  2. From today's Nashville Post: Fifth + Broadway developers apply for demo permit Fifth + Broadway construction manager Skanska on Monday applied for permits for the demolition and excavation of the former Nashville Convention Center structure as well as the renovation of the existing conference center. The permitting applications follow Skanska’s delivery of the first bid packages last week, according to a release. Fifth + Broadway site demolition work is expected to begin later this year with conference center renovation following soon thereafter. The long-planned downtown mixed-use development is spearheaded by OliverMcMillan and Spectrum | Emery.

  9. The Nashville subforum on Urban Planet recently went over 100,000 posts, making it the 3rd most active city on the UP boards after Charlotte, NC and Grand Rapids, MI. I have to say, even as a newer member of this community, I have already come to cherish this site and the wealth of information it provides. A big thank you to everyone who takes time to contribute. I'm constantly learning new things about our fair city thanks to the folks on here.

  12. Sorry for complaining but... this forum is the last area of my online life where people don't get into silly flame wars about national politics. Any chance we could get back on-topic?

  16. Love the way this turned out even better than I thought. And the Kimpton will be my favorite hotel in the city! Today. All angles and the sail top too. From Church, 3rd, Tryon and College street angles.

  18. This quote from the story has me excited to see the design: “Our development team has design and development expertise in countries around the globe, and we are going to channel that expertise into a 21st-century tower unlike anything in the current Nashville skyline," said Ken Larish, founder and CEO of The Mainland Cos., in a statement.

  19. Looking at AA.com, it looks like the switch happens on 6/2. On 6/1 there are a total of 9 flight to ORD on AA. Seven of them are on CRJ700s, one is on a CRJ100/200, and one is on an ER145. On 6/2 there remains nine total flights, but things change so that three are on CRJ700s, four are on ER145s, and two are on ER175s. None of those are mainline, and whether or not that is an upgrade in service I do not know. I do think the Delta announcement to RDU is interesting in that both of these are seen as secondary markets (compared to the big boys) and I would imagine this will primarily be O&D traffic with very little in the way of connections. That tells me that the population base and economies of the Research Triangle and Middle Tennessee are reaching a point that demands more point to point service between these historically secondary markets. The competition is also good. Southwest has had this route for a long time and having a little competition will be good for fares. One last thing....BNA jumped ahead of Austin Bergstrom and Houston Hobby in terms of passenger numbers for 2016. It now is the 33rd busiest airport in terms of passengers.

  31. Looking like Bridgestone has about 1 more floor to go...then the 30'-40' fins will be installed, which will top it out. Also...notice on the far right, you can start to see the "oval" shape of JWM starting to show up. Also...you can see that Cambria is getting some height.

  37. American Airlines will be adding mainline service, in addition to American Eagle, to Chicago-O'Hare starting June 6th. Also, I'm working to confirm, but Delta may have made the Cancun nonstop permanent and no longer seasonal. So, now you're starting to see the legacy carrier/big boys start to flex a little bit to BNA. The numbers are there, the growth numbers are something to drool over and the reasoning is sound: continued substantial economic and population growth and a burgeoning/booming tourism industry.

  47. I have nothing to add of value, just stating that I'm sitting here with a grin on my face thinking about what that area looked like just 5-10 years ago and now we are talking about a 30 story bldg right at the round about. Nashville is insane in the best way right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  50. A few pictures of the inside of this old bank. If I had many millions I would love to buy this place and really pimp out the inside for my personal residence. You just can't recreate some of the characteristics this place has.
