Christened the Trousdale Correctional Facility in the spring of 2014, and set to open in early 2016, the emerging 485,741-square-foot medium-security structure already looks like a prefabricated, one-star hotel for the doomed. Its high, dead-gray walls are designed to house 2,552 prisoners, who will be managed by the Corrections Corporation of America, which, based in Nashville, is the largest publicly traded private prison company in the United States.
