public after the new term of the city council.
Mardi Grass City, which will be named after the annual event, has been operating since 2014.
The city has more than 1,500 buildings and is home to more than 250,000 people.
It has a student population of 2,800 and is growing rapidly, McKee, who is also a council member, said.
The council will vote on the naming plans at its meeting Wednesday.
