Here's what Oracle sees in Nashville — no crystal ball necessary.
It doesn't take a crystal ball to understand what Oracle sees in Nashville.
The Texas-based company is the latest tech giant to set its sights on the city with plans to expand to Music City for a new innovation center. On Wednesday, the corporation requested a public hearing approval of an Economic Impact Plan that would bring 8,500 jobs to Nashville and a $1.2 billion dollar investment to the city by the end of 2031.
An agreement negotiation would add Oracle Corporation to Nashville's East Bank in a development that will transform the area, including a $175 million public infrastructure plan that would include a pedestrian bridge and riverfront park without increasing the metro area's debt or impacting local taxpayers.
The company isn't the first to plant its stake in Music City, which is known for its world-class higher education institutes, talented workforce and unparalleled quality of life, all while maintaining affordability.
